Singers Showcase features some of Berklee’s finest vocalists performing songs by Elvis Presley, including: "Hound Dog," "Can’t Help Falling in Love," "A Little Less Conversation," "How Great Thou Art," "Hurt," "Love Me Tender," "All Shook Up," "That’s All Right, Mama," and more. 

The night will include vocals by Berklee’s award-winning a cappella group Pitch Slapped, 10 of Berklee's student vocalists, and dancers from Boston Conservatory at Berklee. 

During this week, Elvis Legacy Week, BerkleeICE will partner with American Crew and Elvis Presley Enterprises to host a series of events exploring Elvis’s brand, his sound, style, and legacy. Events will feature Elvis’s friends, Graceland archivists, a top Elvis biographer, documentarians, and the many brands that have worked with Elvis in the 40 years since his passing.

Approximately 120 to 130 student vocalists audition each year for the chance to earn a coveted spot in Singers Showcase, a concert that has been held for 33 years. In the audition, each singer is given two minutes to impress a panel of judges with just an acoustic guitar or piano accompanying them.
