Melody Gardot is a jazz singer and an amazing, inspirational person that I am thankful for learning about at the library! Her story is not without tragedy. At the age of 19, she was hit by a car and as a result of extensive damage ended up with severe neurological complications that she continues to deal with to this day. Using music as a form of therapy, she has risen to be one of the most enticing jazz singers I have ever heard.
Gardot's first album, Worrisome Heart came out in 2008. In 2009, she released My One and Only Thrill. Ms Gardot continues to advocate for music therapy and inspire those that face overwhelming obstacles.
