2016 Grammy's 

Congratulations to Buddy Guy,  
I am so honored to have been a part of an incredible Album "Worthy" by the insanely talented, tenacious, lady of Soul Bettye LaVette, Do yourself a favor and go out and buy this incredible album. Get out to see her shows, she is an exceptional performer, you can't take your eyes off her. I will get a new song out of this experience and hopefully I can work with Bettye again. And with all your support she will take it home next time. Congrats to all the winners and nominees....
Here is a picture of us at the iridium the night before the Grammy's.

"When Christine Santelli sings you can see the pain, the joy, the passion, and the experience of all women in the world all at one time. Its' deep. It's soulful. And its meaningful. She has the wisdom of the ages in her voice and you can see it right there on her face. She's a revelation."-Willie Nile
