We’re delighted to announce that Samantha Creighton will be joining our Video Judging Team for AUSACA Australian A Cappella Championship 2016!
Samantha is a graduate of Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, where she held membership in the award winning a cappella group – The Nor’easters. During her membership, the group was named both SoJamX Champions and ICCA (International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella) Champions in 2013, and 2015 ICCA Wildcard Champions (see video below).
Samantha managed to earn outstanding solo awards, both on stage at ICCA events and for the CARAs (Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards). Most recently, Samantha was featured on Australia TV on Foxtel and Netflix during the series ‘Sing It On‘, which followed the aforementioned Nor’easters through their journey to ICCA Finals in New York City.
She is currently living in Los Angeles, pursuing her passion for a cappella music. You can find her on stage with vocal band Musae, which features past competitors of “The Sing Off”, cast of “Pitch Perfect 2” and award winning a cappella producers.
Samantha is honoured and excited to be a part of this wonderful experience with Vocal Australia!
Samantha will be judging the video entries for one of the AUSACA divisions (either School, University or League) but you’ll have to wait to find out if it’s your division!
