Terence Blanchard

A leading figure in jazz and film scores, Blanchard became the voice of a grieving city after New Orleans nearly drowned in Hurricane Katrina. His album A Tale of God's Will used a trumpet to touch the emotions of his fellow Nolans in a way few words were able to do. Blanchard also appeared in Spike Lee's seminal documentary When the Levees Broke, in which he was filmed walking his mother through her storm-ravaged home.
