Jazmin Headley – Five Questions With

Jazmin Headley

9-year-old Pop star Jazmin Headley releases a reimagining of “We Are The World” in support of Meagan’s Hug!

Jazmin Headley, otherwise known as Jazz, has recently unveiled her new single, “We Are The World”.

9-year-old Jazz started writing music and playing the piano at a very young age and found a way to connect with her own age group.  The young artist uses her music as a vehicle to promote positivity. 

The outgoing Jazz leads by example. “We Are The World” was a song that united the world and Jazz brings that heart & message to her reimagined version, which is very much what her young fans have come to love about the popular artist.

Jazz shares,

“Be a positive participant in your own life and in others.”

The young pop artists music is upbeat and fun at a time when we are all looking for a release from the two years of Covid-19 restrictions and are looking for positive ways to do that.

Last week, Jazz performed at the 21st annual 5KM walk and signature HUG event hosted by Meagan’s HUG. Jazz donated 20% of all proceeds from her new single to Meagan’s HUG “Hope For Ukraine” supporting Ukrainian families in Toronto forced to flee their homes to resume pediatric cancer treatments. 

Jazz strongly believes you are in charge of your own destiny & brings her own outgoing personality, heart & passion to everything she does. Jazz’s positive outlook is one reason why she is a welcomed addition to the CBC TV television series, “Ukulele U.”

An enthusiastic participant in her own life and in others, Jazhelps raise money for many causes. One such cause is Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). Jazz was recently presented with an award for “Selfless Service & Contributions To Others” by the MPP of Brampton Sara Singh. It’s important for this community-minded artist to spread a message of positivity and hope in her community.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

My name is Jazmin Headley. I am 9 years old. I love to sing, play volleyball and enjoy acting.

Tell us a bit about your most recent release.

Through the pandemic, I started singing to cope. I was singing before but found a more prominent voice during covid.

During the war with Ukraine, I felt hopeless when I thought of all the kids trying to flee all those that were hurt and witnessed a disturbing video on YouTube of a little girl getting injured. I thought to myself that it could be me. I felt I needed to support all the kids and let them know I was here.

MPP Sarah Singh once told me that if getting my message across to the world was through singing, I should sing. I knew the one song that could heal the world and try to send a strong message to everyone that we make up this world, let’s not destroy it. I want all kids to play safe, so I decided to sing and hopefully raise money for kids in Ukraine.

When it comes to the global pandemic, how are you keeping yourself out in the public eye while not being able to perform?

I created youtube videos, and I wrote and published a journal to encourage kids to express themselves by writing daily. Every night, I read to my grandma, performed on zoom, created charities, and raised money for charities.

Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so if you were able to work with ONE fellow Canadian artist, alive or dead, who would you choose?

I would say The Weeknd, as my favorite teacher used to sing his song all the time, and each time I hear his music, I remember her. We still kept in touch, but she showed a lot of kindness and love,  and she listened to that song every day. I didn’t enjoy school but looked forward to her singing The Weeknd song, so I made it easier to deal with the situation.

What’s your goal for 2022?

My goal is to continue singing and doing charity work, focusing on school. I’m currently recording an EP with four of my favoruite songs, which I’m A co-writer on 2 of them.
