Hailing from Norcross, GA by way of East Elmhurst, NY Jenise was born and raised in church under the Apostolic doctrine and the Pentecostal experience. With parents active in ministry, her father a bishop, and mother a missionary and teacher, the word of God was planted in her soul at an early age. Jenise began singing on the children’s choir at the age of 2 and at the age of 11 she began writing her own songs. From the wise advice of her father, Jenise continued in writing music and included a vocal coach, which helped develop her craft of singing and opened several doors for her to minister through song.
In 2007, Jenise joined forces with Rahim Beyah of Czar Entertainment and produced a 3 song demo which was released locally under the title "The Call". In 2009 Jenise competed in the 1st annual Gospel Star Search at the Greater Refuge Temple Church of Our Lord jesus Christ, where she came in second place. In December of 2010, Jenise toured Europe with J. David Bratton, and the New York State Mass Choir. Given the opportunity to see the world and its desire to be ministered to, the fire began to burn again in Jenise’s heart to produce music that will do just that; minister.
As God would have it, Jenise met and began to work with Tarence Farrell of Levite Music mid 2011. Since then, the two have begun production on her forth coming album, "The Call". With musical influences ranging from Dorothy Dandridge, and Tina Turner, to Vickie Winans, and John P. Kee, her album is expected to inspire, uplift, influence, and most of all minister. With powerful vocals and enlightening lyrics there is no doubt that Jenise La Vonne is and will continue to be a trail blazer in the music industry.
