When she was 14 years old, her mother enrolled her into the Duke Ellington School of the Arts high school where she studied Classical, Jazz, and Musical Theater.

I just absolutely love the song. I've been listening to it all day. She has a lot of vocal talent. I"m sure more will be heard from this young lady. Keep up with her on Twitter & Facebook. I don't know why she reminds me of Ja'né from The Game. They look nothing a like but somehow they put me in the mind of eachother and I love me some Ja'né. Her real name is Gabrielle Dennis, but I'm sure a few of you wouldn't have known who I was talking about had I said that name.

Any who, I hope you all like Osai because I sure do. I can't wait to hear more from her! What do you think about her?
