Be A Light In The World. “B True 2 U” J’Rose
Singer /songwriter, performer J’Rose, is a young musical talent who exhibits a soulful, raspy tone and unique ability to connect with her audience. She possesses an authentic spirit, humble nature, and an infectious personality which makes her unstoppable. At four years of age, J’Rose would perform for anyone who visited her family’s home, singing Shirley Temple tunes and bowing after every performance with a deep dimpled smile. By the following year, she was performing in school talent shows and by age 8 she actually wrote her first original called “Heart Song”. This song was dedicated to foster children who were longing to be adopted and have a family of their own. Her first performance was for a children’s charity event and after singing “Heart Song” to an audience who held up their lit up cell phones; she knew the stage was where she belonged.
At about 9 years of age, J’Rose noticed kids at school being bullied, especially one little boy and decided to write a song called “Mean Kids” to help empower kids. She worked with a music producer and the song was made into a music video that has played in schools around LA, New York and even as far away as Japan.
Only a year later, J’Rose was already busy in a studio recording new songs. She was asked to sing one of her originals entitled, “From My Heart” at a fund raiser for the victims of Japan after the massive earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011.
J’Rose also auditioned and became a cast member of a show at CBS Studios that was put on by actress, Dyan Cannon. The show ran 10 months through 2012 and gave way to opportunities to sing, dance and act. In a competition during the show at CBS, J’Rose won first place for performance/song and first place for acting.
From there she joined in on school tours with Chasing Your Dream Tour and Peace Thru Music Tour.
“I loved singing to the kids and spending time with them after the shows. It was fun giving autographs, and I always encouraged them to be true to themselves and to believe in their dreams.”
Mario and Friends was the first radio show that interviewed J’Rose when she was just 8 years old. After that, she was approached by other Radio stations for interviews and to play her music. Her songs have played on KOCI Radio 101.5 FM, 2RDJ-FM, Triple H FM, 1 Radio Future Stars, Night Flight Radio, Unsigned Fresh Air Radio, Baja Artists, and Tween Pop Radio.

In addition to her musical activities, J’Rose is an active advocate for foster children starting her own charity called “Cuddly Bags” in 2011. She wanted to bring comfort and supplies to hurting children who were suddenly taken out of their home and put into foster care. The bags are stuffed with things like journals, pens, crayons, coloring books, small toys, brushes, toothbrush, toothpaste, hair clips, bath soap and every bag has a beanie baby with a hand written note that says “Please name me, care for me and be my friend” which hangs from the little animals paw. J’Rose continues to give her bags out to Foster Care Agencies and is also now making “Christmas Cuddly Bags” for kids in homeless shelters in her community. J’Rose was contacted by Gavin Keilly, who puts on the American Music Awards Gifting Suite and invited her to share her Cuddly Bags with the celebrities. She had the great honor of meeting and singing to Chaka Kahn.
“I was so happy she wanted me to sing to her and I couldn’t believe she was crying as I sang,” said J’Rose “and when she hugged me after I sang, she said she wanted to one day do a duet with me.”
J’Rose has been honored to sing at events at the LA Convention Center, Malibu Inn, House of Blues in West Hollywood and San Diego, Whisky a Go Go, Los Globos, Poppy Festival, and Jethawks Stadium, where she sang the National Anthem. J’Rose continues to sing her songs of inspiration and encouragement at numerous charity events for Tunes for Tots, Make a Wish Foundation, Penny Lane Foster Care and Adoption Services, Inner Circle Foster Care Agency, Sing for Literacy Program, Kierrah Foundation for foster youth and a yearly Butterfly Release Memorial for people whose loved ones have died.
After writing her 19th song, “Wilted Rose”, J’Rose was invited to sing in Malibu. This paved the way for some incredible new opportunities. She opened for The English Beat, did some voice over work, and “Wilted Rose” was acknowledged by the Malibu Music Awards. In addition, she was also chosen to sing at their yearly festival and awards show at the Smothers Theatre. J’Rose was thrilled when she won “2013 Best Teen Artist” Award at the prestigious Malibu Music Awards this past October.
