Artist of the day: JacQui S
JacQui S just turned 18, yet she’s already put together an impressive resume. Last spring, the budding R&B singer performed at Funk Fest Tampa Bay at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, alongside the likes of MC Hammer and Bobby Brown. And she’s also performed in cities around the south, opening for everyone from Faith Evans to Musiq Soulchild to Juelz Santana to Earth, Wind and Fire.
JacQui’s 2010 CD The Real Thing is a glitzy, slickly produced collection (Taking Over is a particularly catchy pulse-pounder), but in 2011, she began pushing two new singles: Number One and Be Happy, the latter of which features Tampa rapper Tom G. Click here to check out the video.
