When she was three years old, she unsettled her parents by asking if she had the ability to sing. The words of her parents, according to the 9-year-old Canadian-born Jamaican actress and singer, Jazmin Headley, were the unveiling moment of her bigger purpose in life.

When she wrote her first single, “Dance With Me”, it was in honor of Black Lives hero, George Floyd. On her 8th birthday, she donated $1,200 she raised to sick children. She also donated 20 percent of proceeds when she performed at a concert with Michael Jackson’s classic song “We Are The World” which she remixed last month. She has been involved in charities targeted at transforming the lives of children around minority communities.

The latest is a cultural rap session she organized for children in Kingston, Jamaica to help them unearth their God-given talents.

The young Afro pop star said she wants her talent to project positivity everywhere she goes. According to her, she wants to encourage other underprivileged children as her parents supported her by getting her singing teacher to shape her talent.

She said though she was in Jamaica to connect with her roots, she saw the cultural rap session as her way of giving back and living her passion for music with other children.

Delving into her love for music, young Jazmin said she took a lot of inspiration from the works of Michael Jackson, Katy Perry and Pentatonix.

She noted that she finds herself when she performs and sings. “I find my strength and my essence in singing and meeting different people from different cultures and race,” she added.

She indicated that she identifies social causes based on how she feels strongly about an issue. She has in the past supported communities lacking social amenities, the homeless and children who are seriously sick.

She said her definition of love is how people are touched by her charity and the words in her song.
