Sanchez, Jessica

About

Born and raised in Chula Vista, California, Sanchez has worked on honing her vocal versatility for almost her entire life. She started singing when she was two and lists Mariah Carey, Etta James, and Ray Charles among her musical influences.

At age ten she performed Aretha Franklin's Respect on an episode of Showtime at the Apollo. A year later, she competed on the premiere season of America's Got Talent, reaching the wild-card round before getting cut.

Over the next few years, Sanchez performed at venues both large and small (including a 2008 San Diego Chargers game) and released a number of covers (such as Etta James's I'd Rather Go Blind ) through an independent record label. After nailing her American Idol audition in 2011, Sanchez climbed to the final two and landed her deal with Interscope soon after the season finale.

Diving into the recording of her debut in Summer 2012, Sanchez took a break from the studio to tear through a rousing, choir-backed rendition of Marvin Gaye's All I Need To Get By at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

Jessica Sanchez's 2013 major-label debut, Me, You & the Music, creates a showcase for the 2012 American Idol runner-up's big, soulful voice and contemporary pop style. Working with a handful of producers including Toby Gad, J.R. Rotem, the Benassi Bros., and the Underdogs, Sanchez delivers a batch of high-energy, dance-oriented R&B cuts that frame her robust vocals.

Editorial Review: Heartbeat of Home, the new music and dance spectacular from the producers of Riverdance, lovingly encompasses a diverse array of multicultural influences, blending the thunder and drama of Irish dance with the sultriness and attitude of Latin American salsa, and the glorious rhythms of Africa.

Heartbeat of Home features original music by Golden Globe-nominated composer Brian Byrne and lyrics by award-winning writer Joseph O Connor, and will be broadcast on PBS stations across the country in the month of March (check local listings).

Joseph comments: when we marry the sexiness of salsa to the thunder of Irish dance, the lyricism of tango to the yearning of sean-nos, what a night of storytelling we shall have.

With world-class dancers from Ireland, USA, Australia, Britain, Canada, Italy, Mexico and Spain and choreography by David Bolger, the production creates a dreamworld of joyous, heart-stopping, high-energy music and dance.
