Gregory Whitehead nominated singer-songwriter Gelsey Bell

Gelsey Bell, an inspiration, a breath of pure air: for her fearless wanderings through the mysterious labyrinth of the human voice; for the shadows and embers of her own magnificent voice; for her devotion to an honest relationship listeners and readers, free from jargon and obfuscation; for her open engagement with a wide diversity of other voices far from her own; for the light touch of her scholarship, and the depths of her intuition; for her wit, her humor, her laugh, and her happy feet.
