Esperanza Spalding, the 2011 Grammy Award winner for Best New Artist, announced her plans to perform intercontinentally in 2012 with a series of dates that will take her to North America, England and France.

Her win at the Grammys in 2011 was a landmark win for the jazz genre as she is the first jazz musician to win Best New Artist honors. She won over mainstream acts Justin Bieber, Florence & The Machine, Drake and Mumford & Sons. Quite a feat.
