- "Afro Blue returned to the stage to perform “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me” with the song’s author, Smokey Robinson himself, on lead vocals. I mean, really, who needs to win a silly competition when Smokey Robinson elects to sing with you on live national television?”
- "Afro Blue is a smaller group and uses handheld mikes to create a smooth, polished, staid-ready sound - with beatboxing as well as straight vocalism given the effect, at times, of a full instrumental accompaniment."
- "Afro Blue’s performances of “Swing Low, Swing Chariot,” “Motherless Child” and “Ain’-a-That good News!” in modern, sophisticated arrangements were dazzling, and the comparison of thematic impulses and resonances was illuminating."
- “Other artists have been able ambassadors of D.C. Jazz over the years, but the unique televisual atmosphere of 2011 - with its endless network Sing-Offs - allows Afro Blue to capture an especially large number of hearts and minds."
