After winning Dubai Music Week, Xriss Jor and her brand new puppy Molly, rushed straight to the 2Famous.TV Radio Studio to announce that not only has she signed a deal with Quincy Jones to produce her first single, but to also drop the news that she was just signed with a management company! Not to mention she’s on a first name basis with Will.I.Am, who was one of her judges.
Xriss Jor started her career at 19 as a karaoke hostess and was encouraged to take part in different singing competitions by her friends and co-workers. With her charm and powerful voice she took the audience and competitions by storm reaching the quarter finals of the Lebanese Voice before she won the Dubai Contest some weeks ago.
In addition to the interview, which you can hear soon, she performed her favorite go-to cover, At Last by Etta James, acapella.

With complete crowd control they moved thousands of Norwegian teenagers to synchronized madness. It was one of those experiences that will live for ever on hundreds of Instagram accounts. (Most of the kids here says that they don’t remember the festival from day to day). [more]
