With ingénue appeal and a soulful vocal style, Genevieve Jackson comes as the latest talent to emerge from the famously talented Jackson family. Poised to make her mark on the music scene, the budding artist attributes her Latin influence to her Colombian born mother who she names as the biggest supporter of her dreams. “I am a big fan of my Colombian roots, as well as my African American roots. I am blessed to come from such a talented family, she says.” Part of what sets her apart is her variety of influences. “Growing up, my family would always play old school music. I grew up listening to Earth, Wind, & Fire, The Commodores, Diana Ross, Chaka Khan, The Jackson 5, Prince, and Aretha Franklin.” One of her ultimate dreams is to collaborate with Prince. When asked where she wants to go musically Genevieve says, “I see myself doing many styles. I don’t want to just stop with pop and R&B, but want to do Rock, Hip-Hop, Punjabi, and Techno/Dance. From early on Genevieve always knew that she wanted to be a performer. Her family can remember her singing from the tender age of two. First to volunteer for the school talent shows and plays she honed her talent and found that she loved being in front of a large audience. In true Jackson form, she is somewhat shy at times, but according to Genevieve, “Once I get on that stage it’s a whole different story!” Plain and simple—she lights up the stage. As she stands ready to take the next step in her musical path she brings the drive and enthusiasm of a girl who knows who she is and what she wants to accomplish. “My goal is to be the best that I can be, she says. Through my voice that God has given me, I am hoping to do a lot of great things for the world. Her goals include helping the homeless and traveling the world to make a difference. She knows that through her music she can finally begin her journey.
In January 2016, Genvieve launched the EIGBO (Everything Is Gonna Be OK) movement for and in which she uses her voice to spread positivity and love. She created eigbo to give people that little bit of reassurance that we all need to hear from time to time to know that everything is gonna be ok.
