Jessy De Smet was born the 8th of July 1976 in Zottegem. Both her mother and father are performing in bands and she has a brother who is only 18 months older than Jessy.
Already at the age of 8, Jessy started singing. Since her parents are musicians, a musical career for Jessy was the first logical choice. As her parents were performing with "Willy Sommers" (a well-known Belgian artist) every weekend, he asked Jessy to record a single with him. This single was called "Twee Vrienden" (Two friends) and scored pretty good in the Belgian charts.
About a year and a half later, "Marijn De Valck" (also the top of the Belgian entertainment), who lived in the same town as Jessy, asked her to record a song called "Vang het licht" (catch the light). All the money earned with this song, was donated to the Belgian Federation of Autism. In the meanwhile Jessy's parents started their own band, "Jennifer Band" in which Jessy started singing at the age of 12.
