J’Nai Bridges Performs Tiny Desk Concert for NPR’s Black Music Month series!

J’Nai Bridges joins NPR in its celebration of Black Music Month with a new Tiny Desk (Home) concert!

Her program, consisting of works like “Habanera” from Carmen by Georges Bizet, “Prayer” by Carlos Simon, and Duke Ellington’s “Heaven”, features Damien Sneed on piano, Nolan Nwachukwu on bass, and Christian Xavier McClendon McGhee on drums.

In a message to the Tiny Desk team, she wrote: “I remember NPR’s Tiny Desk series premiering and thinking how refreshingly authentic and intimate these performances were. I often had dreams of performing here, but admittedly, I didn’t think it was possible for opera singers to effectively express themselves in this way. I was wrong.”
