Shepherd University alumna Carolyn Malachi will return to campus to perform in a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 1 in the Storer Ballroom of the Shepherd student center.

Malachi's approach to music combines jazz, hip-hop and spoken word. Dubbed "sweet songstress" by BET, the independent, Grammy-nominated artist and great-granddaughter of pianist John Malachi counts YasiinBey (formerly MosDef), Radiohead and Sarah Vaughan among her great influences.

"We're really excited to have Carolyn back," Christana Johnson, assistant vice president for student affairs, stated in a release. "She was very involved with the Multicultural Student Affairs office, including being a member of the Multicultural Leadership Team, a group of students that promotes diversity and advocates for social justice both on and off campus."

The concert kicks off Multicultural Student Affair's Black History Month celebration.

"While Carolyn was a student here she helped to plan and implement MSA's cultural celebrations. It feels like we've come full circle to feature her in our Black History Month celebration," Johnson said.

Malachi is a 2006 graduate of Shepherd.
