AMHERST — On April 5, the University of Massachusetts Amherst Programming Council hosted the annual UMass Got Talent competition in Bartlett Hall. The event featured multiple bands like Raspberry Jam, dance acts like the group Jazba, rappers like Chris Focus and Walt Arkain, and guitarists like Angelo Cerbone.
Jazba took home second place, with their blend of South Asian and American dance styles, and will be performing at the UMass Sammy awards April 25. UMass junior Samantha Kay took first place, singing a combination of Beyonce covers and her own original songs.
I sat down with Kay to discuss her victory ahead of her UMass Spring concert performance on April 28.
