Jean Morisson

Posted: Updated:

Jean Morisson is a singer, song writer and a girl who rocks out with the best. She's from SoFlo and making us proud. Our own resident rock star Shireen Sandoval tells us why.

Meet "glitter girl" Jean Morisson.

Jean: "In every show I would throw glitter all over the audience."

She's currently traveling the world, but South Florida will always be home.

Jean: "This is like my home, so being here is kinda like I never left. I never would've become the artist that I am now, had I not started from here."

Jean started her music career at the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale and she's come a long way.

Jean: "Since playing here, I've toured. I've been on MTV. I've been on video game soundtracks. I've been to Europe, we've done so many shows."

It all started when Grammy award winning artist and producer Nile Rogers found Jean at CBGB's in New York.

Nile: "She walks out on stage in something like a T-shirt dress and she goes, is it hot in here or is it just me, and she pours milk over her head, it was amazing."

After the discovery, Jean was featured on a video game.

Jean: "On the launch title for the Xbox 360 Perfect Dark Zero, which is a really big deal.

The video premiered on the jumbotron in Times Square.

Jean: "Three weeks prior we had no money, we're there as a band. We're starving, then one month later, I'm standing there in Times Square with Nile Rogers, signing autographs on the street while they premiere my video and it was just like, 'How did I get here?' It was incredible."

Jean says working with Nile is a dream.

Jean: "Of all the mentors you could pick for yourself, who else would you pick but Nile. He has worked with everybody from Madonna to Daft Punk to Duran Duran, and he's had such an influence on my sound, just from all of this music that he's done, to his fingerprint on my music."

He turned out to be a fan and a mentor.

Jean: "My single that I worked with Nile Rogers hit Billboard, so that was very exciting.

Check out Adam Lambert loving the song Jean's latest video, "The Fight" is getting lots of talk.

Jean: "Vernon Reid from Living Colour played on it and it was just amazing, I'm so exciting about what's to come which is a lot."

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    I could see the door to the jet bridge closing, despite the fact that I was just a few yards away from it.

    It's all about the seven year itch for Maxi Priest. That's how long its been since the Reggae singer has released an album, but he got those creative juices flowing and he's back with "Easy to Love."

    If I Stay is based on a best seller. Chloe Grace Moretz stars as a teen cellist facing tough choices, both here and in the space between life and death. Chloe and her co-star Jamie Blackley are telling Deco: bring some tissues, it's a tear jerker.

    Kindness and charm, unlike the people that live in Sin City, and i'm not talking about Vegas either. Things have changed in the town of Sin as in the motion picture while others have stayed the same. The cast of the movie told Deco what's new in part two.?
