About Samara Joy
Savannah Music Festival fans are already well aware of Samara Joy’s masterful jazz vocals from her performances at the 2022 festival, and at only 24 years old, Joy is already well on her way to becoming a household name. Samara Joy leapt into the national spotlight when her album Linger Awhile garnered her the Best New Artist and Best Jazz Vocal Album awards at the 2023 GRAMMY Awards. In more recent news, Samara Joy took home the 2024 GRAMMY Award for Best Jazz Performance.


This season’s Spring Fling benefit party is inspired by the cover of Samara Joy’s GRAMMY-award winning album, Linger Awhile. Guests are encouraged to dress to impress in their best Linger Awhile-inspired cocktail attire.
