Feature Fridays: Jade, Peaks & Vallys

Click to Follow Jade
Atlanta has afforded me some incredible relationships! Some through business, others through pleasure, and a few are genius enough to be considered through both. When I met Jade or GlamJadeOcelyn (as I call her because I can be very extra at times) we were singing background for a few artists (including Kandi) in one of Victor Jackson's Glam Rock Soul shows. I remember thinking, wow.. she's so small! Then I heard that soprano voice and another wow came. It was wow... its sooo beautiful! I think I raved to Victor in our meeting for like 20 min about how I just was so in love with her voice.

Come to find out Jade(ocelyn) is so many things to love! She's not only a talented singer, but songwriter, dancer, and really just a gem of a person over all. Ive had the honor of sharing the stage, experiences, frustrations, laughs with her in a very short time, and I couldnt have asked for a better companion to do that with in those moments. Amongst the other bazillion things that Jade does, she's currently working on a book of poetry called, Peaks and Valleys. Jade describes her book as: "a poetic journey of love, heartbreak, and self reflection. It begs the reader to believe in love and as a result believe in themselves. I want to force people to be uncomfortable because they will have to identify with the images of love and heartbreak. Every poem will feel like a a very distinct moment along their own personal journey. It speaks to everyone who has been in love and has lacked self-love."  AKA its gonna be goooood! lol

Jade says that the book is in the review/editing process right now, but should be available by the top of next year. Trust.. Ive read a couple of them and umm.. yea, def some crazy insight & just lyrically they are beautiful! So make sure to follow Jade & be on the look out for the book!
