Jeanri is a Haitian singer and also a citizen of the world...lives in Chicago...he is an activist, songwriter, composer,...he sings for hope and justice in his home country, his adoptive country and around the world. At a very young age he started singing in one of the most-well-renowned gospel group (CHOEUR CELESTE) A Capella in Haiti where he was born and raised. In 1998 he recorded one of the best ever recorded album in a cappella music in Haiti with five(5) hits compiling an astounding 18 months including 9 weeks # 1 hit (tande vwam'm) which is creole for "listen" in the top 20 on the (HGAC)Haitian gospel acappella chart, and over 6 consecutive months at the top 10 of the (HGM) Haitian gospel music. Unfortunately, three of his siblings would not see those days because all of them passed away within a year and a half.
