Jennifer Higdon didn't start composing until she was 21, but that late start hasn't stopped her from becoming one of the world's most in-demand composers. Higdon just won her second Grammy award for best contemporary classical work. In 2010, she was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for her Violin Concerto, written for Hilary Hahn.
