Sharón Clark started singing at the age of seven and has not stopped since. She has performed internationally to great acclaim. Ms. Clark has been on tour in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, throughout Turkey on behalf of the U.S. Embassy in Istanbul, and extensively in Russia (including appearances in Moscow at The Composers Club, the International House of Music and seven appearances at the Red Square Jazz festival; and tours in St. Petersburg, Siberia and Kamchakta). In 2013, Ms. Clark performed her first tour in Israel. In 2014, she performed her first tour in Sweden.
Ms. Clark captured the $10,000 Oxnard Gold Medal Award at the American Traditions Competition for vocalists at the Savannah Music Festival, the first jazz vocalist ever to win the Gold Medal in the fourteen-year history of the competition, and the Billie Holliday Vocal Competition in Baltimore, MD, earning a prize of $2,500 and an opportunity to perform with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (2007). Martin Shram of Washingtonian Magazine says, Ms. Clark “may be the finest jazz singer in the [Washington] area.”
Ms. Clark performs regularly throughout the Washington metropolitan areas. Local venues have included Blues Alley, One Step Down, the Kennedy Center, The Lincoln Theater, the Smithsonian Jazz Café and Twins Jazz. She appears regularly at the Empress Lounge in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Washington, DC, and at Laporta’s Jazz Restaurant, Alexandria, Virginia.
