Since childhood, Jolie has carried a song in her heart, humming tunes and singing during most of her waking hours. When Jolie entered the world with her right hand outstretched, 'reaching for the stars,' her mother saw it as a sign of the future. At the early age of 3, that first sign of talent was discovered. By age ten, her mother encouraged her to join the church choir and enrolled her in private voice lessons.
A graduate of LaGuardia High School of Music & the Arts in NYC, The Hartt School in CT, Loyola College in MD, and pursuing her Doctorate in Vocal Performance at UCONN, Jolie taught music in the public schools of Hartford, Connecticut for many years. In 1998, shebegan singing professionally with regional opera companies, which eventually lead to performances in the US, Europe and Australia. Currently,
Jolie enjoys a busy performing schedule and her work as a Visiting
Professor of Music at Texas Southern University in Houston.
"Sharing the gift of song is my destiny - whether it be through
opera, spirituals, gospel, jazz, musical theater or any
other style of music. It's all about sharing a story..."
