Freshest Voices is a singing showcase of the MOST FRESHEST VOICES in the Seattle area. Eight contestants UNDER THE AGE OF 24 will compete for the Freshest Voices crown!
Freshest Voices 2014 will be held on Saturday, May 24th from 7-10pm at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. The winner will receive a cash prize as well as a professional photoshoot and a performance slot at the 6th Annual Freshest Voices Competition in 2015.
This year we are proud to announce Berkeley’s own Xiomara as our Featured Artist!
Xiomara’s unique compositions incorporate elements of Jazz, Soul, R&B and Hip-Hop into distinct grooves that conjure thoughts of Norah Jones playing Ray Charles or Erykah Badu reinterpreting Black Star. Exposed to a wide-ranging palette of sounds by her mother (the daughter of a music professor) and Afro-Cuban percussionist father, the guitar strumming songstress shines brightest in her unconventional takes on modern classics.
Also performing: Ariyanna Fernandez, last year’s winner.
We will have a panel of judges comprised of local musicians, professors and the like. The performers will be scored in multiple categories including audience favorite.
*Note: Voting will happen at the end of the event.
Advance tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets.
