Jai Fears, is on the cusp of superstardom. A multi talented Pop & R&B singer, songwriter, dancer, actress and model, Jai's tenacious work ethic is the result of overcoming many obstacles in her childhood. From being homeless with her Mother at the age of 16, to being diagnosed with a rare skin disease, Jai has persevered to make quite a name for herself.
Born and raised in Detroit, Jai developed an appreciation for the Arts at a very young age. Her Mother would play old school R & B records at home all the time, unknowingly predetermining Jai's future dancing gigs with Motown greats Aretha Franklin and Charlie Wilson. At the age of 14, Jai flew to Los Angeles to compete in a national talent competition. With her first win under her belt, she was “bit by the bug.”
Since then, she has danced with Nsync, Aretha Franklin and Charlie Wilson. In 2006 she performed at the Super Bowl 40 Pre Show with legendary Stevie Wonder and R&B
sensation John Legend. She has opened up for Keyshia Cole, K Michelle, Ryan Leslie, Diggy Simmons, Charlie Wilson, The Gap Band and Melissa Morgan. Performing at numerous sold out festivals and events hosted by Radio One's Hot 107.5 and BET in Los Angeles, Venice Beach, Detroit and Chicago, Jai's
breakout performances were both in 2012 on BET's 106 & Park "Wild Out Wednesdays" talent competition. Winning both times to a standing ovation, she snagged the coveted "ALL STAR FEMALE HIP HOP/R & B" title. In 2012, she won "Best Female R & B Artist” at The Indie Music Channel Awards in Los Angeles.
Other credits include being featured in national print ads for Nike and Degree Deodorant and on screen in major feature films "The Wood," "MVP" "Oogieloves Big Balloon Adventure" and "Crossover." Her explosive portrayal as Eboni in "Crossover" co-starring Wayne Brady and Eva Pigford has earned her several nods from movie critics.
The writing's on the wall, "Jai Fears nothing."
