Inverurie artist, Jenna J has fought hard to be in a position to take the music world by storm, and now seeks local dancers to help take her performances to a new level.

With consistent hard work, and never faltering from her dream to be a star, it might never have been for Jenna J Cameron who as a ten-year-old, was diagnosed with liver cancer, with only three months to live. After seven months of chemotherapy and the removal of three-quarters of her liver, 12 years on, Jenna J is “still here” and fighting to fulfil her career.

She said: “There is no other option for me - this is what I believe I’m here to do. I have been back to London three times now and have completed three songs towards my demo which will be put forward to all major record labels.

“Last time in London I had a vocal lesson with David Grant (from Fame Academy). He was very impressed, if not shocked at how much I have done off my own back without help from management or agents, and that in Aberdeen, where there is little opportunity for young people in music. He said to my mum “If she was in London, she would have the record labels all over her”. He has said he would love to coach me further and take me to a higher level vocally.””

Now things are moving forward for the singer who said: “I have made the decision that there needs to be more than just ‘Jenna Jay’ on stage. I want to wow the audience with a show, so we are going to hold auditions to search for dancers who would like the opportunity to dance with me at up and coming events in Aberdeen and if they are interested in performing further afield. The opportunity will be there to perform in Birmingham, and possibly Nottingham, Essex and London.

Jenna performs her numbers, ‘Two Different People’, Stop and ‘You Make Me Feel Good’ at gigs locally and beyond, and the latter has recently received coverage on Northsound Radio.

Anyone who would like to be considered to perform with Jenna J should email jennj@live.co.uk for further details.

Additionally, Jenna has applied to be part of The Unsigned Tour which showcases undiscovered talent at nationwide events. She said: “I would love to be a part this, it would open many more opportunities for me.”
