13-Year-Old Jazz Artist Alexander Nominated for 2k17 Grammy

December 29, 2016

Music makes 13-Year-Old Jazz Musician Joey Alexander "happy, joyful, and thankful". The boy who loves to "jam and have fun" with other musicians is self-taught. The jazz pianist has worked with long-time artists who discovered his music on YouTube. Marsalis along with other members of the jazz community helped him and his family move from Jakarta to New York City, so Alexander could pursue him dreams.
