With her casual grace and quiet confidence, Jennifer Paige seems the type person who can take virtually any excitement in stride. But when her single “Crush” climbed to No. 1 in 16 countries, selling more than 11 million copies worldwide and going 5x-platinum, even Paige admits that the speed of the song’s success caught her by surprise. Paige’s arrival at the top of the charts may have been sudden, but her life in music had been years in the making.
She was introduced to all styles of music at an early age by her music-loving parents, and began playing piano at the age of 8. By 10, she was performing with her older brother in local coffeehouses and restaurants in her hometown of Marietta, Georgia. In high school, Paige studied Voice, Dance and Theater at the prestigious Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts. And so the journey began!
