A five-time Grammy winner Terence Blanchard
’s take on hearing Quiana Lynell
for the first time was “a serious vocal discovery.” He added, “Quiana Lynell was already a vocal presence. When I first heard her sing, my initial thought was ‘Who are you, where have you been, and why am I just hearing you now?’”
