Jannel Rap: Music Iconoclast
Talk Show host Dr. Arlene Barro created her WIN Without Competing! show for candidates, employees, entrepreneurs and employers to learn about her Right Fit Method from her guest interviews.
On WIN Without Competing! Dr. Arlene will interview singer-songwriter Jannel Rap who, according to the International Music Connection Magazine, is one of the top 50 iconoclasts of the music business along side the Eagles, Lil Wayne, Robert Plant and many more.
Jannel has five solo CDs that have received national airplay. She is currently working on her 6th solo CD entitled..."Are We There Yet?" She has shared the stage with John Waite, Sophie B. Hawkins, Stevie Wonder, Sandi Patty, The Yardbirds, Nickel Creek, Eddie Money, Rick Springfield's band- The Squirts, Susan Gibson (Dixie Chicks), Lowen and Navarro, Loudon Wainright III, James Valentine of Maroon 5, Tyrone Wells, and Ronnie Cox.
Her music has been featured in the television shows "America Lost and FOUND", and "Elimidate," in Karen Black's play "Missouri Waltz," the Henry Jaglom films "Going Shopping" and "Irene In Time," the documentary: "800 CDs" and the film "Costa Rican Summer" starring Pamela Anderson.
Jannel founded GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation after the disappearance of her sister, Gina, in 2000. The GINA FOUNDation was featured twice on the Grammy Awards Program along with Jannel and numerous contributing artists, including Meatloaf, Michael C. Ross, Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Carlton, Little Feat and Sheila E.
Annually, Jannel takes her band Clementine on the Squeaky Wheel Tour which is a 19 day event beginning on Gina’s disappearance date and winding down on her birthday. Jannel is considered an expert on call for missing person cases featured on national TV shows such as Nancy Grace.
She was the host of "America Lost and FOUND” and co-hosted the CRN’s Digital Talk Radio “Live from Studio C Street.” The TV show "FINDing Gina," about Jannel and her band, Clemetine, is under development. It's a reality series about a band on the road looking for one of their member's sisters and in the process they meet the families of the missing to help them gain media attention for their loved ones. People are FOUND. Jannel will be the host.
Jannel is the author of 30 Days in a Life that chronicles a specific 30-day period in her life. This book not only gives you a view into the day to day life of this uniquely driven woman, but brings to light how her sister's disappearance has created life lessons and changes she would have never experienced otherwise.
Join Dr. Arlene as she uncovers how Jannel’s passion for music has inspired her to turn tragedy into a mission for helping others.
