""Look Out For Jakia""

Craig's Music Blog: July 25th, 2007:

"Look Out For Jakia"

Hey everyone I wanted to take the time to introduce a very hard working up and coming Pop singer named Jakia to you! She is a very hard working Singer/Song writter from Dallas Texas, with a lot of personality. She enjoys every kind of music that she can connect with in one way or another. It was that spirit that brought her to be a background vocalist to Local Dallas singer, Mahogany.

Jakia is also not your typical Pop indie artist, she has done writting of all types of music from Urban, R&B to Country. She is very hands on with the production of her songs, image and upcoming self-released album. I would say her style is unique because she has the ability to write, produce and is also very pasionate about her dancing performances. Just after speaking with her from time to time her drive shines through as a hard working individual aspiring to be, and in someways broken into the business as the talented singer that she is.

Most Recently she is gearing up to release her new single, "Extra, Extra" and share her new web site with as many people as possible (www.jakiaonline.com)

I would like to share Jakia's "Extra, Extra" single and video with all of you!!

Bio

When you get a taste of Jakia there’s no doubt you’ll taste the sugary goodness--but you’ll never get the sugar without the spice! She’s easily the girl next door at first glance, beautiful, warm-hearted, with a charming smile that would make any man want to take her home to Mama. On stage she transforms into a powerhouse. Her presence is cunning, her movements are precise, her body--strong, and her voice--pure. It’s what makes Jakia a force to be reckoned with in an industry flooded with one-dimensional artists. She is a 3-fold entertainer in a time when her kind come few and far in between.

Jakia has etched her own artistic niche into the candy-coated world of pop. Her voice, soft and strong all at once, is canvassed onto energetic tracks with hard-hitting beats that keep the club thumping and the B-boys breaking. There is a hint of an eclectic thread sewn into her sound that makes her sound so universal, so elastic. It is the element of fun, flirtatiousness and inventive personality.

Growing up between the West Coast and Texas, Jakia was always surrounded by music. “My mom sings and as long as I could remember, we were always singing,” she says of her childhood. She absolutely fell in love with the stage in junior high school when she joined the choir, but Jakia was deeply moved make a career of her own talents after witnessing Lauryn Hill live in concert. “It was the connection she had with her audience that inspired me”, she remarks of the experience.

Since then Jakia has been developing her own connection to the world through her music. She worked her way through school at the University of North Texas and honed her skills, immersing herself in both the art of music and the business behind it. She sang back-up on tour with Neo-Soul/R&B singer Mahogany and then proved her versatility as an artist when she teamed up with folk-rock singer Dave Yaden for a country music project titled “It’s the Way”.

For her latest project “Extra Extra” Jakia collaborated with Grammy Award winning producer Madukwu Chinwah, Erykah Badu f. Common) and his work with Erykah Badu and Soul singer N’Dambi.

What has emerged from the fusion of Jakia’s self-intensive training and her passion for music is what the world knows her to be today, a truly talented vocalist, a skilled hip-hop dancer, and the new fresh face of pop/club music. Jakia is what’s next! Keep dancing, keep watching.
