The young singer, songwriter, actor and influencer couldn't help but cry during the RedRecords launch. After all, she had already decided to go back home to Germany when this huge opportunity came her way.

RedRecords CEO Hassan Choudhury told MYX that Jannine stood out during the artist showcase of UMG Southeast Asia. "When I saw her, I had that gut feeling. I thought, 'Wow, she's amazing!' And when you get to know her, incredibly talented young girl, incredibly infectious personality."

Jannine's charm and talent are on full display in her YouTube channel which has more than 3.5 million subscribers. Her most viewed video to date is her cover of "See You Again" by Charlie Puth which she recorded at age 15.

While she started out doing covers, Jannine also crafts original music. "My idol that inspired me is totally Taylor Swift because she writes her own songs," she shared during our MYXclusive interview in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. "Just the way she responds when she faces drama, I really admire how she handles all that," added the self-confessed Swiftie.

Apparently, Jannine would love to collaborate with the Philippines' very own Darren Espanto who she met during her visit to our country last September. "Hope we'll get to work together someday soon," she wrote on Instagram.

Now that she's signed with RedRecords, Jannine is full of excitement and optimism for what lies ahead in the coming year. "I'm in good hands because I have a team that will help me to really find myself and the right direction that I'm gonna go," she said. We're rooting for you, girl!
