Akeylah Simone

Wednesday, February 15, 2023

Akeylah Simone delivers a stunning performance by fusing genres from Rock, Hip Hop, R&B, Pop & Jazz in an eclectic set of original music.  Her sultry, soulful vocals keep you enthralled. 

A native of Hampton Roads, Akeylah is just getting her feet wet as a singer, songwriter, and now recording artist. In just her first two years of releasing original music, she’s landed 4 songs on the Grammy Ballot and was voted   Encore’s 2021 Best Solo Artist. She was most recently voted the International Singer Songwriter Associations’ 2022 Female Rising Star. She’s also had    numerous nominations across various publications including Best New Artist (Soul Tracks Reader’s Choice Awards,) and Song of the Year & Best R&B/ Soul (Veer Awards). 

Akeylah has been singing and performing since her first time on stage at an elementary school talent contest, and frequenting many stages with her dad, Bobby Blackhat, over the past 10 years. She has spent this past year focusing on performing her own original music. Don’t miss this stellar talent!

Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Proceeds benefit the museum.

Doors open at 5:30 pm. Seating is first-come, first-served.
