“Music has always been a big part of me; it is the place where I feel most joy. No matter what might be going on, music always make me feel so good on the inside.”
When the school years were over one of Jennifer’s friends from the choir started a band and she was invited to sing.
“I always wanted to be in a band so I was super happy. We started playing in clubs and my friends came to watch, it was a big deal for me. The feeling I get on stage is indescribable, it’s the highest mix of emotions,” Jennifer explains.
After a while, the drummer left for another band and Jennifer came along to audition as lead singer.
“They actually loved it, and we have been together since. Our band is called Banda Troya and the others are still located in São Paulo while I moved to New York, US a few years back. We do concerts every time I go back to Brazil and we recently did a great show celebrating five years as a band.”
Today, with the coronavirus spreading around the globe, it is not possible for Jennifer and the band to get together.
