A native of Mechanicsville Va, JoJo began his infatuation with music at an early age. His family recounts him singing all the way back into his days of potty training. The music would continue to pour out of him at home and he would soon begin sharing his love of song with the rest of his community as a young member of his church choir. Singer would quickly turn into director in his young teens as JoJo began to direct choirs at local churches. During high school, his love for music grew exponentially when he was assigned not only as the student/assistant director of the all-male a cappella group at Hanover High School but also as the vocal coach, arranger and choreographer for Hopewell High School’s Choral Program. During his tenure in these positions, the groups received several outstanding individual and group performances awards, including Grand Championship. Upon graduating high school, he became the music director for a prominent church in the area, as well as a facilitator for vocal clinics and choral workshops in numerous public schools.
A zeal for coaching and seeing others reach their maximum potential inspired JoJo to merge his skill and passion. The result was the founding of Clarke Vocal Coaching in 2013 and the vocal training of hundreds of students and counting. Alumni of his program include social media sensations Shayla Wynn from “American Idol” and niece Bri’Anna “Bri” Harper who appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”. Recently, Joseph and his niece Bri’Anna have been viewed on a plethora of media websites singing “Ain't No Mountain High Enough” and appeared together on "The View". JoJo continues to develop his students with the goal being an increase of their vocal strength, musicality, and confidence. Coaching and development remain a key cog in the wheel of his growing “JBC” brand. He’s ready for you to sign up and “Make a choice today to be better tomorrow”.
Things kept rolling with his niece Bri’Anna as they auditioned for season 17 Americas Got talent and ultimately making it to the semi finals. Their audition was marked as the top 5 auditions of the season with Comments from the judges like “Thank you for making this show bigger than it was” and “You are the definition of joy and magic” from Simon Cowell.
