Jocelyn Knight's Biography. Velvet........... Pure magic! Her voice is as adaptable as any I've ever heard. She is capable of ANYTHING anyone can write for her. These are just a few of the superlatives used to describe the astounding vocalist Jocelyn Knight………. Jocelyn first displayed signs of her talent when she began performing her own song and dance routines as a 5 year old. Jocelyn was heavily influenced by her mother who was a professional singer in the 70's and she would often join her mother when she was rehearsing her show. Even as a young girl, Jocelyn was talented enough to help her mother by doing backing and lead vocals, so encouraged by her mother to take singing more seriously, Jocelyn went on to join the choir in senior school and whilst doing this, she set up and ran a teenage dance troupe. In her early twenties, Jocelyn joined a contemporary Christian band and performed around the UK and Europe for a number of years. Whilst performing for her Christian band, Jocelyn also set up a Motown band to play in her local church to celebrate the new Millennium. As a vocalist Jocelyn is a Joy to listen to, but her unique selling point is her ability to compliment her vocals with her professional dance routine. Even by her own admission Jocelyn is a non-smoking, non-drinking fitness aficionado Her mantra is 'fit in body, fit in mind' and this all-consuming attitude to her profession is what has kept her at the top for so many years and why she has a stunning physique that perfectly complements her powerful yet angelic voice. After 20 years touring experience as a solo artist and working with live bands Jocelyn's vocals seem to mature just like a fine wine and her awesome talent just gets better and better. She is a JOY to work with and she is one artist who certainly doesn't get what the 'Diva stuff' that plagues some lesser artists in the industry, is all about. Jocelyn has her standards, but she's a realist who understands that the world isn't perfect, her Christian upbringing has taught her humility and to treat others as she wishes to be treated and that's why Jocelyn comes as the complete and ultimate entertainment package.
