JoyJuice: Where did you get a voice like that?
Jadine: I got it from my momma.
Jadine: Yup.... really! (with a huge smile) She used to sing almost everyday in the house and before I went on my own, I sang backup with her for several years for many artists. Even today, most people can't tell our voices apart.
JoyJuice: What was your first musical influence? Was it Soca?
Jadine: Oh Noooo..... you know where everybody goes on a Sunday in the Caribbean? To Church, so Gospel was a huge influence for me. But now, Soca is it!
JoyJuice: So why Jadine - The Soca Diva?
Jadine: Well, I am ready to hit the world by storm and when I do, I want them to know that I am a Soca Diva first and Soca is where my heart is!
JoyJuice: If there is one person in the world you will like to perform alongside, who would it be?
Jadine: Hmm, I would have to say Tina Turner. I love her attitude on stage, I really dig that.
JoyJuice: Since I met you, you are nothing but all smiles.....How do you keep a straight face on a rough day?
Jadine: Well, as you can see I love to smile....see my teeth?
Jadine: (she laughs) Stop it! I want to impact peoples' lives even when I am off stage. So on rough days...I smile more.
JoyJuice: Name one place country in world you would like to perform.
Jadine: That's easy ... Down Under ... Australia! I don't know, there is just something about that place that captures my attention, probably the accent as well. For me, it would be an opportunity to share our Caribbean culture with a new place. Plus I love Kangaroos :-)
JoyJuice: Ok...time is almost up. I have some quick questions for you and need some quick answers off the bat, ok?
JoyJuice: Favorite longtime Soca singer?
Jadine: Arrow, of course!!
JoyJuice: Favorite current Soca singer....
Jadine: Bunji, he has presence!
JoyJuice: Last one, favorite quote and by whom?
Jadine: "When it rains ... get wet" - Quincy Jones.
Well TJJers I can bet you, when it begins to rain for Jadine, TJJ will be right there to get wet!
