Jerome Collins was born to sing and perform. But the Allentown native always gets nervous when he has to return to the Keystone state to showcase his talent.
“To me performing at home is the most stressful. We’ve done Detroit, Chicago and very large theaters but I get nervous performing at home because I want to perform so well and do my best,” said Collins. “But when I’m on stage it all vanishes. Performing is the only chance I get to let loose and get into a different zone.”
Collins, along with 9 of his collegiate “brothers’ that has become Straight No Chaser will be performing their unique brand of a cappella music at the Benedum Center on December 11 for a holiday-themed concert that is sure to please.
“We’re going to be performing some of the new songs that we released and some new Christmas songs and classic songs that people know us for.” said Collins who sings second tenor in the group and is one of its original members.
