Award-winning vocalist, JOLYNN, is a fresh and comforting voice, an inspiring story, and an encouraging soul. A mother of 10 and mentor to many more, JoLynn brings honesty and new sweetness to familiar music. In raising her 10 musical children, she inspired many of them to become musical artists themselves. As the matriarch of The Yates Family Singers, JoLynn went on to win solo competitions such as Sparrow Records Competition and the People’s Choice Award at the Songbird Talent Challenge. JoLynn’s story will inspire you, and her current project will bring you fond memories of love songs from years past. Her re-imaginings of classic love songs combine influences from Linda Ronstadt, Olivia Newton-John, Whitney Houston and others, with the magical, unique touch of JoLynn’s easy-listening vocals.
