New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) February 03, 2011
Los Angeles singer/songwriter Jazmine "JAZZY" Bailey was announced as FFAWN's Featured Member Of The Month early this morning. The Foundation For The Advancement Of Women, Inc. (FFAWN) was created and funded in 2007 by Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute in order to use Mary's personal story and success to inspire women from all walks of life to reach their individual potential. JAZZY, a songwriter previously signed to Foxx/King Entertainment (Jamie Foxx) had a stellar year as a free agent in 2010 with the release of her highly acclaimed mixtape Beauty And The Beat. The collection featured Grammy nominated singer/songwriters Melanie Fiona and Eric Roberson along with Bravo reality television star and Grammy award winner, Kandi Burruss. Star-Trak DJ/Producer/Artist duo Christian Rich and producers Wow Jones and J-Doe also provided their talents. The success led to a northeast promotional tour which included Philadelphia, New York City, Boston and Baltimore show dates.

"I am honored to be a featured member of FFAWN," says JAZZY. "I think it means a lot to be a strong woman. Women empowerment plays a large part in my life. Being that I'm a female artist, I think it's important to empower young girls and to help them develop confidence in their gifts and capabilities." JAZZY will also look to inspire young females as a confirmed performer at this years Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit in Brooklyn, NY (March 12th).
Additionally, JAZZY will be releasing a new project, Letters To A King on Valentine's Day, Monday, February 14th. Letters To A King is a cover project of classic r&b songs from artists such as Anita Baker, Minnie Ripperton, Diana Ross, and Roberta Flack. The project, as JAZZY describes, is a love letter through music. "I am a LOVER, and I do believe that all my music to date embodies that." So, for Valentine's Day, JAZZY's love letter to her future King, as well as her fans, is this project. Letters To A King will be available for FREE download at JAZZY's website http://www.IamJazzy.com
Enclosed is a link to the first record off her new project, "Feel Like Making Love" originally performed by Roberta Flack.

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Jazmine "JAZZY" Bailey is the new face of R&B. Her big break came after her and writing partner Bobbie Cheri (collectively known as the Write Chix) signed a publishing deal with famed Hollywood actor and artist, Jamie Foxx (Foxx/King Entertainment). She recently parted ways to pursue other opportunities, one of which, was the success of her 2010 mixtape release Beauty And The Beat.
JAZZY is set to release a R&B Classics remake project on Valentine's Day 2011 "Letter To A King." A new untitled album will be released late 2011 as well.
