For this month’s cover, I’d like to introduce Jamie Boy and his soft voice. Let’s start with his cover of Chris Brown latest single, Privacy.
Who is Jamie Boy?
Jamie Avecilla aka Jamie Boy is a young Pop and R’n’B singer, dancer and artist from California. He is born on 7th February 1996 and is of Filipino descent.
Jamie’s interest in Music began at a young age. He is very close of his parents who are very supportive of his career choice.
His musical influences are varied but come mostly from the R’n’B scene: Boys II Men, Justin Bieber, Trey Songz, Miguel, Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West, Jay Z and Chris Brown (Jamie even appeared in Chris Brown music video Yeah 3x, six years ago).
Jamie’s debut in the music industry
Jamie created his YouTube channel in 2010 and started posting cover songs of several popular artists such as Drake, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, etc. After a while, he started posting his original songs too.
In 2013, he released an original song called California featuring Kalin and Myles. You can watch the official video > here <
Thanks to his growing popularity, he had the opportunity to get a management team. However, he’s currently unsigned.
Jamie is working on his own music and continues to upload covers on his YouTube channel that has over 140.000 subscribers now.
Besides his music, he also dances and gives dance lessons from time to time.
What do I say about him?
Jamie seems to be a simple guy, down-to-earth and determined. It looks like his will to succeed is highly motivated by his goal to offer a better life to his parents, to his family. And I totally understand and relate to that. I think many of us can. Especially when you come from an immigrant family, as Jamie does, who have dedicated their lives to offer the best to their children.
Through his social media, we can see he’s working hard and this is essential nowadays to build a sustainable career whether it is in Music or not. There are not many shortcuts and success do not always happen overnight.
Jamie is a talented young boy with a beautiful voice and who has a pure heart. I sincerely believe he can achieve his goals and have a successful career in the business. It is just a matter of time. I can’t wait to see what’s next and how his career will evolve.
