Jessie J: How I Knew I Was Meant to Be a Singer

Jessie J is the hot new thang on the scene. She’s a British songwriter and singer who exploded on the scene after her hit single "Do It Like a Dude" made it big.

So what inspired her to get into the business? “I think when I was younger, I always knew that I wanted to get my message out there but I didn't know how,” Jessie told Stereotude at the 3rd Annual ELLE Women In Music Event.

“I think when I realized that I wasn't really academic at school but people kind of seemed to enjoy it when I sang, it kind of made me realize if I partnered the two together that it's a global message, that everyone has music in common.”

How does it feel to be a part of the British Invasion? “It feels amazing,” she told Stereotude.”

Before making it big as a singer Jessie wrote tracks for Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus. Aside from her singing career, Jessie J is currently a coach and mentor on television show The Voice UK. No wonder life is amazing!
