Born and raised in the city that birthed a unique sound, diverse culture, and many nationally-recognized talents, JaeRene was the epitome of Houston. The singer made her mark on the music scene in major way, foreseeing what would have been to come if her life wasn’t cut so shortly and so suddenly. She was no stranger to the stage as she won a plethora of local and national beauty pageants since the age of four. Her personality, talent, and tenacity led her to perform at festivals, sporting events, concerts, and and number of social events.
Her diverse sound was featured on one of Houston’s most requested songs, “H-Town For Real (Remix),” which featured artists such as Paul Wall, Lil’ Flip, Kiotti, Trilly Polk, Z-Ro, and various other Houston-based artists. In addition to singing, JaeRene also wrote her own music, which was often inspired by real-life situations. She was formerly a host of Kidz Jams on 953 Jamz, where she encouraged teens to live out their dreams. Her community was something she loved, so she often hosted “Baddie Bootcamps,” where she promoted self-esteem, body-positive images, and confidence to young girls ages 5-18.
