Nashville-based songwriter and jazz vocalist Sonja Hopkins has a vocal texture that encompasses the high-spirited tones of nostalgic jazz. She has been singing since her childhood in Mobile, Alabama, where she began her journey in a small Baptist church.
Hopkins’ gospel roots can be heard when she renders tunes like “In a Sentimental Mood” and “At Last.” With subtle soulful undertones, she seeks to convey her passion for love and music. She brings a fresh, eclectic sensibility to contemporary jazz; however, she also has the vocal strength and richness to deliver jazz classics like “Misty” and “Cry Me a River.”
Admission is free for college students with valid school ID on Thursday and Friday evenings from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. (with the exception of Frist Fridays).
