Music Stars Come Out To Support Sojam Music Fest

Many pop stars support SoJam, the #1 a cappella music festival in the U.S., taking place in Raleigh, N.C. November 2-4, 2012. Sara Bareilles, American Idol's Blake Lewis and Take 6's Claude McKnight have Tweeted to fans to attend the event in Nov.

PRLog - Oct. 24, 2012 - The 10th Annual SoJam A Cappella Musical Festival will feature an all-star lineup this year, including Pentatonix, Finland’s Fork, The Edge Effect and a host of college a cappella groups from around the country.    

Now in its 10th year, SoJam is the largest a cappella music festival in the nation, playing host to thousands of attendees, numerous up-and-coming high school and college a cappella performers from around the country, as well as outstanding professional a cappella acts from around the globe. This year, the festival will be held November 2-4, 2012 and is moving from the Carolina Theater to the 2200-seat Progress Energy Center in downtown Raleigh.  

Pentatonix (winner of the NBC reality series “The Sing-Off”) and Finnish quartet Fork will be headlining the concert at the festival on Saturday night.  The festival also includes a college competition (Friday night), many workshops and masterclasses, parties, and music-themed events (Saturday and Sunday). Participants, from headliners to competitors, even attendees and family, attend the festival as an enjoyable way to learn, inspire, be inspired, and work alongside burgeoning young talent in the a cappella community.  In addition, WRAL-FM’s morning personality, Vanna Fox, will host Saturday night’s concert.

“SoJam just keeps getting bigger, better and more exciting,” said SoJam executive producer Mark Hines.  “In addition to our incredibly stellar roster of top vocal talent, some big names in music are lending their voices to support our event.  Pop music star Sara Bareilles has Tweeted to her followers about SoJam, former ‘American Idol’ finalist Blake Lewis will also Tweet to his followers about this year’s show, and I’ve just learned that Take 6’s Claude McKnight is also on board to help us promote the event via Twitter and Facebook,” Hines continues.  “With the giant successes of 'Glee' and the new film 'Pitch Perfect,' a cappella music is finally enjoying the widespread popularity it so richly deserves, and we’re so gratified that so many important names in music have joined forces with us to get the word out about this year’s event.”
