No stranger to the business Jasmine has been entertaining people since the tender age of four when she discovered her talent for singing and would perform at all family functions. Even at four years old everyone could tell Jasmine was special when they were knocked out by the power in the little dynamos voice. When Jasmine was seven years old she won a singing contest at a Hawaiian Tropics contest in San Jose, California. Jasmine was discovered at age eleven when a guy heard her singing while she was walking down the street. He was so impressed that he took her to meet his friend Gabriella Mosci who was working for producer and music extraordinaire, Damon Dash. Gabriella saw something extremely special in Jasmine and decided to manager her. Just a day before Jasmine turned 12 years old she signed to Damon Dash Music Group. Jasmine began honing her skills in music and acting and was booking jobs in those fields by the age of ten landing her first acting job in a commercial for the hit animated feature The Land Before The Time. It wasn't before long that this San Jose native was landing her first professional singing gig at age eleven when she performed the National Anthem for the Los Angeles Clippers.
With a work ethic that would rival a hundred steel workers, Jasmine who has been home-schooled since the third grade began touring at age eleven and in the past 5 ½ years has performed in over 400 shows across country and overseas. She is an extremely seasoned performer and also devotes a lot of her time giving back to the community. She has performed for educational school assembly programs across the country.
