About the Performance

 “…it’s obvious Jazzmeia Horn is a singer to watch out for…With the depth of feeling and personality of Billy Holiday and the virtuosity and playfulness of Sarah Vaughan…” Revive

Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist and Winner of the 2015 Thelonious Monk Competition, Jazzmeia Horn has a name that speaks for itself capturing her very essence. With an assured maturity and vocal confidence far beyond her years, the young singer stands ready to take her place alongside the best headlining jazz vocalists of today.

A concert with Jazzmeia is an impressive treat of standards, hard bop anthems, spirituals, and R&B nuggets – an experience reflective of our times. Jazzmeia says her work is, “a call to social responsibility, to know your role in your community.” Great story-telling, an inspired message, fluid vocals, scat-singing, and spirited group performances – her debut album, A Social Call, features all one would hope to hear from a veteran vocalist of longstanding reputation. As such, the album serves as a clarion call, proudly announcing the arrival of a young, confident musical talent with a bright future ahead of her, blessed with a name that carries its own destiny.
