jenny-loveIn honor of Women’s History Month, Miami Dade College (MDC), will present numerous activities, including the upcoming concert, A Night with Jenny Love, at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 22, at the Kendall Campus. Love, an MDC alumna, will perform hits from great female performing artists.

Born and raised in a very black-beans-and-rice culture, it was here in Miami that Love developed her musical tastes and interests. She began classical and jazz vocal training at age 13, while also performing with her father’s six-piece Latin band. In her teenage years, Love sang in gospel choirs throughout Miami and, with this experience, later created her own blend of Latin funk with a twist of powerhouse southern soul. Her candid readiness to experiment with musical genres has had a profound influence on the direction of her musical journey.
