HOLA ACTOR SPOTLIGHT | Jeannie Sol

Jeannie Sol was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Raised in a humble home, she found escape through music. She found her talent for performing through talent shows in school and in after-school centers. After winning a few contests is when her luck turned around. This is where a famous producer/promoter named Jerry Masucci (of Fania Records fame) discovered her. It was through Sony Records that Jeannie released her first albumYannet Sol and Friends. With the strength of her hit “Correr A Ti” (a Spanish-language version of Whitney Houston’s “Run to You”), she toured worldwide with the likes of Ray Barretto, Celia Cruz, Grupo Niche, amongst other big bands. She then stopped in Italy and that is where she won the Miss Informissima contest in Torino, Italy. Coming back to the U.S., she hit the studios to do her second studio album Yannet Sol. During her local spots she did backup vocals for Celia Cruz, Johnny Pacheco, Sergio George, and many others. She is an exclusive backup singer for Donald Sheffey in NYC. She is currently an official member of the Lose Control Comedy Troupe, where she hones her skills of comedic timing and stage acting in theater. She most recently acted on stage in her cabaret show (titled The Jeannie Sol Show), the musical Is There Room In Your Heart?, the operetta La Llorona, In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows, and a production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Her roles in the Teatro SEA productions of Rafael Hernández… Romance and La Gloria have yielded her two HOLA Awards. She will be performing at the 2016 HOLA Awards in November.
