2020-21 National Anthem auditions

The Utah Jazz is looking for talented vocalists and instrumentalists to perform the National Anthem for the 2020-2021 NBA Season.

To be considered, please submit a Facebook, YouTube or video link of your National Anthem performance via email to ashley.kelson@utahjazz.com

At this time, we are only accepting soloist submissions due to Covid-19 restrictions.

All participants submitting a video will be notified by email whether they have been invited to perform the National Anthem.

Please consider the following when auditioning:

The Utah Jazz require that the National Anthem be sung a cappella and in a traditional manner. Please sing the anthem with the utmost respect and honor for what the song stands for. If selected, the performer must sing the same version at his/her scheduled game in the same manner as the audition video. Professional attire is required.

For more information, please contact Ashley Kelson at (801) 325-2596 or email ashley.kelson@utahjazz.com.

Thank you for sharing your talents with our fans.
