Top Music of 2015: Orpheus Rising

With the Grammys continuing to be hellbent on erasing PoC excellence from the industry we created, I decided to celebrate some of music’s best and brightest with an alternative celebration known as the Orpheus Awards.

The following are my favorite picks of 2015. And if you’re looking for quality music, you should definitely check out these titles if you haven’t already:

Best Musical Episode or Music Special

The Muppets: Karaoke Night

Yo-Yo Ma & Misty Copeland
