The Jones Sisters J4
The Jones Sisters, the daughters of Devin and Genesa H. Jones, are a group of young ladies from Marrero, Louisiana, the West bank of New Orleans. Born with the gift of music, Kayla, Kiera, Dalia, and Dejon, has been singing since before they could say their alphabets. They are all highly disciplined students and are active in church activities, such as, Sunday school, the Sunshine Band, the choir, and many others. It started when they were infants listening to their parents sing and play music at home and in church.
Both parents are active in church with the mother being the choir director and the father being a musician. They would match tones perfectly with their parents as babies. Their parents realized the gift and began to nurture it. All the parts were there to form a group with soprano, alto, and tenor harmonies. Other musical gifts were displayed when Kiera began to play piano. She played so well that she became the musician for The Jones Sisters.
Their very first concert performance was opening for Kierra “KiKi” Sheard. Their ages were 8, 6, 3, and 2 at that time. They sang and Kiera played Mary Mary’s hit song “Heaven”. Since then, they have sung at many churches, schools, festivals, and other community events. They were also featured guests at a local news station, and The House of Blues Gospel Brunch. The Jones Sisters have traveled across the country singing the gospel and using their God given gift.
Their parents declare that they are good kids who need little discipline when it comes to singing, because it is in their hearts. They have been influenced by many artists in the gospel industry, including generations of family members before them. Their favorite artists are The Clark Sisters, Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin, and Take 6. If anybody would ask them “who are you singing for” their reply would be, “I am singing for God”.
On May 1, 2010 they released their very first CD single title, “O’ Give Thanks”, which is currently playing on the radio. The Jones Sisters (J4) new release CD title: “Not Ashamed” is now available online at cdbaby.com. “J4” will be performing in the upcoming 2012 New Orleans Jazz Heritage Festival in April. Let’s see where God takes them next. To God, Be the glory!
