Well known for her powerhouse vocals as a finalist in season eight of “American Idol,” Jasmine Murray has worked hard to overcome her fears of not being good enough. “We all have chinks in our armor,” says Jasmine. “Some are clearly seen from the outside. Mine were on the inside; I secretly battled fear and anxiety. I know it looks like I had it all together, but I didn't. Jasmine's journey began in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), where she fought for life for an entire month after her mother nearly died giving birth. She grew up in a single-parent home, the youngest of five siblings. Jasmine is passionate about music.. “Music has been a part of my life since I was a little girl,” she says. “My mom would play Gospel, Pop and R&B-she had a good mix as well, playing Yolanda Adams and CeCe Winans to Sade and Toni Braxton.”
