Few of our young Haitian artists have a successful career and international recognition, and among those who have it, we must highlight J. Perry, who is certainly one of the most talented of them.
Jonathan Perry nicknamed J. Perry, is a 30 year old Haitian singer and composer.
From an early age he set himself on a musical path, taking piano lessons and singing. He marked his first steps in the Haitian Music Industry (HMI) with his first single “Staring at Your Body,” which was released in 2009.
In 2011 he released his first album, “One Life to Live.” “One Life to live” features singles such as “Holding on” and”Dekole” — his biggest hit in the HMI and for which he was awarded a gold disk plaque by former President Michel Joseph Martelly. Dekole also inspired the theme of Haiti’s 2012 carnival.
