Houston’s self-proclaimed R&B Princess tragically lost her life on April 7th at the age of 19 due to a drunk driver. JaeRene had recently recorded an uplifting song “Safe Place”. Her family has chose to release this song to help bring comfort to her fans, followers, and supporters. Proceeds from the single will be donated to Mother’s Against Drunk Drivers (MADD).
Born and raised in the city that birthed a unique sound, diverse culture, and many national talents, JaeRene was the epitome of Houston. The self-proclaimed Houston R&B Princess made her mark on the music scene in a major way. She was no stranger to the stage as she won a plethora of local, and national beauty pageants since the age of 4. Her personality, talent, and tenacity led her to perform at festivals, sporting events, concerts, and social events.
Her diverse sound was featured on one of Houston’s most requested song, “H-Town For Real (Remix)”, which featured artists such as Kiotti, Paul Wall, Lil Flip, Kiotti, Trilly Polk, ZRo, and various Houston-based talents. In addition to singing, JaeRene also wrote her own music which was often inspired by life situations.
She was formerly a host of Kidz Jams on 953 Jamz where she encouraged teens to live out their dreams. Her community was something she loved, so she often hosted “Baddie Bootcamps” where she promoted positive self-esteem, body images, and confidence to young girls of the ages of 5-18. There will be a candlelight vigil held in Houston tonight at The Raven Tower at 7pm to remember and honor the life of a beautiful soul gone too soon.
