Ms. Charlie Jene'
     Charlie grew up in Long Beach, CA and began singing at the early age of three. Her mother also had a beautiful voice & sang as a solo artist in the church. Charlie followed in her mother's footsteps also as a solo artist. Charlie lost her sight in 1969, and moved to Cleveland, Ohio there she began her professional singing career in the early 70's. She became the first blind jazz and blues singer in that region. Charlie met and married her husband Willie, who also became her manager.

    Charlie sang in local venues throughout.  She later entered a talent contest sponsored by WJMO Radio & Charlie was chosen as one of Cleveland's best talents. While in Cleveland, she performed the opening act for Mr. Bill Wither's.  Mr. Wither's suggested that she send her music to Sussex Records in Los Angeles, California, in 1975. So to further her singing career, she moved back to Long Beach, California.

Charlie is affectionately known as "the entertainer for the stars"!

Charlie aspires to start her own nonprofit organization, entitled, "The Music Behind the Shades", which will bring about awareness & the challenges of the blind. This event would be a music festival which would unite celebrities with visual impairments, together with sponsors & the public. Services provided would include various visual exams, insight & life saving information provided by the American Foundation for the Blind, the Junior Blind Association & the American Diabetes Association. Many people are losing their sight due to a lack of awareness & risk factors with eye disorders such as Glaucoma, Retinol Pigmentosis & Macular Degeneration. The annual eye exams can greatly reduce blindness by educating people early on about eye disorders.  "We don't want people to take their precious vision & their God given gift of sight for granted". This festival will also be coupled with a mixed genre of celebrity performers throughout the day; music unites people together for a common good.  

Charlie continues to perform throughout California & wherever her music takes her for every occasion.

Charlie would like her vision to become a reality, so let's "Deal With It"!
