Twice a year, international recording artist turned vocal coach Samantha Cole produces the Celebrity Voice Coach Platform Showcase. Every showcase features 20 of Samantha’s students performing originals and covers, backed by a live band. Aspiring singers from all over the tri-state area work with Samantha to fulfill the dream to sing at the top of their game. Past Showcase co-hosts have included legendary music manager Ramon Hervey (Vanessa Williams, Boys 2 men Babyface), Voice coach to the stars Professor Bill Riley, music producer Jimmy Greco, DJ Chef Marc Weiss and Emmy-nominated choreographer, Brian Thomas. The mission and goal of the Platform Showcase is to give students the real-life experience of performing in a live show, to showcase their talent in front of live audience and in a professional show setting. Students also gain insider experience in marketing and promoting their own show. Samantha works with professional lighting designers, stagers, and sound engineers to create an unforgettable experience for the performers and the audience.
