The newly sixteen-year-old arrived to her birthday party effortlessly and fabulously in crushed velvet jumpsuit, which paired perfectly with the edgy vibe at the iconic Hollywood venue. When we talked to Jena before the party started, the two things she was most excited about were to perform at her new single “Be” and celebrating the night with her friends and family!
Why Don’t We, a boy band composed of Daniel Seavey, Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jack Avery, and Jonah Marais came through to wish star Jenna Rose a very Happy Birthday. They were all smiles hitting the red carpet!
Citizen Four, the band, made up of YouTube star and X Factor USA finalist Josh Levi, Austin Percario and brothers Carson and Conner Boatman, were also in attendance sharing with us that new music is coming our way. They also shared some advice for the birthday girl; “be unapologetically yourself because when you get older people try to change how you think and change who you are,” Josh Levi said.
Bardot-Hollywood is a venue that is normally used for musical events for up and coming artists. Filled with inspired performers and rising talent in the industry, the venue was a perfect fit for Jena Rose‘s Sweet Sixteen, as Tryon, Sophie Beem, and Rose performed for guests throughout the evening. Jena performed her new single “Be” LIVE for the first time; a song that holds a special place in her heart. It is about staying true to herself in the music industry despite the many obstacles standing in her way.
The performances didn’t end there, though. Jena Rose and Tyron surprised the audience with a mix cover of “Closer” by The Chainsmokers and “Stay” by Sam Smith, perfectly closing our performances for the night. After the performances, the party was filled with dancing with music provided by DJ B-Hen, as well as guests being able to enjoy a make your own donut station and a Photo Booth filled with props.
The night finished off with a venue wide singing of “Happy Birthday” for Rose, as she thanked everyone for coming and a humble, sincere thank you to her biggest supporters, her parents, for believing in her and letting her follow her dreams.
We personally want to thank Jena Rose for inviting us to her Hollywood-filled Sweet 16, and wish her a very Happy Birthday!
