Did You see Jamai on Fox 29s “Good Day Philadelphia?” Tuesday (7/31/15) the “Earthquake” singer popped up on Fox 29s morning show Good Day Philadelphia as a contestant to win Philly Idol, a local competition that affords a lucky singer the opportunity to skip over the first audition for AMERICAN IDOL and head straight to the 2nd audition, as well as have a special meet and greet with This Seasons Celebrity Judges (Can someone say J-LOOOOOOO! *googly eyes*)
Jamai auditioned for Philly Idol on July 30th, only to be picked in the top 3 of over 1000 other hopefuls who also auditioned, but wasn’t quite as good and The Unhuman Entertainer. hA! Jamai then along with 2 other contestants in the top three performed Live on the show. Jamai wowed the studio audience and obviously the judges. Leon Huff, one half of the Legendary Songwriter/Production Duo GAMBLE & HUFF who has produced everyone from Michael Jackson, Patti Labelle, Teddy Pendergrass and more was quoted “Voice quality! Style, Personality, Appearance…And That Guitar!” When asked about why he picked Jamai to be a finalist. Other Judges included Dj Cosmic Kev, Of Philadelphia Hip Hop Station Power 99, and Radio Personality Patty Jackson of Philadelphia Oldies Station WDAS, whom all were impressed by Jamai.
Sources say that Jamai has been teaching himself the guitar for a while but has waited to present his talent to the world. It is unclear how long he has been learning this gift of guitar. Hopefully we will see more of him and his guitar soon. On Tuesday he performed an acoustic version of Super Bowl Half Time Performer- Katy Perry; Wide Awake, and as Jamai always does…made it his own.

On Thursday morning (4/17/15) Jamai took to instagram and opened up in the caption of this picture about how his red hair(and the attention is caused) made and still makes him insecure stating:
“When I decided to brand myself as an artist with #RedHair I understood that it would make me memorable when I wanted to be seen and when I didn’t want to. The perfect training for paparazzi following you, people recognizing you when you don’t want to be recognized or not looking UP TO PAR as a celebrity. My fear said…WHO ROCKS RED HAIR? That’s corny, that’s crazy, too flamboyant, just drawling. Then I realized that it would be ultimately me really embracing who I am as an indiviual/artist. Ppl look at me crazy everywhere I go. AS LONG AS THEY HAVE AN OPINION (gd or bd) is all I care about. If you have an opinion, this mean YOU REMEMBER and I made an impression!

Covering the song was no surprise for Jamai fans because of his old soul, reminiscent to the instrumentation and vibe of the song. BUT still, as the Unhuman Entertainer always does, He made it his own. Check out the videos below. Follow Jamai @JamaiMusic
