Jayna Brown may only be 12 years old, but she’s already a POWERHOUSE! This girl has soul and can belt out melodies that will blow you away. She comes from a family of strong, hardworking and independent women. Her mom served in the Army as a Specialist and was stationed in Iraq when she was younger. With her mom overseas, Jayna lived in Maryland with her grandparents, singing and dancing to Diana Ross and the Supremes, Marvin Gaye and The Temptations. Even though her mom was away, her entire family recognized Jayna’s talent and always encouraged her to perform—she even became a regular soloist at her church! In 2012, Jayna was a Top 4 finalist in KIDZ BOP’s national KIDZ Star USA talent competition where her big voice and even bigger personality stole the hearts of the KIDZ BOP team. When it came time to cast new KIDZ BOP Kids, Jayna’s name was at the top of the list.
