Oberlin College Black Musicians Guild presents Callie Day in concert. She will be singing negro spirituals and gospel songs.

Day has performed with the Miami University Opera, the Cincinnati Opera, the Bowling Green State Opera, and in recent years , as a touring member of the American Spiritual Ensemble. She has traveled extensively performing across the nation, in Europe and Central America.

Recently, Day has taken social media by storm as fans all over the United States have captured her amazing voice in videos that have almost instantly gone viral! Even before then, many had already witnessed her gifts in schools and churches where she's taught and served, and especially in her local Walmart, where she was featured as the "Singing Pharmacy Tech" on several commercial videos.

In August 2016, Callie released her first single, Hear My Prayer, a Moses Hogan composition arranged by Day, Lan Wilson, G. LeRon Rainey, and Mark Lacy. 

Callie received an associate degree in vocal performance from Sinclair Community College, a  bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from Bowling Green State University, and a master's in education with a music concentration from University of Dayton.

Callie is also currently a candidate for the Master of Fine Arts (Miami University, OH) and Doctor of Music  (University of Kentucky). Her doctoral project is “Exploring the Role of African American Opera Singers In the Establishment of the Spiritual as a Musicial Art Form from 1900 to 1920.’’
