About Joelle James

Joelle is a 17-year-old vocalist who has been singing since age 5. She began her singing career in her church choir before she was able to read! Joelle gained much confidence from this experience and it is her first recollection of touching people with her voice.

Joelle became involved in her community through local theatre groups and a local performance group, Musicians Workshop. At 11 she sang her debut national anthem performance for The Lake Elsinore Storm vs. SD Padres. The rest, as they say, is history! (see Anthems) Later that year, Joelle was honored to sing “Georgia On My Mind” for the late Ray Charles as he accepted his lifetime achievement award from the Temecula Valley International Film and Music Festival.

Joelle’s local performances have created performance opportunities throughout Southern CA and elsewhere. Joelle has been invited to perform from Toronto, Canada, to Lititz, PA to Ensenada, Mexico. Since her debut national anthem performance at age 11, she has performed the national anthem at 150+ events including the nationally televised 2005 NASCAR Nextel Auto Club 500, play-off series games for the NFL(Chargers), NBA(Lakers), MLB(Angels, Dodgers & Padres), NHL(Ducks), MLS(Galaxy) as well as countless regular season games. Other anthems include, USTA Davis Cup Finals, NHRA Winter Finals, WUSA Regional Finals, ESPN Live Boxing @ Pechanga, and the Little League Western Division Finals. No matter what venue, Joelle is always honored to sing our national anthem.

Joelle sings at numerous charitable events and is always touched by giving hearts. She is a member of Kids With A Cause, an international charity group comprised of celebrity youth who are learning, first hand, to “give back.” Joelle has volunteered many hours and performances to the Boy’s and Girl’s Club, Riverside National Cemetery, Veterans Organizations, and the American Legion. Joelle was named “most charitable kid” in Kids With A Cause, donating more hours than any other member in 2005, and “Good Samaritan of the Year” and “Honorary Lifetime Member” of the support committee for The Riverside National Cemetery. Joelle strives to touch people with her voice and make a difference in the lives of others. Her foundation is God, Country, and helping those in need.
