About the Artist
Beyond a love of music, passion for connection drives singer/songwriter Janely Ramos. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Janely serves as a worship leader, recording artist and a voice for teen girls everywhere.
I have been singing since the age of 7 and leading worship since I was 13. Singing had always been my comfort and form of expression. But in my middle to late teens my love for singing and leading worship crumbled apart when I began to develop an anxiety for the stage and every social interaction. Out of nowhere, I became extremely insecure, unsure – questioning everything about myself, which left me feeling vulnerable in front of others. I wanted nothing to do with people, and especially nothing to do with singing. So I isolated myself and turned down every opportunity and invitation to sing. What once was my love, became my nightmare.
I lived under this fear for a couple years before I broke down – I couldn’t take it anymore. I knew I had a special calling over my life and so much to give but I couldn’t seem to look my fears in the eye and conquer them- at least not alone. I fell on my knees one night and cried out to God asking him to heal me, and save me from my fears. I heard in a voice not my own “trust me, I am with you, and where you fall short, I will carry you.” I knew at that point that I needed to just bungie jump, I knew I had God by my side and that I was not alone and so I began to say “yes” to the things that terrified me.
I began leading worship again, praying publicly, and ultimately finding who I am, my passion and drive. My love for singing grew again and every time I step foot on any stage I am forever reminded of God’s miraculous power to heal and save! What I do today and what I continue to do is a miracle!
In 2012, Janely began touring with an organization called Tiaras. Tiaras shares a message of self-worth and empowerment with pre-teen and teenage girls — a story that Janely herself relates to very strongly. Inspired by the Tiaras girls, Janely spent 2015 focused on creating and releasing her debut EP, Between Me & You (a portion of all EP proceeds goes back to Tiaras). You can check out the EP here.
