Afro-Blue

Afro-Blue

Afro-Blue is a fun-loving Jazz/Pop a cappella ensemble from Howard University in Washington, D.C. The group started as a class in the music department at Howard in 2002, with this current version of the group singing together since 2009. They have plenty of soul, and all ten members meld together quite nicely. With beautiful harmonies, soaring solos and a fresh look, Afro-Blue is a legitimate contender in any singing competition in which they are involved.

Group members include: Eliza Berkon, Reggie Bowens, Trenton Cokley, Christie Dashiell, Integriti Reeves, Devin Robinson, John Kenniebrew, Mariah Maxwell, Brian Vickers and Danielle Withers.

In fall 2011, Afro-Blue was selected as one of sixteen groups to perform in NBC's a cappella music show, "The Sing-Off". Afro-Blue finished fourth in the competition.

iTunes

Afro-Blue's performances from "The Sing Off" are available for purchase on iTunes. Note that groups performed twice on some episodes, and each group performed in only two of the first four episodes.
