Tenor

Joy Buchi-Ahiabuike is a freshman from Gadsden, Alabama (don’t fear - many people from Alabama don’t know where that is either). She’s loved music all her life, and gives special credit for that to the dozens of nostalgic childhood theme songs she has playing nonstop around in her head. Outside of class, you can find her listening to lofi, taking photos and videos of people/places/things, reading Webtoon, or laughing at something. She plans to major in biology on the pre-med track, and is more than excited to make amazing music and equally amazing memories with SBSB!

Mezzo 

Ana is a junior from Florida. She has been making random noises since she was little and is alright musically, so figured she should give college a capella a try. This has been the best decision she has made in her time at Duke so far. In her free time, Ana can be found walking around the gardens, deciding whether or not to apply to med school, or procrastinating work by finding a new form of exercise to try. She was classically trained in violin as a youngin and taught herself how to play the guitar during quarantine. Her biggest musical influences are Queen, Alicia Keys, and Norah Jones.

Eka Ebong is a junior from Harrisburg, North Carolina. She’s always had a thing for music ever since she was 3, when she wrote her first song. Since then she has gone on to sing in choir and perform in musicals and plays. When she’s not singing, you could probably find her reading, playing piano, dancing, or teaching acting to her students. She thoroughly enjoys talking about Ed Sheeran, any musical on Broadway, the benefits of nugget ice, the scent of tires and the superiority of Gain over other laundry detergents.  Eka is currently studying Electrical and Computer Engineering with a minor in Computer Science. She’s very excited to be a member of SBSB and continue doing what she loves while glorifying God.

Whenever Harris is not watching movies, he is discussing how to reform the way we teach STEM, debating about politics of Hong Kong and China, solving physics problems, playing ping pong, or cooking Southeast Chinese dishes. In this sense, music comes last on Harris's list of priorities, to the extent that he is a full blown audiophile with a Klipsch stereo setup dreaming about building his own pair of speakers.

Alto

Jessica Zhong is a sophomore from Cary, North Carolina. She has actually lived in the same 15-mile-radius circle her entire life, yet still needs a GPS to get pretty much anywhere. As a newbie to the a cappella scene, she owes her love of singing to her classical music background (namely, many many hours spent playing violin and piano). She has also dabbled in assorted athletics such as cheerleading, TaeKwonDo, and mountain biking, but is at best very mediocre at all of them. In her free time, Jessica loves playing card and board games, eating fruit, and hugging her friends’ stuffed animals. Though in an ideal world she would have seven minors and no major, she will most likely be overcoming her indecisiveness with a double major in economics and psychology and a minor in music.
