Aliza Grant has been singing since the womb. Bringing some much needed height to the alto section at a whopping 5 foot 11, Aliza’s jazzy voice will tower over you and subsequently knock you off your feet. And now that she’s conquered her fear of singing in front of the always large Jewish a cappella crowds in the Maryland suburbs, Aliza is more than ready to show off her skills to her entire hometown of Chi-CAH-go when the group goes on tour this spring!
