Jasmine Thompson and her lovely cat called Lily

‘‘

I’d eat tons and tons of ice cream, get really fat. And I’d like to have a group hug with everyone. Yeah... I’d do that.’’

Jasmine’s favorite meal


Ever face planted in public when running? Yes I have. Multiple occasions. Basically one of my favourites is when I was walking to the bus stop with my friend Cat. I don’t know what happened. We were running and my knees just buckled, I don’t know what happened. So I tripped and fell, face planted, I was still holding the coffee. Cat was like ‘‘Oh my god, Jasmine are you ok?’’ I said: ‘‘Yeah, I am fine.’’ We carried on running. It was good, but there were tons of people

from my school, it was awkward. If you have just one day to live what would you do? I’d eat tons and tons of ice cream, get really fat. And I’d like to have a group hug with everyone, Yeah... I’d do that. What do you do when you are mad? Usually I give people the silent treatment. If I look at you with evil eyes... Will you give blonde hair a go? Probaly not. I don’t think so. Might change my

minde later but no. Ever thought of a new hair style? Not really. When I was younger, I was really stubid. I guess I really wanted to have a bob. My mum was on the phone, I was about 4. I was sitting under the table, I cut my hair into a ‘‘bob’’. My mum didn’t like me for a while. What do you think of marriage? I will tell you in 20 years.

FANS’ STORIES

How Jorge dis First of all, English language is not my mother tongue so I am sorry in advance in case this text is a nonsense. It is very hard for me to explain in this language. Here I go. Jasmine Thompson became my favourite singer since the first time I heard her voice, and I am so proud of that. It was in the beginning of October 2013 or maybe the end of September when I saw a tweet from someone I used to follow on Twitter. They said something like: ‘‘This is amazing! I’m watching Jasmine Thompson on the news in the BBC!’’. I wondered who was ‘‘that’’ Jasmine Thompson, and WHY she was on the news. I searched for her name on Google and I found a YouTube channel called ‘‘TantrumJas’’. Tantrumjas?! The first video I watched was the ‘‘Ain’t Nobody’’ one and then

‘‘

...I never liked the original song, but her cover was much better! Better? It was actually superb! I loved it.’’ Spain (Jorge’s country) is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and it’s known for its cultural diversity! So, Will Jorge’s dream come true?

I subscribed to her YouTube channel. I remember that I loved that cover. Later, I discovered that the huge success in the UK of this version was the reason why she got interviewed in the TV news. After that one, I

watched ‘‘Let Her Go’’. To be honest, I never liked the original song, but her cover was much better! Better? It was actually superb! I loved it. So I spent the rest of the day listening to all her songs. I can remember that I loved

especially the preview of an EP she was releasing in the next days, called ‘‘Under the Willow Tree’’ so I pre-ordered the album. And then, I started to follow her on Twitter. A few days later she followed me back, until now. march 2015 / jasmag

Jasmine playing piano in the woods for the official music video ‘‘Run’’

The most I like of her is the kind of voice she has: pure, soothing and powerful at the same time, one of a kind. I love the way she sings. She makes the songs as her own, I mean she doesn’t imitate the original singer as other cover artists do, she makes a NEW song, her song. And of course she’s so kind to every single one of her fans. I bet she will never forget us when she will become a worldwide music star in the future. I want to see her singing live, so I cannot wait to attend a concert of her in my country. Hopefully. It’s been over 16 months supporting her and I will support Jasmine as long as she wants to be a singer. She will be a great artist, soon. Well, she already is, at least for me.

6 October, 2013 Jasmine was on BBC News Channel.

I would like to say a big thanks to Stefan (@ jasmine_fanpage) and Anis (@aniselidrissi) for letting me write these words here. Also thanks to all the nice Jasmine’s fans out there, you all are amazing. And of course a huge THANKS to Jasmine for singing as beautifully as she does and sharing her talent. Jorge, a proud Jasmine Thompson’s fan from Spain.

Nina the first time as she posted a drawing from Jasmine on Twitter last summer.

OTHER TALENTS Almost at the same time she starts her channel on Youtube with a hillarious Vlog called: ‘‘How to procrastinate with style.’’ A very funny start into a great future on Youtube, if you would ask me. But Nina does not only Vlogs. She is also a great singer and has already written her own songs. One is called ‘‘Shiny Black Dream’’ and this song was recorded in a sound studio in England!

‘‘

Nina does not only Vlogs. She is also a great singer and has already written her own songs.’’ Her second own song ‘‘Make Me Smile’’ was filmed in the beautiful country side of France in the summer time. A beautiful video which brings you back to that one summer that you always will remember. ‘‘Moondust’’ is her recent cover (at the editorial deadline). A breathtaking acoustic version from Jaymes Young’s original. If you’d like to support
