Official Anime Theme Song Vocalist. by Andrea Arce

Maria de Jesus Teran, most recognized as Jade, formed part of the recognized and famous Mexico’s Jade duet. She has a history of famous artistic and musical events, privileged with a spectacular voice that has let her to voice characters and songs of many animated shows. She is also known as Ms. Mary, a licensed teacher for kinder music, since she is worried for the musical education for the young ones. • What inspired you to start your shows? I never imagined starting shows, my fans made everything possible, that’s why my show is called ‘The Reunion’ because my fans have wanted to hear the original voices of the comics and anime characters of their childhood. Some of them are pato aventuras, muppet babies, the swan lake 1,2 and 3, and pokemon, etc. • What do you prefer most, being Jade or being Ms. Mary? I prefer being on stage because I have the opportunity to project my voice live, and I have the chance to meet my fans. Even though my love to my kids isn’t less.

Every parent thinks their own child’s has a lot of talent and maybe they had, but it’s not just talent that is needed to succeed in Show Business . Here are some questions you need to ask yourself before to introduce your child into the business.

Is your child confident? Can your child maintain Focus?

• What are your plans for the future? A production of the play of Ranma y medio, one of the most important series in Mexico, and other Hispanic countries, and I’d also love to travel and present my show to all Hispanic countries too. Jadeofficial1.twitter

Radio has always been my passion, it’s just magical. I’ve seen it that way since I could remember, that’s why I always knew I wanted to do it all my life. When I was little I took some theater classes, I loved performing. I was part of many different plays, when I was 9, I had the chance of a lifetime on the radio, on Saturday morning they told children stories where I was the voice of an ant named Samantha. It was a wonderful experience indeed.

What were your dreams and goals as a child? Since I could remember, I always knew that I would work in the media, my world as a child was linked to photography, radio and television. I come from a family of journalists and communicators.

At what age did your interest by national media? My favorite toy was a camera that my grandfather gave me when I was 3 years old, for me it was a wonderful and magical moment when my grandfather let me in the dark room to develop the photographs. It was great to see the image as it appeared in the paper. I was also the first to hear the articles that my dad wrote. Even thought I did not completely understand was it was, I was responsible for giving the go-ahead for him to publish it. Him, being a lover of theater and music, was writing about these issues that are always somehow related to the wonderful world of art in all its forms.

How were you developing this talent?


Paola Cobas is the co-host of the show Paparazzi Magazine on MegaTV, she was also one of our wonderful judges at Spirit dance & talent competition.

I Studied radio, television production, and journalism at the Salesian University in Quito - Ecuador while working weekends at a station called Moya Stereo. I was the first speaker of the season and a year later they decided to switch to Metro Stereo, a station with a more modern format. During this period I also had the opportunity to work on major TV channels, leading a program of music videos. But the greatest opportunity of my life came two years later when I started with Radio Majesty, back then it was the number one station.

How did you come to Miami? The desire to experience and learn about different places brought me to Miami, where I’ve lived for 12 years. And here in Miami my first opportunity given to me was on Univision Radio, where I worked for two years and then join Radio Romance for three years. During December 2007 to June 2011 working on Mia 92.1 Radio in West Palm Beach, a station owned by Clear Channel where I had the opportunity to be the producer and host of a morning show called the “The Morning Show with The Pao” .

What are your next projects? One of my recent projects was to be part of the Argentina MTV program “Solo Fusion”. Right now I’m taking advantage of what technology offers us I am working on a project for Ecuador Broadcasting.

How was your experience as a judge in Spirit dance & Talent Competition? Undoubtedly one of the best experiences, to be a part of every dream and see the love and effort that participants put in to this art, and especially seeing the love and support from their families is something that is priceless.

Paola Cobas currently serves as a co-host from Miami, Florida in Paparazzi Magazine a leading program on Mega TV.
