Do you know Esperanza Spalding? If the likes of Ledisi, Jill Scott, India.Arie and Cassandra Wilson do it for you, like they do for me, you should know Esperanza. This clip offers you an opportunity to learn a bit about her before she sings “Precious.” Though I don’t have a “him,” this song perfectly articulates an introduction for a potential him or a dismissal for a “him” gone wrong.

She croons, “But I’m not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy/Trying to explain and being ashamed of things you think are wrong with me …” It’s the ideal anthem.
