By: Elizabeth Garrison

On Wednesday, Grammy-nominated Jazz singer Jazzmeia Horn will be performing at the Hopkins Center of the Arts at 7 p.m. in Spaulding Auditorium. With her impressive vocal chops and irresistible stage presence, Horn’s performance promises to be memorable. Hopkins Center for the Arts publicity coordinator Rebecca Bailey commented on Horn’s broad range of stylistic capabilities and said that she was “blown away that someone in their mid-twenties could have the depth of artistry that [Horn] has in jazz.”

Horn catapulted to international stardom after winning the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition in 2015. Her debut solo album, A Social Call, achieved critical success and received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album. At the 2018 Grammy awards ceremony, Horn dazzled audiences with her show-stopping performance of “Moanin.” At only 28 years old, she is a musical force to be reckoned with.
