KICK-OFF BLACK MUSIC MONTH WITH SAMARA JOY

Cultural Arts For Everyone is proud to present three times Grammy Award Winning Jazz Vocalist, Samara Joy on Monday, June 3 at 7:30 PM, live at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets from $35 – $100 are available at the box office or at all Ticketmaster outlets.

In jazz, every generation has a few budding artist who burst on the scene seemingly out of nowhere, fully formed. The 24-year-old vocalist, Samara Joy makes her case to join the likes of Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday as the next jazz-singing sensation. Ms. Joy has also been compared to Mahalia Jackson and Ms. Nancy Wilson. Her encore version of Guess Who I Saw Today is leaving audiences begging for more! The New York Times praised the “silky-voiced rising star” for “helping jazz take a youthful turn” while NPR All Things Considered named her a “classic jazz singer from a new generation.” In February 2023, the young jazz singer earned two Grammy Awards for her first album, Linger Awhile—including a well-deserved win as Best New Artist award. She won a third Grammy this year for Best Jazz Performance (“Tight”).
