— Ben Gundersheimer is a Latin GRAMMY Award-winning artist, author, activist and educator. Hailed as “a bilingual rock star” by the Washington Post, he was originally dubbed Mister G by his young students while pursuing a Master of Education degree. His dynamic, interactive bilingual performances aim to dissolve borders and foster cross-cultural connections.
A graduate of Amherst College and the recipient of the first songwriting scholarship awarded by the Berklee College of Music, Ben created a curriculum that incorporates songwriting as a learning tool for his Masters of Education thesis. Inspired by his 4th grade students, he began writing the songs that would comprise his debut family album while working as a classroom teacher.
More than a decade later, Mister G has released 12 albums of original, multicultural music and
received numerous accolades including a Latin GRAMMY Award and five Parents’ Choice Gold
Awards. He tours internationally headlining performing arts centers, festivals, and theaters,
performing in both English and Spanish.
