KListen: @JessicaBetts “Holding On” #LLcoolJess

swoon

Now I know some of y’all are squinting at the screen trying to figure how you know that name and that face…. that face.

Jessica Betts was the winner of  Mona Scott-Young (pre-Love and Hip Hop) and Missy Elliot’s reality show, Road To Stardom, back in the day.

Check out youtube for some clips if you want but I can sum up her performances for you pretty simply. Her voice was so soulful and sultry that you didn’t know whether you wanted to slide to church or slide in some… never mind. (Fine Judge Me!)

She seemed to slip off the mainstream radar for a few years after that, coming back in 2012 with this powerhouse jam, “Holding On”.  I still remember the first time I saw this video. I watched with my mouth gaped open and my pearls clutched lol.

Did I say swoon already? Well just in case … swoon.

Take a look. Take a listen. What do you think?

Enjoy…

Jessica, oh Jessica where have you been?

Per her official website:

Most recently, Jessica opened the mid-Atlantic leg of the K. MIchelle ‘Rebellious Soul’ tour in November/December 2013 and closed the BET Honors pre-Show in February 2014.  Currently the BET Music Matters artist is back in the studio working on her next project titled #LLcoolJess due for release June 2014

Wait that’s now! Yes Lawd.

Know anyone else we should feature? Let us know.
