Today the performance has been made available for fans to enjoy across the globe, calling back to that in-person, packed house concert sensation and continuing to remind us what a brilliant and skilled artist Jacob is.

Earlier this year, Collier earned two GRAMMY Awards for his Djesse Vol. 1 and Djesse Vol. 2 albums.
At the JammJam, the invite only pop up event was filled wall-to-wall with music royalty such as Quincy Jones himself and Harvey Mason Jr., Recording Academy Chief Chairman. Jacob took the stage to perform a solo version of “She’s Out of My Life,” mesmerizing everyone in the room before delivering his beautiful rendition of “Human Nature.” The musical virtuoso offered an extended jam session that combined the international musical talents of Alfredo Rodriguez (Cuba), Munir Hossn (Brazil), Eric Zayne (Democratic Republic of Congo) and drummer/founder of Jammcard, Elmo Lovano (US).
