Chicago Shines In Submissions To NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest
Written by Vocalo Radio on April 27, 2020
Quinn Christopherson, Naia Izumi and Fantastic Negrito are just a few of the artists who’ve launched historic, and in some cases Grammy-winning, careers after winning NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest.
This year several of our our friends and #InRotation artists are entering the contest, and we knew we needed to highlight some of the incredible submission videos that our community has been creating.
We were overjoyed, but not surprised, that these artists transcended the difficulties of an uncertain time — creating strong, stunning and unique submission videos.
Check out these dope submissions from our “In Rotation” artists, we’ll be rooting for them to rep Chicago!
