Janelle's official Blog home!
Janelle grew up in the small French town of Legal, Alberta. By the time she was 5 years old it was apparent that this sparkling, vibrant little girl had an extraordinary gift. From a very early age, her mother and grandmother taught her old French folk songs, after which came plenty of exposure singing in Church. By age 14, Janelle had become the lead singer with a contemporary Christian band, hosting evenings in Edmonton, Alberta that regularly attracted 300-600 youth.
Janelle's first solo album, "New Day", produced in Nashville, Tennessee, was released at WYD2002. In 2005, Janelle released a new single "Be Not Afraid - Open Wide Your Heart" in honor of Pope John Paul II. The release of this song resulted in over 25 radio and television interviews, including an appearance on NBC Dateline following the passing of His Holiness, John Paul II.
