Brave: JoJo Belts US National Anthem Following Father’s Passing

Published: Sunday 15th Nov 2015 by Sam

JoJo is mourning this weekend after losing her father to a long-illness.

Still, despite her grief, the songbird soldiered on and took centre-stage today at the NASCAR Phoenix Raceway.

There, the 24-year-old soared with a spirited rendition of the US National Anthem – the ‘Star Spangled Banner.’

Watch the rousing performance below…


Our thoughts and prayers go out to JoJo and her family.

    Her team should had really played their cards right when she was a teen. Now it’s way too late and I’m sure no one from 2004 even remembers her.

    • Ughh November 15, 2015

      Many who do remember her because clearly she is still relevant, know the struggle she went through with her record label.
      Take Aaliyah off your icon. You and your negative comments shouldn’t be associate with such a kind soul.

      • HailBeysus November 15, 2015

        @UGHH Agreed 100%

      • King Mark111 /.\ November 15, 2015

        Is that’s why she dropping mix tape instead of albums? It’s done, you only get one shot in this game and 2004 and 2006 was a LONG time ago in this fast lane game. The label issue was a few years back, so that’s not going to work.

      Tbh… But you stan for Aaliyah she wouldn’t even be remembered if she didn’t pass away.

      • King Mark111 /.\ November 15, 2015

        Lies and no one even remember Ciara. I have 3 different friends and all at different time asked me what happend to Ciara, they haven’t heard of her since 1,2 Step. So keep it moving with the what ifs. My girl is an icon, yours is a iconic flop, even to the point that you don’t even want to stan for her. Guess her next album will do even less than 20K.

        Lmao ima let you have that mark… Because i agreed with you and shouldn’t of threw that jab ????

      @KingMark111/.\ It’s pretty despicable considering it was Aaliyah’s very own uncle who kept JoJo illegally locked up in a golden handcuffs recording contract all those years she was absent from the music scene. I loved Aaliyah might I add and stan for her to this day but a true Aaliyah fan should feel some type of way that it was her family’s label that pretty much tried to ruin JoJo’s career and not gloat at the harm it’s caused her relevance. JoJo is a fighter who deserves respect and support from every BabyGirl Stan there is inc. your hating ass.

    God Bless her.. she sounded amazing i hope she’s ok thats very sad

  6. ????Queen Molly???? November 15, 2015

    When she first came out thought she was gonna be the next Mariah Carey… But her team clearly failed poor thing we have Ariana now.

    • King Mark111 /.\ November 15, 2015

      And yet you got on to me for my comment? But I thought the same. That’s my point, she could had been a female JB or a Grande or even Miley BEFORE they were even out.

      • ????Queen Molly???? November 15, 2015

        I know lol my bad its just hard to admit i agree with you ha so i had to throw my jab in ????

      • Ughh November 16, 2015

        You both are dumb. Like literally stupid. Ahaha like I’m literally frustrated by how stupid you both are. You guys should focus on yourselves more than you do these artist because its wearing on your intelligence. You can be some much more than stupid. Trust me.

    Ariana isn’t greater than Jo. Both are talented. Jojo has her own lane. She is an amazing talent.
