12-Year-Old Singer, Aspiring Brain Surgeon, Has Big Dreams

first_imgTracey Danielle Jones debuted on the music scene at the age when little girls begin sewing clothes for their Barbie dolls and playing house – at just eight years old.Instead, young Tracey was working hard on releasing her first album ‘Just Like You’, a great compilation of music that sub-consciously began when she was just two years old. From listening to songs being played in the car during car rides with her parents Victor Daniel Jones and Maryann Roberts Jones, to then singing along with these songs, Tracey grew her musical gift, not knowing she was turning herself into a gifted gospel artist that today is the proud owner of two albums and five awards.A video of her version of Whitney Houston’s “I Look to You” made social media followers around the world fall in love with the voice of a little angel, who by then could sing any gospel song as beautifully as the song writers themselves.Having been discovered, Tracey was invited to Liberia on tour in August of 2012, a first time experience for the child, who had never seen her parents’ homeland. In Liberia, she met other Liberian children of all ages, ministers and Vice President Joseph Boakai.With her newly released album ‘Give Your Praise’ and her stunning change in appearance during her emergence at the Liberian Entertainment Awards ceremony, Tracey is the talk of the town.You should probably know who she is:Who is Tracey?Tracey Danielle Jones was born in Bensalem, Pennsylvania (USA), and she is the daughter of two Liberian refugees. She has three brothers and a 19-year-old sister. Tracey was discovered by the Liberian community when she published her version of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Look to You’, which has close to half a million views on YouTube and thousands of likes.“Other than singing, I also want to become a brain surgeon. In order for me to become that, I need high grades, and that requires high studies,” the 12-year-old told LIB Life. “Since 2012 when I left Liberia, I’ve released my second album, ‘Give Your Praise’, and I’ve won five musical awards off the album.” Her father tells LIB Life that she is an honor roll student, scoring all A’s in the 7th grade. As parents, he and the child’s mother are just encouraging her to do what she loves to do with her career, Tracy’s father, Victor Jones said. We [stress the importance of] her education and teach her to be a good child.”When asked how she fits her career in with school, Tracey replied confidently, “When I come from school, I find something to eat and then I study. I usually don’t perform while school is open, and perform while school is closed, and only take piano lessons on the weekend.” Why is everybody talking about her?Tracey’s angelic voice has created a demand in the Liberian community, who want to hear more from her. Her 2012 Liberia tour set the record straight that what viewers heard on her ‘I Look to You’ version on YouTube was indeed bona fide.But being the youngest Liberian gospel artist, people were buzzing about her way before her tour to Liberia. Tracy has received the most awards as a child singer than any other Liberian child singer.“I actually love to sing and my parents don’t force me to sing but encourage me to do it. As long as I have stuff to play and have time for myself, singing is okay,” Tracey told LIB Life.What has Tracey been up to?“I’ve established my foundation called the Tracey Foundation to raise money to build a children’s hospital. During the Ebola crisis, I sent clothes and food through an organization in Liberia; and now I’m still raising money and selling CDs to build the hospital,” she explained.“I would like to give encouraging words to those who want to become somebody,” the 12-year-old, ultra mature for her age, concluded her interview with LIB Life. “Young children, if someone is telling you that you can’t do something, just continue going forward because you’re going to make it.”The young singer and philanthropist is appealing to Liberians of good will, development partners and the Liberian Government for 15 to 20 acres of land (gratis or at reasonable price) on which to build the Tracey Foundation Children’s Hospital. Donors and volunteers are welcome. The Tracey Foundation is open to partnering with churches, organizations and individuals. She has already started fundraising through concert tours and selling lemonade and chocolate bars at various Wal-Marts in North Carolina.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

10 puppies stolen from pet store

first_imgA video tape of the burglary was erased. It was unclear if the burglar deliberately erased the tape, Ro said. A security guard was in the bathroom during the robbery, Ro said. There are no suspects and the investigation is ongoing, Gonzalez said. The first burglary occurred between 11:45 p.m. Nov. 6 and 3:30 a.m. Nov. 7 with 20-22 puppies worth approximately $30,000 stolen, Lt. Doug Fetteroll of the sheriff’s department’s Norwalk Station said. The stolen puppies in the first burglary included teacup Yorkshire terriers, Shih-Tzus, Chihuahuas, Maltese and Pekingese, Ro told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. LA MIRADA – Approximately 10 pedigree puppies worth a combined $15,000 were taken from a La Mirada pet store early today, the second time the store has been burglarized this month, authorities said. Sheriff’s deputies responding to an alarm at 1:38 a.m. at the Puppy Love pet store at 14766 Beach Blvd., near Rosecrans Avenue, found the front door smashed and puppies missing, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Liza Gonzalez. Security bars and the store’s lock were also smashed, said owner Paul Ro, who offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the thief’s arrest. “I’ve got to catch him — this evil guy,” said Ro, who has owned the store for one year. “I’ve lost 30 dogs in two weeks. Everything is a mess.” Left behind were a year-old Yorkshire terrier, a 7-month-old Maltese and a 3-month-old Pomeranian,plus Ro’s cocker spaniel, the Tribune reported. Because the thief steered clear of the older dogs, “I think this guy had knowledge of dogs,” Ro told the Tribune. Insurance covered the losses from the first burglary, Ro said, who said he is awaiting word whether today’s robbery will be covered. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

EXCLUSIVE: FA chief tells talkSPORT nationality doesn’t matter in manager search

first_imgFootball Association chief executive Martin Glenn has told talkSPORT nationality will not be a factor in the England manager search, as all he wants is a coach who’s ‘going to win us a tournament or two.’Roy Hodgson announced his resignation as manager minutes after the defeat to Iceland on Monday night, which knocked out the Three Lions from Euro 2016.It was arguably the nadir of Hodgson’s spell in charge of England – a spell which has had many more lows than highs.He won just three international tournament matches – two at Euro 2012 and one at this edition – and coached the team who finished the 2014 World Cup bottom of their group.The 68-year-old’s resignation was not a surprise, and Glenn is now heading the search for the next man to take the high-pressure job, with the willingness to look abroad should the best option not be an Englishman.Speaking to talkSPORT’s Nigel Adderley, Glenn responded when asked which manager he wants to hire: “One who’s going to win us a tournament or two!“I’m not [bothered about nationality]. I think it’s the best person for the job.“Clearly an English person would be great, as it’s an inspiration for other young managers, but you look at the Premier League and there are not many of them there.“So there’s a question there as to where’s the pipeline?“But look, it’s someone who can inspire the team, and can harness all the resources the English Football Association can bring to its national team.“We’re one of the richest associations in the world, and we’ve got a fabulous network of football happening in England – from the Premier League all through the pyramid.“That’s got to be for us to harness. We’ve got to find a way of doing it to make us world builders.”last_img read more

Man became aggressive with Gardaí following fight

first_imgCOURTS: A man who claimed he had been attacked, refused to heed instructions from Gardaí to leave the scene and was arrested. Justin Bonner, with an address at 17 B Shopping Centre Flats, Ballybofey appeared at Letterkenny District Court on Thursday morning. The court heard how on July 7th, 2015 – Gardaí witnessed two males acting aggressively towards each other.Gardaí intervened, but the defendant was irate, agitated and aggressive following the row, and attempted to ran after the male he claim attacked him.Gardaí attempted to calm Mr Bonner down on several occasions, but he then became aggressive towards them – and he was subsequently arrested and charged with a public order offence.Solicitor for the defendant Kieran Gorman told the court that his client was aggrieved on the night in question, but realises what he did was stupid.“My client is in his 20’s, and is a father of one child, and he wants to apologise to the Gardaí involved in the incident, he’s never been involved in this type of behaviour before.“He was aggrieved because the other party had attacked him and started the row, but he’s aware now he should have left the Gardaí to deal with it.The court were told that he had fifteen previous convictions, most of which were for road traffic offences, including a disqualification from driving for a period of two years.He had no previous public order offences prior to the charge he appeared on, but all other offences were alcohol related.Judge Paul Kelly asked Kieran Dillion, ‘Does your client have a bit of a drink problem’?Kieran Dillion resp0onded by saying, “I don’t think so, he was working at the time of some of these offences, but is employed as a full-time labourer now, and has a good work ethic, he’s been doing well for the last 6 to 7 weeks and wants to put all of this behind him.”Judge Paul Kelly fined the defendant €250 with three months to pay.Man became aggressive with Gardaí following fight was last modified: July 22nd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:aggressivearrestedcourtsFightfinedGardaJustin BonnernewsPUBLIC ORDERlast_img read more
