Jon Batiste. That’s it. Just Jon Batiste.
Of his 11 nominations, Batiste won five awards at the 2022 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year. After his impassioned album of the year acceptance speech, Batiste brought his words of wisdom to the press room.
“I think there is so much of our greatest natural resource that is wasted because of people trying to be like someone else. Our greatest natural resource is the human soul…” said Batiste to journalists.
He continued, “That’s one of the beautiful things about art and creativity is that people are themselves, and they put it on canvases and put it on albums and put it on T-shirts, and people see this, and they’re like, ‘This is drugs. I want to be like this. I want to feel like this. So I hope this resonates in that frequency and that it breeds more greatness.
