Rape is often the "hush" word in our society, and yet Naya Mona opens her voice through the pages of Color Me Jazzmyne and allows each listener to hear her pain, feel her emotions, and understand the journey she takes as she confronts a son she never got a chance to name.
How do you tell your son that your father is his? How do you explain what color is Jazzmyne? When a father's touch is no longer innocent, how do you find the strength to push past the pain? These are the questions that will face Naya, these are the questions she will answer each time she steps on the stage and becomes Jazzmyne, the Jazz Singer.
