Jennie breathes new life into the diverse musical styles she grew up with and loves so well, from Soul, R&B, Jazz, 90’s HipHop, Black Gospel, Funk, to Folk and Blues. Blessed with an outstanding voice and a natural gift for song- writing.
She’s is a distinctively emotive artist, combining timeless music with her own contemporary twist, constantly walking the line between pain and hope.
“My mission in life is to spread love, healing, empowerment and joy through words and music. I wanna sing with my heart, make a connection and tell a story through my body and voice... stories about about universal love, pain, loneliness, struggle, consolation, life & death, humanity, things we all deal with.”
