Apollo Music Café: Samara Joy


Having won the 2019 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition at the age of 19, Samara Joy is a self-possessed, deeply emotive vocalist with dynamic power. This rising star has been praised for masterfully referencing Apollo legends like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan in her captivating performances with nods to contemporary artists including Cécile McLorin Salvant, Jazzmeia Horn, and H.E.R.

Tapped as one of America’s most promising young vocalists, Joy comes to the Apollo’s Music Café for an intimate performance that allows audiences to get to know this star on the rise. For 11 years, the Apollo Music Café, located on the Apollo’s Soundstage, has served as a launching pad for numerous artists, showcasing their unique artistry in an intimate nightclub setting that serves as a timely throwback to the Renaissance.
