HBCU Highlights presents Nayo Jones!
HBCU Highlights spotlights HBCU graduates who tell their inspiring stories. Let’s take a walk in Nayo’s shoes!
Nayo was actually visiting Clark Atlanta University and during her visit, she toured Spelman College! Once she entered the gates, she felt like she was “home!” While at Spelman she majored in economics and she was pushed not only by her classmates to excel, but one of her professors actually called her one evening to push her! She didn’t always know that she would pursue music as a career! She was born in Chicago, Illinois into a family of musicians and destined to be in show business. As an accomplished jazz musician and music educator, her father William “Doc” Jones groomed and nurtured her natural ability from a very young age. Currently Nayo is based in New Orleans, LA where she performs regularly with her band “The Nayo Jones Experience”. In addition to her own show, Nayo also tours alongside New Orleans iconic jazz trumpeter, Kermit Ruffins as a featured vocalist.
