Sarah Vaughan Competition – Top 5!

I am so thrilled to announce that I’ve been chosen as one of the 5 finalists for the 2014 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition! It’s truly an honor to have been chosen, and I can’t wait to sing in November!

Now in its 3rd year, The Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, also known as the SASSY awards, honors the talent and tradition of the competition’s namesake as the only international jazz vocal competition of its kind, providing a platform for one outstanding jazz singer to launch a career within the music business. Previous winners include Jazzmeia Horn (2013) who will be performing at the Jazz and Soul Show at NJPAC on November 13th and Cyrille Aimee (2012), the first-ever winner of the competition, whose major label debut in August 2014 was called “a bravura turn, presented with a smile,” by The New York Times.

The first two years of the competition saw nearly 1,500 total song submissions, which music fans from around the globe shared, listened, voted, commented on, and liked nearly one million times online. Furthermore, the competition received over 2 million hits during last year’s competition, making it the world’s most visible jazz vocal competition
