About Me Hello Beatiful Souls. My name is Jakeya Sanders, but I go by Jaye Sanders, and Im from Philadelphia. I began evolving in my musical gift at the early age of 8 yrs old. As a pastor’s daughter, I was raised in church, singing hymns, directing the youth choir, and then launched out to other great genres of music. I write, arrange, and sing Gospel, R&B, Pop, Indie and Alternative music. Graduated in 2002 from CAPA (The High School of Creative and Performing Arts of Philadelphia) where I studied Theater, and Vocal Music. In the year 2009 until the summer of 2011, I've worked as an ARTIST DEVELOPER(A&R) for a local music group company held in the Philadelphia area. There I worked with different artists to shape their craft and develop an image for them as artists. Many people compare my voice and vocal techniques to Chrisette Michele, Kierra Sheard, and Kim Burrell. I have performed background vocals for artists such as New York’s own Kissk 13, the actor Idris Elba(UK), Philadelphia native Bilal and many more. I have opened shows for Gospel artist Dorinda Clark Cole. I have referenced songs in the studio for Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Jazmine Sullivan and other popular entertainers. I am a vocal mentor for local artists in Philly, New Jersey, New York, London and Spain. I am now working on my solo career and am planning to share my great talents with the world.
