The Root 100—A Celebration of Black Excellence

I sing backup for Stevie Wonder

Say hello to Jasmin Cruz. The premiere episode of All I Do, our new series about young Americans and work, features Jasmin, 27, a Miami native and backup singer for the legendary Stevie Wonder. Jasmin began singing occasionally with Mr. Wonder in 2012, but didn’t quit her job as an ad agency assistant in NYC until late last year, when she decided to commit to music — and her spot in Mr. Wonder’s band — fulltime. Using original interviews and images taken by Jasmin during Mr. Wonder’s “Songs in the Key of Life” tour in 2014 & 2015, we’ve created a portrait of a young woman practicing her craft alongside one of modern music’s most important artists.
