Sharon Clark

 “You can’t underestimate the transformation of what seems like an ordinary song when an interpreter like Sharón Clark, a Washington-based jazz and soul diva, tears it apart and peers inside.  . . . Ms. Clark’s voice is rich, her phrasing unfussy, her jazz embellishments minimal.”  -- Stephen Holden, New York Times

Washington, D.C. standout Sharón Clark has brought festival and concert audiences to their feet across the globe.  And wherever she performs, the critics take notice:

"New and amazing . . . an absolute triumph"!  
-- Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal

“You can’t underestimate the transformation of what seems like an ordinary song when an interpreter like Sharón Clark tears it apart and peers inside." 
-- Stephen Holden, New York Times  

“A revelation . . .  I never thought I'd hear a singer with the range, musicality and command of tone and timbre that was Sarah at her best, but now I have.”
--JazzTimes

“Sharón Clark’s impeccable scat singing, phrasing and ability to improvise have made her one of the most popular American jazz vocalists in Russia.” 
--Moscow Times

Ms. Clark has made countless international tours, from Europe to Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Russia, where she has developed a major following. Ms. Clark has performed as a featured soloist with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, the Richmond Symphony, and the Baltimore Symphony.  

She has appeared in countless festivals at home and abroad.  Both the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and The Ludacris Foundation chose Ms. Clark to perform for their separate tributes to Quincy Jones. 

Ms. Clark won the Gold Medal and $10,000 top prize at the Savannah Music Festival's American Traditions Competition. She then took first place in the Billie Holiday Vocal Competition, which offers a $2,500 prize along with a featured appearance with the Baltimore Symphony.
