     The annual Singers Showcase concerts have presented some of Berklee’s most exceptional lead vocalists since 1983. Susan Tedeschi, Paula Cole, Lalah Hathaway, Robin McKelle, and Karmin’s Amy Heidemann all performed while they were students. This year, Singers Showcase celebrates its 30th anniversary with a concert that highlights exceptional voices from Berklee’s current international student population, and hit songs by famed Showcase alumni.

    The Berklee Singers Showcase 30th Anniversary Concert takes place Thursday, December 5, at the Berklee Performance Center, 136 Massachusetts Avenue. Tickets are $8 in advance, and $12 the night of the show. Tickets are available at the Berklee Performance Center box office, or at berklee.edu/bpc. Call 617-747-2261. The Performance Center is wheelchair accessible.
    More than 100 vocalists auditioned for Singers Showcase. Each singer is given two minutes to impress a panel of judges with just an acoustic guitar or piano accompanying them. Ultimately, eight singers are chosen. They rehearse for weeks, and then appear in Berklee’s largest concert hall performing R&B, pop, gospel, musical theater, country, and Latin songs.
    Featured this year are student vocalists Natalia Sulca, Jennifer Hoyt, D.J. Scaife, Choyoung Ahn, Ariana Hall, Nigel Taye, Tickwanya Jones, Gabriella Carillo. In the first half of the concert, these signers will perform songs by Mariah Carey, Billy Porter, Jessie J, The Script, Christina Aguilera, and others. The concert’s second half will feature signature songs by famous Singers Showcase alumni.
    Guest vocalists from more recent Singers Showcases will be Daniel McClain, whose songs were recorded by Earth, Wind & Fire on their latest CD, and Deanna Della Cioppa, a finalist on season 8 of the TV talent showcase America's Got Talent.
