The 2019 Grammy Awards have been a night of epic performances from female artists, from Janelle Monáe to Dolly Parton. One of the showstoppers of the night came from Cardi B performing her new hit "Money." While we certainly can't ignore the rapper's impressive regalia and high energy, there's another star in the showcase who took our breath away: Chloe Flower, the piano player who jump-started the song with attitude for days.
Also known as Chloe Won, the 33-year-old Los Angeles-based composer and pianist has been in the music scene for some time, starting off as a classically trained pianist. In 2011, Flower opened during the Italian popera group Il Volo's US tour. While she has roots in classical music, her talent has been showcased in pop music. Her sound has been featured on rapper Nas's "A Queen Story," Celine Dion's "Lullaby," and Timbaland, JAY-Z, and Drake's "Know Bout Me." In 2018, she released the singles "Chopsticks," "Nocturne," "Radiance," and "LA LA Land," her signature style merging classical music with contemporary beats. She is currently working on her debut album.
In addition to her music, Flower is known for her commitment to speaking on human rights activism. In 2013, Jada Pinkett Smith and Lisa Ling presented her with the Creative Coalition Award for Outstanding Achievement for her work against human trafficking at the second annual CAST gala.
