Singer Shacara Rogers came up through Howard University’s music program, making her mark as a member of the signature vocal ensemble: Afro-Blue. She’s often recruited by bandleaders like Michael Bowie or Elijah Jamal Balbed for her versatility, able to sink into a ballad like Betty Carter or groove over the woozy sung hip-hop and R&B mix that dominates radio stations like WHUR or WPGC. She often leans into the latter sound as a bandleader but puts her full range of vocal abilities on for Valentine’s Day in the cozy Hill Center.
