Janaia is a multi-faceted singer with an unique five-octave range. She
sings in French, English, Spanish, Portuguese and Mandarin.
She possesses the type of vocal range associated only with the ‘greats’ but has a humbleness about her that pulls you in. Her disarming comfort on stage displays a presence that defies her age while simultaneously revealing sensuality and wide eyed innocence. And her voice... she takes her listeners on a journey of honey tones and perfect high notes that stretch your senses to the fullest. We like the word ‘goosebumps’.
Janaia has performed from Hollywood to Hong Kong (four years at Four Seasons’ Sevva), Mandarin Oriental Bangkok and has toured across the globe performing in musicals (Hair Spray, Chicago, Little Shop of Horrors, The Wiz etc), with orchestras, major label recording studios
(Sony, Warner, EMI).
With experience in Jazz, Soul, RnB, Funk, Top 40/Dance, Opera, Reggae, Janaia is the perfect chameleon for our diverse membership. Janaia becomes the character of the genre of music she performs and she is not afraid to dance on stage. She doesn’t just sing the songs as most artists do, she makes you feel the songs.
JOYFUL FACT: Janaia’s middle name is Joy. Janaia is pronounced Ja-Nay-Yah. The music is what brings the JOY in her life and to so many others. You are invited to feel her JOY.
