Rare Guitars at the Grammys

GRAMMY Museum

800 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, 90015

12:45pm

Already making waves in the U.K., Jimi Hendrix got his big break in the U.S. when he performed on June 18, 1967 at the Monterey International Pop Festival, held at the county fairgrounds in Monterey, CA. Recommended to festival organizers by Paul McCartney, the Jimi Hendrix Experience tore through eight songs (four covers and four originals) with Hendrix wielding this black, rosewood fret board, ’66 Strat. For their ninth and final number, “Wild Thing,” Hendrix swapped guitars for a less-treasured white Strat which he then famously burned and smashed. America and rock n’ roll was forever changed.

On loan by Julien’s Auctions and will be sold at www.juliensauctions.com in May 2016.

Spotlight: Judith Hill

GRAMMY Museum

800 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, 90015

8:00pm

GRAMMY-winning soul singer/songwriter Judith Hill has shared her musical gifts in a variety of ways. The Los Angeles native has been a background singer for such legends as Stevie Wonder, Ringo Starr, and the late Michael Jackson, serving as the latter's duet partner on the classic ballad, "I Just Can't Stop Loving You," which later became a highlight of Jackson's posthumously released film This Is It. She also appeared in the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom, which earned her a GRAMMY for Best Music Film. Hill subsequently appeared on The Voice, where she began to cement her identity as a solo artist with a series of knockout performances that showcased her ability to put her own unique spin on familiar songs. After seeing an interview with Hill, during which the singer expressed her desire to collaborate with Prince, the GRAMMY-winning artist called Hill personally and said he'd love to work with her. Prince played on and co-produced (with Hill) Judith's debut solo album, Back in Time, which showcases Hill's soulful, powerhouse voice and considerable songwriting prowess, with smart, deeply felt songs about racial injustice and overcoming struggle, nestled comfortably alongside supremely funky party jams that Hill says are a celebration of music, community, and family. Following her captivating performance at the "Earth in Concert: Protecting the Planet Through Music" benefit in November 2015, the GRAMMY Museum is excited to welcome back Judith Hill to the Clive Davis Theater for a special night of music and conversation.
