Angela White is a multi-talented, multi-faceted poet. She sings, has arranged music, directed choral groups and is spiritually and socially motivating. The short list does not include her passion for photography, her willingness to assist and volunteer to benefit others, and her love for family. Angela's first book of poetry, Inspired & Wired, a mature composition of poetry and life contemplations, is proof that the intertwining of confidence and faith produces explosive, irrefutable results.

Known to her fans simply as Jacnique (pronounced Zsa’nique), this San Francisco songstress embodies all the qualities of a natural superstar. She is an avid songwriter, pristine vocalist, and a runway renaissance woman. Her sultry soul music represents a harmonic groove in a world full of ambient noise and sound. Before she knew it, she began making quite a name for herself on the Bay Area club scene performing alongside well know jazz guitarist, Tony DeWayne. Soon after, she was gracing stages and receiving critical acclaim from Hollywood, CA to Las Vegas, NV and in her home town of San Francisco, CA. In 2006 Jacnique started her own independent record label and publishing company, SirenFire Music Works and SirenFire Music Publishing. The dynamic diva has recently put the finishing touches on her debut CD entitled, “Trial By Fire." This CD is an eclectic blend of Sultry Soul, Smooth Jazz and Love Songs.
