What do the most superlative brands, the world’s most renowned stages, and the most prestigious conferences have in common? They’re bringing in the one and only Jade Simmons!
Jade spent the first few years of her career performing as a classical concert pianist. Following an artistic epiphany, she pivoted from playing the piano to impress audiences to using the piano as the vehicle by which to provide the inspiration, information and entertainment that profoundly moves them instead.
No stranger to pushing boundaries to see bold results, this concert pianist turned world changer is brought in by the likes of corporations like NBCUniversal, Mass Mutual, DaVita, Royal Bank of Canada, DOW, Raytheon, the Hershey Company, Genentech, Valic, Pfizer and Nationwide to redefine purpose, inspire seismic shifts in mindset and activate audiences to go out and instantly start living more consequential lives of impact.
The one-of-a-kind artist has built a one-of-a-kind career garnering diverse recognition from unlikely places. She’s played renowned halls, including the hallowed ones of the White House and the US Supreme Court and her genre-bending concert adventures that span Rachmaninoff to Rap attract diverse audiences of all ages and backgrounds. For her work on and away from the stage, Essence magazine featured Jade alongside former First Lady Michelle Obama as a part of their Style & Substance List. As one of the rare classical artists invited to perform at the taste-making South by Southwest Festival, her show was ultimately branded one of the “Best of SXSW 2014”. She’s starred in a Broadway-style musical called Lillette’s Rhythm Club and she can be heard portraying Nina Simone’s classical years in the Oscar-nominated documentary What Happened Miss Simone?
