Growing up in a small town in Southern Indiana, singing and dancing came naturally to Sara. Music was always a part of her. “Singing, to me, is like walking... it just is part of me.” Sara’s grandmother was a music teacher, playing piano, organ, and accordion, and would spend hours singing with her, sharing great songs of many eras. Sara’s grandparents met singing on the radio together.

At eight years old, Sara was singing to Judy Garland records, dreaming of inspiring people with her love for tender lyrics and melodies, in writing them or performing classic standards. Sara sings many styles of music: Jazz, Country, Gospel, Soul, Classical, Pop Standards, Adult Contemporary, and Children's lullabies. Sara has a great understanding of what the “heart of a song” truly means because she sings from her heart.

Sara recently recorded with the great Irv Williams from Minnesota. Irv was so impressed with Sara, that at 96 years old, he came out to record on her original Jazz song, “Coffee Talk,” released in 2017.

Just prior to “Coffee Talk,” Sara collaborated with the talented Ricky and Billy Peterson from Minnesota to release two new Jazz singles, “A House Is Not A Home” and “Feeling good”, available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music, and E-Music. Her version of “A House Is Not A Home” was also recently released as a music video on YouTube. Sara has also played and recorded with renown Jazz pianist Bradley Williams of Chicago.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
