Who Is J'Lee?
Country-soul singer and songwriter J'Lee enlivens country music's traditions with a dynamic contemporary verve. And infuses it all with a deep soulfulness found in her rich soaring voice and the catchy, picturesque songs she writes.
From an early age, she wanted to know what she could do to touch the people of the world in a positive way. J’Lee often tells the story of how she would rejoice with others in church for knowing their life propose. Although happy for them, still she’d inquire of God the same question as always, “but God what am I supposed to do?” She said, “Although I was a child it was very important to me to know my call in life.” It seems forever but finally she had her answer. It was to sing and write music. This was the beginning of what she calls her lifelong learning journey. “And what a journey it has been she says.”
She has grown much since her extreme bashful years. J’Lee says, “It was the church people who helped bring me out of my shyness. They would often call on me to testify or sing. I would be so terrified it felt like my heart was beating in my throat.” But all the while God was helping her to overcome one of life’s greatest obstacles - fear. Let just say J’Lee has come a long way since then.
J'Lee says we all have goals in life but remember, "It's not the destination that teaches us our much needed lessons in life, building character while making us strong it’s the journey."."

"J’Lee, is such a talented individual. When I met her in Nashville, for the first time I knew there was something unique about her. I feel in my heart that God has special plans for her life. He has given her such a beautiful voice and I know (without a doubt) her songs were sent directly from heaven – first class. It wouldn’t surprise me if ‘Gabriel’ delivered them himself. Of course, knowing ‘J’Lee’ she’s too humble to admit it."
