How refreshing then to meet fourteen-year-old pop singer Jasmine Sagginario. This fun twenty-first century girl is no doubt hip to the times—yeah, she’s on Facebook, but she can also think and act way beyond them as indicated by the title track on her irresistibly danceable debut release, The Next Me.
Where is everyone’s originality? I’m not ashamed of what I believe ‘cause now is not eternity. I’m not gonna be like everyone else. I don’t want to be the next big thing. I’m gonna be the next me.
“My music is about being who God made me to be and not falling back into the world’s standards,” says Jasmine. “It’s easy to find negative influences and do things we wouldn’t normally do. Kids struggle with it all the time. But some friends and I have a saying we try to live by: keep it holy. That’s my thing.”
She's Really Good!| Posted December 01, 2009
The first time I heard her was a couple days ago. My sister had heard her for the first time and was listening to her song 'Make a Movie' (I think that's what it was called). Anyway, she has a really great, powerful voice for her age. How old is she? Like 14? I think she's really great!
