After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Drexel with her degree in Psychology and minor in Chemistry, Charis returned to her first love; singing and performing. She was determined to balance this love while also acquiring her Master's in Public Health. It was not uncommon for her to have to write a 25 page paper, and then have to go sing at a jazz club.

With this new focus and commitment Charis managed to take Philly by storm in 2009-2010. During this momentum, Charis spent her time understanding the music industry and acquired great assistance in developing her business from the Philadelphia Lawyers for the Arts. Charis established and is the CEO and Founder of JC1VOICE Entertainment, Inc. which markets her talents as an entertainer, actor and health advocate. However, she took a 4 year sabbatical to further determine what she wanted in life musically, spiritually and professionally. But by 2014, she realized that she did not need to choose one or the other, but instead, she could have it all. Yet, on June 1, 2015; she resigned from her directorship position, and became a full-time singer. The songs composed by Charis are at best described as her life experiences, compiled into relatable musical testimonies. With great excitement, the 5 year long debut EP album, entitled "Introducing Miss Jones" was released on July 7, 2015. 

Charis' music genre is all-encompassing with focuses on a neo-soul feel and an R&B, pop and funk sound. She is inspired by several genres of music and artists that include but are not limited to: Gospel, Jazz, Funk, Japanese Pop, Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Donald Vails, Mint Condition, Tweet, and Erykah Badu.
