Guests have played in the bands of Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Elton John, Ray Charles, Billy Joel, Shakira, Stanley Clarke, Stevie Wonder, B. B. King, Chick Corea, Barbara Streisand, Tower of Power, Marcus Miller, Leonard Cohen, Enrique Iglesias, Herbie Hancock, Miley Cyrus, George Michael, Destiny's Child, Snarky Puppy, The Buena Vista Social Club, John Legend, Kirk Franklin, and many more. Multiple artists have been featured on NBC's The Voice, appeared in Time Magazine and People Magazine, and one was featured in an Academy award-winning and Grammy-winning documentary.
