Last year's best new artist, Esperanza Spalding, is back winning Grammys again this year — with a little help from the music teacher who began training her when she was 8.
The jazz star and her teacher, Thara Memory, claimed the award for best instrumental arrangements accompanying vocalist(s) for "City of Roses" at Sunday's Grammy pre-telecast.
Spalding escorted Memory to the stage to accept the award and was moved when speaking about their student-teacher relationship. She also noted the "City of Roses" composition features some of Memory's 16-year-old students.
Spalding also won a Grammy Sunday for best jazz vocal album for "Radio Music Society."
