Jadyn Maria, age 21, was born in Puerto Rico, then was raised in Nashville, Tennessee. But becoming a country star was the farthest thing from her mind. By the age of two, she was singing in front of an audience and music became her life. At 15, this self-proclaimed "workaholic" began writing her own songs, beginning a life-long dream to record a pop album in both English and Spanish. It comes as no surprise that she counts among her performing heroes Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey.
