"The darkness will try to overtake you, but just turn on the light. Focus on the light. Hold onto the light."
Musician Jon Batiste reflecting on life-events. His wife, author Suleika Jaouad, recently underwent her second bone marrow transplant — an attempt to save her life as she fights leukemia once again. The couple learned of Batiste’s Grammy nominations on Jaouad’s first day of chemotherapy during this second cancer fight; she previously battled leukemia a decade ago. Batiste was the most nominated artist this year and won the most Grammys — 5 — including Album of the Year. He says he believes music is “more than entertainment … it’s a spiritual practice.”
