This thirteen-year-old has been getting quite a bit of attention this year, belting out R&B remakes on YouTube. With her dad’s support, she could create a classic of her own, like he did. Do you know which 80′s R&B singer is her dad?
Perri Jones is the daughter of none other than 80s hit maker Oran “Juice” Jones. While he’s best known for the stalker classic “The Rain,” Oran actually has been making it rain on the low, providing music for commercials and films.
Now he’s focused on promoting the careers of his kids: Perri’s older brother Mookie is a rapper.
With labels taking a strong interest in this little girl with the big voice – Oran took his daughter up to a meeting with Def Jam last week – Perri’s released her first original song.
