Imagine Destiny's Child with their Southern soul roots traded for sharp Nuyorican style and you'll have a sense of this talented young N.Y. singer. Proof positive that it's still possible to cross island vibe and hip-hop spirit without resorting to reggae

Bio

With a richly textured voice that stands out from the crowd, Janid and her natural ability to weave 7 voice harmonies into smooth sultry vocal arrangements commands the respect of her critics, peers and fans. Evoking the likes of Lisa Lisa and Taylor Dayne, Janids uniquely powerful yet controlled voice combined with a seductively exotic beauty, the sweet charm of the girl next door and the explosive stage presence that often eludes even the seasoned veteran is quickly positioning this young diva to be the Future Queen of Latin Urban Music.

Born in New York City, Puerto Rican singer Janid first moved to the Island of Enchantment when she was just a baby. As a child, she showed an early passion for the arts taking ballet, piano, jazz, belly dancing, modeling and singing lessons. This passion was reinforced by an equally artistic family composed primarily of musicians.

However, Janids impressive vocal abilities and her love for Hip-Hop and R&B
soon became evident. By the age of 5 she had written her first song and her journey as an entertainer had begun. In school she was a soprano in her
school choir and as an adult sang in a gospel choir.

Since then, Janid has made appearances in TV commercials, singing in
jingles, radio station IDs and co-writing demos for major label artists. It
was while working on one of these demos in 2003, that she met producer Kaydean. Impressed with her soulful voice, seven-octave range and their
great chemistry as a team, Kaydean immediately started working with Janid.
This led to the formation of theLatin Hip-Hop and R&B group, Mente Urbana where she was the lead singer. Since leaving the group, Janids songs have been featured in the Puerto Rican mini-series El Ultimo Caso del Detective Prado.

Janid is currently finishing Goddess, and with this much anticipated debut
album, it is clear she is headed to superstardom. In Goddess, Janid tells a
story throughout the album, taking listeners on a journey through her
struggles, heartaches, disappointments and spiritual growth. The talented
songwriters fresh and unique style is evident as she delivers her lyrics with a unique style and trademark flow which fans praise as almost rapping.

Produced in its entirety by Kaydean, Goddess tracks manage to have a different sound while maintaining a genuine urban feel and east-coast flavor. Tracks like Cant Go On, touch on domestic violence and convey deep emotions as Janid sings /Im sick and tired of spending my time around being insulted/Im sick and tired of being put down by you my pride abducted/ and on Playin You, she reverts to the role of the typical male player as a means to seek revenge from a partner who neglects her as she belts /when Im out there on the street you will see me always talking and flirting/a lesson you’re learning not to be treating me like Im nothing./ All vocals in Goddess are sung by Janid and one of the most impressive tracks is Born Again, where she recreates an entire gospel choir.

Goddess showcases Janids gifted voice and versatility in a number of settings including high energy club bangers, steamy R&B ballads and Latin urban, while brilliantly capturing her essence, spirit and Boricua heart. When combined with nontraditional, edgy lyrics and Janids amazing ability to transform back and froth from street smart cat, to a sexy and feminine temptress, theres no doubt Goddess will have its listeners worshipping the ground she walks on.
