"Jennifer Tom is a trailblazer for female artist in metropolitan Atlanta!" - Industry Insider
Born in the small town of Port Arthur, Texas and raised in the Seattle/Tacoma area; since the age of 7 she has been a star in the making. In 1996, while show casing wherever she could, she landed a role in the hit Gospel play, "A Good Man Is Hard To Find". After a year of traveling with the play Jennifer realized she had been blessed with not just a singing talent, but acting as well. In late 1998, she moved to Hollywood and landed a few background roles on UPN''s Moesha, The Little Richard Story, HBO''s Dancing In September, and City of Angels, just to name a few. After a year in Hollywood, Jennifer returned to her current place of residence in Atlanta. "California was truly a learning experience, and it helped to draw me closer to God", says Jennifer. "I found that music was my first love, and that God had always been on my side. I also gained alot of respect for struggling artists".
Once back in Atlanta, Jennifer teamed up with Dwight ''Lil Scrapp'' Reynolds of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. The result of this collaboration was the future hits: "You Should''ve Kept Me To Yo'' Self" and "Gonna Take More". These pop creations give listeners a chance to hear the sultry singers vocal range and diversity. "Working with Dwight was amazing", says Jennifer. "And when I walked into the studio, we just clicked! The lyrics to his songs were exactly what I had always wanted to say. God has an incredible sense of humor, and people meet for a reason". Jennifer also collaborated with producer Tyrone Maximus for the hot mid-tempo track, "While The Cat''s Away". It was here where Jennifer realized she had been blessed with yet another talent: Songwriting. After she penned this song, she continued to write poetry whenever she felt led by the spirit. Her latest writing creation was with producer Corey Midget, where they delivered a 4th future hit called "It''s Like That". On this track Jennifer had a chance to test her aggressive rapping skills, and the end result was beautiful. The voice of Jennifer Tom embraces the senses, often touching the very heart of timeless soul.
Wanting to learn more about the business, Jennifer went behind the scenes, and worked at booking agencies, took on administrative assistant jobs, and is currently a student at DeVRY, majoring in Business Information Systems. When Jennifer performs, she commands the stage, and captivates her audience with powerful vocals, and confidence in stage presence. Not only is she professional, but she is also very focused, and has a strong belief in God. She wants to make a lasting impression on the music industry, and represent African-American Women in a positive light. In May of 2001 she started a non-profit organization called Definition of Virtue. This powerful group inspires young girls to be Proverbs 31 women. They have a Scholarship Fund, and they cater to exotic dancers, and young girls who have been led astray in Metropolitan Atlanta. "Being an artist is about letting God use you as a vessel to inspire", says Jennifer. "And I feel that I have been chosen for this mission."
