Janice was born in New Jersey and comes from what she describes as "a churchy background". Her father was a pastor at the church Whitney Houston attended, and it was hearing her sing that inspired Janice to pursue her own music dreams. Following her breakout with success with Dreamer she opened for Tina Turner during her farewell tour, before family matters overtook her life, forcing her to leave that all behind.
She now lives in Florida with her two children, working as a music teacher. Whilst she enjoys her family life, she now believes the time is right to show the world her music talent, and "for the public to know the face behind the song" that brought her that success.
