Her journey as an artist started at the age of 16 when she was named the youth choir leader at Kingdom Glory Ministries, a position that sparked her passion for the art of singing, leading her to train classically to increase her aptititude for the art In 2012, she became the first female cypher for the University of Toronto’s radio station CFRE Radio where she also showcased other upcoming female MC’s in the city.
When she is not writing and recording songs, Jones hones her love for fashion by working with and helping Toronto based urban fashion desisnger. A woman just as in touch with her romantic side as she is with her creative side, the singer was the perfect lady to give our readers a little bit of dating advice as our #womancrushwednesday.
What is your ideal first date?
My ideal first date is a dinner and dancing just hanging out anywhere we can have good conversation.
Who do you go to for dating advice?
I just basically follow my gut instinct and follow my own dating advice. I think it’s very important to just take your time when you like someone but also don’t forget to have fun.
Have you ever done something crazy to get a crush’s attention?
The craziest thing that I ever did to get a guy’s attention was drive by his house every day to see if he was there.
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
Definitely their sense of humour. If you can make me laugh, then that’s a big bonus.
Describe the best date you’ve ever been on:
It was a dinner with my boyfriend followed by a night of karaoke. I love to sing and joke around, and karaoke is always a good ingredient for that. I’m a pretty simple girl it doesn’t take much to make me happy. I honestly just enjoy the quality time spent with a significant other.
