Five artists put their vocals to the test Tuesday night for a chance to work with Grammy nominated singer Raheem DeVaughn and to be crowned Baltimore’s “Voice of the City”. The competition, sponsored by DTLR Radio and Rémy Martin® V, was held at Oxygen Lounge and featured four industry savvy judges including DeVaughn and Marcy Crump of Fly Wire Magazine. To kick off the night singers Santino Rose, Ty Summer, Opal Rose, and Megan Marie all performed a pre-recorded song of their choice. After awaiting deliberation by the judges, each artist was eliminated one by one until only two remained. A tie between singers Ty Summer and Santino Rose resulted in an ocapella “sing-off”, but in the end Santino Rose of 4Ever Young Music Group took the title home.
DTLR Radio and Rémy Martin® V definitely set a tone of sophistication for the event with plush leather VIP seating, red carpet photography upon entry, and Remy Martin bottles decorated throughout the club. Cocktail beauties served free shots of Remy Martin specialty drinks and a free hot buffet was available for the audience to enjoy. Jay Claxton emceed and kept the audience entertained while DJ Angel Baby served it up on the ones and twos. Tiara Laniece held down the live broadcast for DTLR Radio and interviewed taste makers attending the event, in which there were many. Everyone was dressed to impress and the night ended witheveryone rocking out to hot new hip hop and R&B on the dance floor.
Santino Rose will be featured in round two of the “Voices of the City” series to be held in Washington D.C. on March 10, 2014. Congrats to him and all of the contestants!
