Born in the small town of Dublin, Georgia, Jhai Norris, the third of six children, turned to music for attention. At the age of 11, she and a friend were featured on the Local TV Station. The performance was so good that producers asked for an encore. That was the beginning of the career of this budding star.
Jhai kept performing. She did auditions and talent shows and pageants. She soon won her first showcase: the Atlantic Records Presents…”The Series” Talent showcase. This win lead her to her first studio where she began to record songs for a demo.

She even landed herself a spot on the final audition callback list for the Victoria Secret’s Annual Fashion Show in 2009.
Jhai performed a beautiful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner in front of 20,000 NBA Washington Wizards fans. She was invited back to sing for the Washington Wizards in 2011 and invited to sing for the Washington Mystics in 2012.

“I kind of like to call my sound a lil bit of the blues mixed with country and a tad bit of rock. That is what I envisioned for this new single. I think everyone will like it.” -Jhai
