During the segment, Jae shares her thoughts on love, self love, and the death of her father.
Dynamic songstress Jae Franklin is a citizen of the world. Her curiosity about the interconnectedness of people has led her to perform in over 20 countries from Ethiopia to Dubai. No stranger to pop stardom, Jae toured as a background vocalist for Grammy Award winner Melanie Fiona and eventually began performing at a host of reputable venues across the world as a solo artist. Franklin sure knows her stuff and now its time for her to get in the minds of the masses.
Jae was a 80s baby. She grew up in one of the most dynamic eras of music when R&B, house, electro, and hip hop increased in popularity.
Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Jae’s father exposed her to the blues - the likes of B.B. King and Bobby “Blue” Bland, balanced out with greats like Shirley Caesar and Michael Jackson.
Jae also shared her mother’s love of contemporary pop and soul music, admiring the music of Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, and Michael Bolton. Today, Jae is inspired by legends like Angelique Kidjo, Jamiroquai, Stevie Wonder, and Sade. It’s no wonder her music sounds the way it does.
Since 2010, Jae has given the world a taste of what’s next. Her voice can be heard on countless collaborations across the web.

Her collaborations and solo projects have been applauded by esteemed websites like VIBE, MOOVMNT, Sampleface, and Groovement. Her new single ‘Music & Love,’ premiered on reputable websites like Indie Shuffle and URB.

People always find it strange when I tell them that I don’t cook but yet they always see food on my social media pages. It’s simple….I love to take photos of food!
