Heavenly Joy Jerkins is an American 5 years old prodigy singer from Calabasas, California. Heavenly first got famous for her America’s Got Talent audition in June 2015; the original copy of her audition on Youtube has received over 7 million views in 20 days. Why? Well, other than being incredibly cute, Heavenly Joy Jerkins sings very well.
Heavenly Joy is the daughter of the record producer, songwriter and musician Rodney Jerkins and the actress and singer Joy Charity Enriquez. She has four siblings and they are all in her mom’s recent Youtube video Hallelujah. Let us meet the Jerkins:
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Is this the only celebrity marriage which seems to be working out? It is possible; the Jerkin’s family is lovely and the talent runs through many generations. Rodney’s father was an Evangelical pastor and he began playing piano at 5 years of age, following his brother and father who both played at church gatherings. According to Wikipedia,
Rodney Jerkins has collaborated with a very broad range of popular artists, including Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Luther Vandross, Jennifer Lopez, Toni Braxton, Destiny’s Child, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears
Heavenly’s mom, Joy Charity Enriquez has appeared on the television series 7th Heaven and also starred in films such as Chasing Papi and Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure.
How is this relevant to Heavenly Joy Jerkin’s career?
Heavenly has the right genes and the family support and the artistic background going well for her. It is no wonder than she seems to be singing so naturally and fearlessly on the stage and to have a very easy going conversation with the judges.
I am certainly looking forward to her next performance.
The question that everyone is asking is: Why hasn’t Heavenly Joy Jerkins made it through the judge cuts?
Well, there is no official answer from America’s Got Talent, but the unofficial answer is: “she has either withdrew from the competition or was eliminated in an unaired judge cuts segment”.
Everyone is disappointed not to see all that cuteness sing and act again, but I am pretty sure she will somehow make it back to the screens one day :).
