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.
