On November 17 the world will received a gift straight from the heart of Jenn Costantino in her Debut album, The Best Part Of Me.
Her rich voice is as golden as her hair, as stunning as her blues eyes and as warm as her heart.
A native New Yorker and Parsons School of Design graduate, Jenn love for fashion quickly gave way to her passion for music.
Jenn has studied acting as well and has had a few appearances on the television series of Ed and Law and Order, and has worked on several projects for MTV.
Through her contact with Brianna Taylor of Real World on My Space, Jenn discovered music producer Tomas Costanza. After Tomas heard some of Jenn’s music, he invited her out to LA to work on a EP. The EP was barely completed when Tomas asked for a full album.
Jenn flew back to New York and hired one of the best vocal coaches in the business, Katie Agresta, who has coached Cindy Lauper and Anne Lennox to name a few. Katie took Jenn’s ability and gave it depth, so much so the original 5 songs had to be re-recorded. ” The difference was tremendous’ laughed Jenn, “with Katie, my voice has become much fuller. Between Katie and Tomas I know ‘The Best Part Of Me’ will do well. I am blessed to have them.”
Jenn is blessed herself. Jenn was born with a heart defect that has lead to 4 surgeries, the last one after recording the last song for her album to replace the battery in her pacemaker. “We joke that I just ran the battery out,” Jenn laughed.
Three weeks later she performed the National Anthem at the Brooklyn Cyclones ballgame.
That was an honor for Jenn, not only because it for the American Heart Association, but it was the National Anthem at a Baseball Game and she is an avid fan of the game. ” I do a lot of work with the “Go Red For Women” campaign of the Heart Association. I even was the “poster Child’ of sorts” Jenn giggled “They made me into a larger than life poster! I also had the honor of performing at the Red Ball Gala.” One thing for sure, is her condition doesn’t slow her down.
“I called the album “The Best Part Of Me” because it is. To succeed in anything you have to throw your whole heart into it. Whether its your family, or your career, no matter what, you have to give it all you got, including your heart” Jenn added ” I am lucky to come from a predominately Italian family, and Italians are just naturally passionate about things. I need to thank my family, for without their love and understanding, this album never could have been.”
