Music at the Frist: Sonja Porter Hopkins, Jazz Vocalist
Frist Center Cafe
Fri, Apr 19 6:00 pm


Nashville-based songwriter and jazz vocalist Sonja Porter 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.”
