City Slang: Jill Jack to Perform at the Music Foundation May fundraiser



Local singer/songwriter Jill Jack will perform on May 31 as part of the Music Foundation: LIVE at The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music series.

According to a press release, “Jack will perform at the 1109 S. Washington Ave. location in Royal Oak. Monthly shows in the LIVE at The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music series raise funds for music education and equipment for local children in need. Tickets for the event are $25 in advance or $30 at the door and can be purchased at
Jill Jack’s magical connection to her audience is the result of her generous artistry. By combining her gifts as a conceptual visionary with a warm gathering of musical influences, Jill touches that secret heart of ours with her melodies and lyrics. In her hometown of Detroit, Jill needs no further explanation. She’s been lauded in equal measure to her talent -- since 1997 she has won 33 Detroit Music Awards in all categories that apply to a singer-songwriter. Much of this local success is due to her charming stage presence and emotive songwriting. It’s simply called connecting and it’s the bounty of a true songwriter open to all of life -- her own defeats, victories, hopes dashed, dreams fulfilled, her muse, her loneliness, her misplaced love and her romantic successes.
