Anitra Jay

A Tour of Black Voices in History

Walk with Singer/Songwriter Anitra Jay through an entertaining showcase of black voices in American History. Anitra takes you back in time celebrating diversity in our nation's rich history with art forms such as the breath-taking poetry of Maya Angelou and Langston Hughes to the stories of Harriet Tubman as well as modern historical voices like Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald. Students will experience a memorable show that both informs and inspires while celebrating the beauty of diversity.

Anitra Jay is an acoustic soul singer-songwriter based in Houston, TX. With a recent musical feature on HGTV's Tiny House Hunters, Anitra Jay presents a whimsically soulful all-caution-to-the-wind interpretation of music. Born and raised in New Orleans, Anitra's vocals highlight her roots in Jazz, Soul, and Gospel. With a musical style often compared to India.Arie and Chrisette Michele, Anitra Jay offers a sweet down-to-earth blend of soul and poetry with modern sensibilities.

Her personality and expert improvisational skills set her performances square between the raw edge of improv comedy and sultry soaked soul. She effortlessly combines soul-catching melodies with tales of real life experiences wrought with motivational messages that leave the listener entertained, inspired, and ready to take on the world. She is currently working on her fourth album, a whimsical take on life called "Work in Progress."

I just wanted to thank you for your help in coordinating the Anitra Jay event here at Monmouth and for putting her on our radar! Karen and I both thought it was such an excellent performance, and it's encouraged us to use more spaces on campus and have more live performers post-Covid.  - Cullen Marshall '22, Coordinator for Campus Events and Student Engagement, Monmouth College, Monmouth, IL

Our time with Anitra was wonderful. She arrived early on Friday.  I think she really enjoyed being able to speak and to sing in Connections. She talked about purpose and did her original music in Connections. The students enjoyed hearing from her. She was genuine and her words were timely.  Louisa Monroe, Associate Minister, Buies Creek, NC Campbell University

Anitra was LOVELY to work with! She arrived on time, setup/clean up was a breeze, and everyone really enjoyed her. We had requests to bring her back in the spring from several students as well as faculty/staff. Taylor Williams, Director of Student Involvement, Tennessee Wesleyan University, Athens, TN

Anitra Jay performance for our Welcome Back Event was again, very positive and extremely well received by the students.  I am sure we will ask her back again next year. She is so easy to work with and so flexible and accommodating for our campus.  She always stays late, taking the time to speak with the students.  Thanks again Wally, we always enjoy working with you.  Michael Deen, Dean of Students, Austin College, Sherman, TX 

The event was a success. She was amazing. Would love to work with her again. - Wilma Jackson, Director of Multicultural Affairs, Doane College – Crete, NE

Anitra was very enjoyable as the students both her singing and her poetry. The students seemed to enjoy her performance and stayed to speak with her after the show.  She arrived on time and was a doll to work with, very sweet. Thanks for being so flexible and understand about the check.  Luanne Burns, Coordinator of Student Activities, Wake Technical Community College, Raleigh, NC
