Her musical talents as a singer, songwriter and dancer cross several musical genres, including R&B, Hip Hop, Reggae, Pop, Jazz, Blues and House.  It wasn’t until she met the label reps at SoBe Entertainment, who offered to work with her initially on a handshake to see if they were creatively compatible, that she finally found nirvana. Given the artistic freedom to write her own lyrics and compose her own music, the magic happened. Suddenly a creative relationship was formed and her musical journey began *Ja’Rae and her nine-member ensemble, “The J-Mack Band,” will begin her eagerly anticipated North American, Japanese and European tours starting in March 2014. Ja’Rae states, “I have a great musical challenge ahead of me. I have an incredible musical legacy to live up to and I have to bring it correct, every time.
