Vocalist Jazzmeia Horn has been widely recognized for her talent, including winning the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and the 2015 Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition, as well as earning Grammy nominations for each of her full-length albums. Horn’s compositions weave the warmth and feeling of classic jazz with touches of R&B and hip-hop, all held together by her fleet scatting and intuitive vocal phrasing. Berkeley audiences were introduced to Horn’s artistry in her Cal Performances at Home video in fall 2020, and she returns this season for her in-person Cal Performances debut. For her latest project, developed during the pandemic, Horn has crafted a new set of songs that offer a positive message of triumph over adversity.
