WILSON, N.C. — September 10, 2019 — “Jazz It Up,” featuring the smooth harmony of the Stellar Singers backed by the big band sound of the fabulous Starlight Dance Band promises to be a “must-see” performance for those attending the fifth annual benefit concert for the Jonathon Scott Bennett Scholarship Endowment.
