About Mykal Kilgore:
Mykal Kilgore is a versatile performer known for effortlessly stretching across musical genres, blending together the hope of gospel, the soul of R&B, and the vulnerability of country. His credits include Motown the Musical, The Book of Mormon, Hair), The Wiz! Live, Jesus Christ Superstar Live and viral videos (“Reclaiming my Time”). Kilgore was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2021 for his single, “Let Me Go.” Simply put: Kilgore contains multitudes. Kilgore electrified the CCA audience in 2019 when he opened for India.Arie on the CCA main stage.
About Jamison Ross:
The music of Jamison Ross shimmers between jazz, R&B, soul, gospel and blues. Think of a mix of Donny Hathaway and Elvin Jones. One minute you’re enjoying his super-soulful voice, gospel inflections and infectious love of melody; the next you’re digging his grooving, swinging drumming with his band.
His 2015 debut release, Jamison, introduced the world to his concept of rhythm and melody and also garnered a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album. His sophomore release, All For One, takes listeners a level deeper into Jamison’s ethos. The album is a result of a personal revelation that "we all have the capacity to love with empathy in a deeper way." Ross thoroughly delighted CCA attendees in his virtual performance and personable Q & A last December.
