Grammy-winning Garrett hosts Master Class

Grammy Award-winning Siedah Garrett visited OLu on Sept. 27 to speak to students as a part of OLu Arts Academy Master Class.

The OLu Arts Academy held its first Master Class of the season on Wednesday, Sept. 27, featuring Grammy Award-winning and two-time Academy Award nominated songwriter, Siedah Garrett.

Best known for co-writing Michael Jackson’s megahit “Man in the Mirror” from his chart-topping 1987 album Bad, Garrett's career has spanned decades, while working with many of the greatest artists and producers of all-time, including Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Earth Wind & Fire and Quincy Jones. Garrett's lyrics "If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself, and then make a change" continue to inspire young voices around the globe.

Garrett spoke with OLu students about the craft of songwriting, the disciplines needed for a career in the arts, and then worked with small groups on vocal and performance technique. She finished the evening with an emotional performance of her chart topping single, "Man in the Mirror."

Watch Garrett sing "Man in the Mirror" here.
