Killing the game with her unique sense of style and signature skyscraper heels, she is Jenilee. A multi-faceted artist giving new meaning to “multi-threat”, she does it all. Packing a soulful voice, infectious melodies and stand out top lines, her compelling stage and on camera presence are an added bonus to her exotic look. While she is able to perform and write any genre, her own music is a fusion of Pop-Urban-Rock.
