The Vocal Program at Musicians Institute is pleased to announce talented, multi-stylistic vocalist Jamice Jefferson as the winner of the first-ever W. Crane Guy Memorial Vocal Scholarship. In winning this prestigious award Jamice, (who hails from Compton, CA) demonstrated her overall outstanding musicianship, strong vocal skills and the potential for developing her own unique voice.
Asked why she chose to study in the Vocal Program at MI, Jamice states “I feel that MI really pushes people to better themselves not only musically, but as a professional. I hope to learn everything I can from this school.”
During her studies at MI, she wants to focus on “strengthening my voice, and how to use it properly, feeling comfortable on stage as a performer, learning more about the music business side and networking.” She added, “going to this school is literally a dream come true for me and I am blessed to have this opportunity.”
As she pursues her future professional dreams of eventually becoming an internationally known performer and music mogul, Jamice also expresses her conviction that she is “an avid believer that education and music saves lives and I want to promote that message.”
Everyone at MI congratulates Jamice on winning this prestigious award that honors the memory and multiple talents of Musicians Institute alumnus W. Crane Guy (class of 2010); and supports the education of a talented vocal student.
Special heartfelt thanks to the family of W. Crane Guy for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which will help to provide students like Jamice with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
