JoJo Performs “Say Love” with PS22 Chorus


JoJo love the kids!  The Atlantic Records singer has been promoting her “tringle” of singles with appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Late Night.” She recently visited Public School 22 in Staten Island and joined the PS22 elementary school chorus for a special rendition of her ballad “Say Love.”

JoJo starts off acapella before the fifth graders add their beautiful harmonies. When it was all done, JoJo was ready to take them on tour with her.

“This was amazing,” she gushed. “I wish they were on the road with me. Why can’t we get them all passports and why can’t we travel the world together?”

The PS22 chorus performed at the Oscars in 2011 and has covered songs including Eminem’s “Not Afraid” and Nicki Minaj’s “Marilyn Monroe.”

JoJo Stuns With Performance of “Save My Soul” on “Seth Meyers”


One of the few people we’re anticipating a full album from currently is the very talented JoJo. If her past efforts from her youth up until her most recent delivery of the ‘Tringle‘ project aren’t enough to validate our reasoning, seeing her do live and acoustic performances should be good enough.

Marking her first network performance of the incredible single “Save My Soul” on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” last night, the powerhouse vocalist held up to the standards that we’ve all secretly set for her.

Dressed in all black and backed by some singers who exude #BlackGirlMagic, we absolutely can’t wait to see what JoJo hands out this year for both new and old fans to bask in.

While we’re sure that she’ll have the backing that she needs this time around, we’re hoping “Save My Soul” gets the respect it deserves!

Take a look at the performance below!

JoJo Delivers Acoustic Performance of “Save My Soul”


Now that we officially have JoJo off of hiatus, the young singer is wasting NO time giving us what we missed over the years.

Delivering an exceptional acoustic performance of her newest single “Save My Soul,” the powerful vocalist has us in awe every time she debuts one of these. Emotionally filled and vocally impressive, the performance is a great representation of her talent.

Talking about the song, JoJo explains, “‘Save My Soul’ is a song about addiction, and I grew up seeing addiction very close to me; Both my parents have struggled with it. So as a kid, you don’t kinda know when the bottom is going to fall through or what’s gonna happen next. I’ve also struggled with feeling powerless to definitely a situation; I’ve felt powerless to a person, and just, you know, certain things in life. So, it’s when you feel out of control, that’s what it’s about. To me, it’s like the addict singing to whatever it is that they feel powerless to.”

Video: JoJo – Save My Soul


JoJo kicks off the new year in a very personal way. Following the visuals for “When Love Hurts” and “Say Love,” the powerhouse singer debuts her most personal video yet for “Save My Soul.” The gripping video was directed by her friend Zelda Williams and is dedicated to JoJo’s father, who lost his battle with addiction late last year. Shot in the desert of Joshua Tree National Park in California, the song tackles all forms of addiction and its effects on people and those around them.

“‘Save My Soul’ is about addiction. Of all kinds. I wanted to convey the feeling of powerlessness I’ve felt in my life in an uncomplicated way and show a range of what it might look like for others who’ve been there,” explained JoJo. “We filmed this video about a month before my father lost his decades long battle with addiction. His death honestly felt like it came out of nowhere…and yet I had been mourning him for years…if that makes any sense. I know all too well from seeing it around me that the fight is not easy. It’s every day. All consuming. I’m not mad at my dad. I love him and I’m sad. He is my greatest heartbreak.”

Williams, whose late father Robin Williams also battled addiction, added, “To say the ‘Save My Soul’ video means a lot to me would be an understatement of stupendous proportions…it’s not even our shared experiences with addiction and loved ones who suffered from them, though that is the very real inspiration behind this song and video. ‘Save My Soul’ is Jo’s very real, very honest ode to addiction, and in her expressing her truth, I wanted to give others the opportunity to do the same.”

JoJo Gives Stunning Acoustic Performance of “Say Love”


JoJo was gone for a minute, but now she’s back with the jump-off, clearly.

After the release of her three-song rollout – which hit our ears in August – the talented Boston native has been on an ever-growing high since. Debuting the visual for “Say Love” last month, it’s only right that she now releases the acoustic version of the Harmony Samuels-produced fan favorite.

“Every song on the album is true to me. I can’t sing something – whether I wrote it or not – that I can’t feel. And I had a girlfriend that was in the studio with me and she was going through that exact thing. She had been the first to say ‘I love you’ and he didn’t say ‘I love you’ back. She was crying as I was recording it, and I knew that I had tapped into something and I was putting myself in her shoes; I wanted to feel what she was feeling,” JoJo said of the single.

Absolutely stunning, the raw recording of JoJo proves that she’s surely one of the most talented vocalists of her generation.

Take a listen to the compelling and heart-wrenching performance below:
