How Did Jessica Betts Become Rich?

Jessica Betts was born in June 1982 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. She has five siblings, two brothers and three sisters. Betts is a practicing Christian thanks to her family and began singing at Church and Church-based events early in her life. She cites her grandmother, a Church Minister, as her source of inspiration to pursue music: her grandmother’s support led her to move to New York and later to Los Angeles in order to pursue a career in music.

It seems she has always been destined for greatness; in the late 1990s, at only eighteen years old, she shadowed the internationally acclaimed Boyz II Men, who then signed her to their label Stonecreek Records in 1998.

In 2000, while signed to Restless Records, Jessica Betts released her debut album “You Can’t Resist” where she was featured in 3 songs: Get Up, Don’t Give A Damn and Gotta Do It Right. She shortly left this record label as she felt like they were not doing enough to push and promote her album.

Her road to fame and stardom properly began in 2005 when, at 23 years old, she won a reality television singing competition titled “The Road To Stardom with Missy Elliott” – whose host and the prominent judge was Missy Elliott. Since the show, she has gone ahead to work with producers like Timbaland and Brian Michael Cox.

Betts released an album for her Japanese audience named “Jessie Pearl” in 2008, but it didn’t gain much attention. She later attempted to start her own record label, but this bore no fruits.

Jessica Betts was chosen to be a BET Music Matters artist in 2011. In 2013 her 2000s song “Get Up” was featured in Tyler Perry’s infamous comedy series, Big Momma’s House’s soundtrack. That same year she opened Rebellious Soul tour for Kimberly Michelle Pate.

Jessica Betts released her album in June 25, 2014 entitled #LLCoolJess, a play on the well-known rapper and actor LL Cool J’s name, that included tracks featuring Dirdy Red and Temper.

In 2018 she had a guest appearance in the Television show, Claws, playing a character called Nadege – a bartender and singer.

Other tracks and singles that she has released include: “Sticking U”, “Earthquake”, “Gimmie Dat”, “Holding On”, “Do It All Night ft. LottaZay” and “Take You Back”.

In October 2020, she was invited on Good Morning America to debut her song, “Catch Me”, – which was off her 2018 non-album singles. The song’s music video featured her wife, Niecy Nash, in her wedding dress. Due to her relationship with Nash, the song gained popularity, and in 2021 she performed the song at the GLAAD Media Awards – a media award ceremony for creative people within the LGBTQIA+ community.

She has appeared and featured in the movies Code 11-14, the Scream Queens, the Rebellious Soul: The Musical, the television shows The BET Honors and Entertainment Tonight.

Betts and Nash joined Jada Pickett Smith’s popular Facebook talk show, The Red Table, in March of 2021 to discuss their union, sexualities and coming out to friends, family and fans. They shared intimate details about their marriage and relationship, including the fact that they got engaged mutually while skinny dipping together.
