Exclusive Video: Jenna Andrews – ‘Covers’ with Maiya Norton

 

Following the release of her Kiss and Run EP, we caught up with the lovely Jenna Andrews for the second installment of our Covers series hosted by miss Maiya Norton.

Jenna shares where her love for soul music is rooted from, her experience working with legendary producers, what songs she sings in the shower, and boardroom performances. And of course, we share some resonant covers with Jenna for her reaction. As always, we close out with a live cover performance, this time of Jenna’s personally selected cover of Aaliyah’s “Hot Like Fire.” Loving Jenna’s unique spin on this classic.

Shouts to Rashid and Dave for holding down the video production!
