Today we’d like to introduce you to Janette Alexander.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I have been singing for as long as I can remember. In kindergarten, I fell in love with the song ‘My Girl’ by The Temptations and couldn’t stop singing it. From there I began singing in church choirs, for friends and family, coworkers and much more. My passion for music and singing has grown with me over the years. I’ve always imagined that I would put out music but I just didn’t think it would happen right now. I went from being a shy little girl who had to hype herself up to sing, to people all over listening to my music. It’s been a beautiful journey.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road. If I’m being transparent, I actually dealt with a lot of insecurities as far as my voice is concerned. I oftentimes found myself comparing my voice to others around me and well-known celebrities. You know how people say “You are your toughest critic” well that saying was completely true for me. At one point I had even decided that I didn’t want to sing or perform at all. That was short lived though. Thank the heavens! Music is a part of me that I never want to give up. When I get discouraged I just think about all of the people who have supported and encouraged me along the way and it makes it all worth it.
Tell us more about your work.
My EP, Love Like Water is an ode to my husband. Though we are still newlyweds (a little over six months married) we have experienced so much together. The songs are 100% written and made out of love. It talks about the lust, the love, the fear of moving too fast, the tough days and ultimately explains what a love like water can do to you. A love like water will purify you, help you grow, hydrate you, and heal you. I feel like a lot of people are able to resonate with the lyrics of the song in one way or another. It’s all relatable and realistic. Love Like Water, the EP is currently on Spotify, Amazon, Google, iTunes, Apple Music, iHeartRadio, YouTube and more!
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I wouldn’t say that “luck” has gotten me where I am, because it hasn’t. I’ve worked hard to get to where I am currently and I ‘ll continue to push myself. I do however feel that I am extremely fortunate, lucky and blessed to have the friends, family and support system that I have.
