Now's the Time: Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae isn't a jazz musician. And she had to leave her native Kansas City, Kansas, to find fame. Even so, she's the biggest star to come from the area in years. I also happen to adore her. Monae will perform at the Independence Events Center on Saturday, May 28.

She says all the right stuff in the interview at the end of her performance but how could she butcher a beautiful song like that.

The melody does not need the inflection and it goes to show that some people talk a great game.
