Born in San Francisco, California, Jocelyn Enriquez has been widely regarded as a music pioneer, becoming the first Filipino American artist to find success in the mainstream industry. Emerging from the Freestyle movement of the time, Enriquez was the first artist to sign with Classified Records and was quickly deemed by some as the “Queen of Freestyle”.
Her 1994 debut album “Lovely” features the dance hits “I’ve Been Thinking About You” and “Make It Last Forever”.

Along with “Do You Miss Me?”, the album would feature the radio and sales hit “A Little Bit Of Ecstasy” which reached #1 on the Billboard’s Dance sales chart for 6 weeks straight and would solidify her position in the Dance genre. The song was the lead single on her second album “Jocelyn”, released the following year by Tommy Boy Records. In 1998, she collaborated with label mate Amber and Strictly Rhythm artist, Ultra Natè, remaking the Gordon Lightfoot classic “If You Could Read My Mind” for the major motion picture “54”, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this September. Her third album “All My Life” was released in 2003 by her own record label JEM Entertainment and includes the hit singles “No Way No How” and “Why”.
Along with success in the United States, Enriquez also found international success where she has toured in places like Canada, Brazil, Singapore, Guam, and the Philippines.
