We are pleased to announce our headliner this year is the very talented J-Perry!
Jonathan Perry, AKA J-Perry, grew up in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In November 2011, J-Perry’s debut album “One Life to Live” was released in Haiti. The first song on the album, “Dekole” exploded to unparalleled airplay, airing 765 times in one week on local Haitian radios. Awarded Hit Song of the Decade in Haiti, Dekole was chosen as the theme song for the 2012 Haitian Carnival, which was renamed Ayiti ap Dekole in honor of the J-Perry song. He concluded a phenomenal year by being named 2012 Haitian Artist of the Year and accepting an invite to the private home of international superstar Wyclef Jean —also a Zumba collaborator— who publicly put his stamp of approval on J-Perry’s music with a Facebook video and additional social-media postings.
J-Perry -a dedicated fitness guru himself, who appreciates the “exercise in disguise” that is Zumba Fitness— has performed at various Zumba Fitness Conferences in Los Angeles, France and Orlando. J-Perry’s recent collaboration with Zumba is his recent song tilted “Bouje” with French-Caribbean superstar Admiral T.
J-Perry since has toured the Caribbean islands, Europe, Canada, Brazil and the United States.
