Award-winning soul singer Jamila Ford will be performing this Saturday, June 18 at the Vroman’s Jazz Stage as part of the Make Music Pasadena festival!

From her website:

“Ford has always had a knack for pinpointing emotions that well from her personal experiences – the struggle for self realization, the search for inner strength and independence, the joy of love, the pain and confusion of rejection, and the acceptance of all of our imperfections. Ford has found her voice again. She has channeled her struggles into a bluesy, folksy, and funky song cycle, reminiscent of the work of Norah Jones, Nikka Costa, and Tracy Chapman.”

Stop by the Vroman’s Jazz Stage at 4 pm to catch Jamila’s performance! For more information about Jamila Ford, visit her website by clicking here. To listen to samples of her music, click here to visit her Myspace page.
