NEWARK, NJ – (May 15, 2017) For the sixth consecutive year, singers from around the world will gather online to compete in the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition — a  21st century version of the amateur night at the Apollo Theater that helped launch the career of a gifted teenager from Newark, Sarah “Sassy” Vaughan, more than 70 years ago. 

But this year, there’s a slight change in tempo: For the first time, the competition at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) has been opened to male singers as well as female.
