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.
