Spring 2020
Let music lift you! 

On March 23, 2020 Bray Studio alum singer Michael Williams advanced after the 1st Battle Round of NBC's The Voice!  The song was Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know." After his duet partner on the Team Jonas performance was chosen as winner of the battle, Michael was immediately saved by his team captain Nick Jonas. We continue to cheer Michael Williams on and wish him all the best in the show competition! Watch Michael's duet performance: Left.

Congratulations to Bray Studio alum DuVall Jones and New York University Tish School of the Arts a cappella group N’Harmonics, winners of the 2019 International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA)! DuVall Jones, NYU Freshman majoring in Musical Theatre, was a featured soloist in their performance that awarded them the distinctive honor and NYU’s first win in the university’s history. They also won special awards for Outstanding Arrangement and Outstanding Choreography. As ICCA Champions they received The Gooding Cup. This is THE a cappella trophy, hand-crafted by the maker of the Grammy Awards. Every champion group since 1996 has its name engraved on the Gooding Cups, a symbol of innovation and excellence in a cappella.
