Role in TN Kids: Background singer

“Always give 100%”

How did you first start getting into music/dancing?

I started singing in church at a young age. I entered into the music business at the age of nineteen auditioning by singing in a elevator in NY in order to sing backup for the artist named Joe Thomas. I anded a recorded deal in 1996 with Island Black Music which merged with Def Jam to end my deal! I continued my journey working in several studio sessions with major recording artist writing, producing vocals, backing vocals and co music production.

First concert?

Commissioned - a gospel group

Who's your biggest influence? Idol?

My father - Jack E. King Jr.

He was an amazing singer and always gave 100 % even when it wasn't needed!

Rest in peace, daddy.

Nickname? (And why?)

“JK” and it’s one too many LOL.

On tour, you can't survive without (these 3 things):

1. Sneakers

2. Music equipment

3. Fish

What's been your favorite place that you’ve visited so far and why?

I must say Iceland. It looks like another planet - omg so different and amazingly beautiful.

Favorite moment on #JT2020Tour?

Favorite moment is doing "Poison" with JT and Aaron Camper.

What's your favorite song to dance/play?

“Let's Stay Together” by Al Green

What message would you give to an aspiring musician/dancer?

Continue to work on being great at what you’re trying to accomplish in any aspect of life! Never take no for an answer - let it be your drive to success. Always remember that the company you keep is the company you make, so make your circle of individuals your life teachers.

Do you have your own personal project?

I'm working on my 1st solo album, and it will be completed soon.

Anyone you want to give a shout-out to?

To the TNKids! I love each and everyone of you. You all truly inspire me to be great. And most of all, I can’t forget my wife and children. I love you.

    Mr. King-
    I can't tell you how many times I've watched the video I shot of you doing the Poison routine in Vegas!
    It makes me smile all over every time I watch it, my body just HAS to dance to it and so much of that is because of you!
    I was lucky enough to catch the tour 5 times, but tried to immerse myself in each experience in stead of paying attention to my phone camera so I chose not to video most stuff. But when I got such a great seat (2nd row just right of center) for the show on the 1/2/12015 I couldn't help myself. I knew that's where most of your dancing would take place. Poison has got to be almost my favorite stand-out-moment (but seriously that's like asking a Mom to choose a favorite child)-and you (JT & Mr. Camper) blew the doors off the jet!
    For the 1/2/2015 show I was at the tables with my sister right by JT's momma & family. Had fun talking to his friend Romeo who was so nice, made me feel like I was a friend. I still can't get over watching you all dance on the moving platform.
    Was there a job interview question addressing any fear of heights? You all make it look so easy and so, so, fun.
    Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate all the hard work, practice and fresh attitude you all displayed EVERY SINGLE TIME! Every time I saw the show it was like the first time. So fresh, energetic & perfect! It has created a lasting, gotta-pinch-myself kind of exciting experience.
    I wish you great success in all your future endeavors.
    Thank You!
