    Duke's Grandchildren- Jennifer Wayne

    JENNIFER WAYNE



    WOW!!!




    With Uncles Patrick and Ethan

    Date of Birth
    April 1st. 19?

    Trivia
    Daughter of Aissa Wayne

    Grandaughter of John and Pilar Wayne

    Neice of Michael Wayne, Patrick Wayne, Melinda Wayne,
    Toni Wayne, Ethan Wayne and Marisa Wayne

    Biography
    The newest transplant to the Nashville country pop scene
    as singer and songwriter is a statuesque blonde beauty named Jennifer Wayne,
    a protégée of iconic star-finder Merv Griffin.

    She is managed by Caresse Henry, another well-respected star-builder
    (Madonna and Jessica Simpson, among other powerhouse performers).
    Even before her first album debuts, Jennifer has been signed as a BMI artist
    and the powerhouse Creative Artists talent agency (CAA)
    has taken her on as a client.

    At 24, Jennifer already understands the perks and perils of stardom.
    The granddaughter of the legendary John Wayne and his Peruvian wife Pilar,
    Jennifer has been influenced by Duke Wayne’s larger-than-life presence
    even though he died three years before her birth.
    Family lore tells of life on location, life aboard his refitted mine sweeper,
    and the romantic tale of how he fell in love with Pilar on a movie set in Peru
    when he heard the beautiful young actress playing flamenco guitar and singing.
    Growing up in Las Vegas and around Newport Beach in Orange County, California,
    Jennifer was given her first guitar and first lessons by her grandmother,
    with whom she remains very close.

    A talented tennis player, she first attended USC
    where she majored in art history and studied vocal performance,
    and then went on to UC Santa Barbara on a full tennis scholarship.
    She won the Nevada State Tennis Championship and was
    ranked 1 in doubles, 3 in singles, and 11 in doubles nationwide
    before becoming the pro at the Beverly Hills Tennis Club.

    During her school years, she formed a band with world-class tennis players,
    Bob and Mike Bryan, and the trio traveled around the world performing
    at tennis tournaments.

    After graduation, she continued to work on her music
    and eventually recorded a three-song demo with the help of pros like
    Peter Amato, Ron Harris and Ty Stevens.
    When she played it for Merv Griffin, an old friend of her grandfather
    who started as a singer himself, he told her she would be a star
    with the right team behind her. .

    Well-known for his “third eye” in finding and nurturing talent like
    Richard Pryor, Whitney Houston, Lily Tomlin, Steve Martin,
    and Ryan Seacrest, Merv created a new Griffin Group entity,
    Coconut Productions, to produce Jennifer’s first album.
    He put her together with Grammy-winning producer/performer
    Carl Jackson to arrange the songs and lyrics that she is polishing.
    They have laid down some initial tracks at Station West in Nashville,
    which have caused great excitement at several major labels.
    The album will be ready later in 2007, which Jennifer feels is particularly
    auspicious since this is the John Wayne Centennial Year.
    To mark his 100th birthday,
    I’ve written a song which I dedicate to him called God Bless John Wayne.
    It’s based it on a fan letter my grandfather received right before he died.
    At one point early in her relationship with Merv Griffin,
    Jennifer had a crisis of confidence.
    Merv got me back on track
    by playing a clip from his talk show of John Wayne singing The Shadow of Your Smile.
    My grandfather sang off-key but with great conviction.
    Merv said to me, ‘Just tell everyone you come from a long line of singers
    and then show them this. It will definitely break the ice!
    Written By Jennifer Wayne, MySpace

    Jennifer can also be heard at the birthday celebration,
    singing 'God Bless, John Wayne,
    Introduced by her Uncle, Patrick Wayne.

    Jennifer Wayne sings- God Bless John Wayne



    Jennifer is a very talented artist,
    and I believe she has the voice,
    personality, and looks,
    to be a star on the country circuit,
    in her own rights.

    I'll take that "average looking" any day. I think she is quite a beautiful woman. And she can sing.

    I actually find her quiet attractive, no so much in that video, but with some of the pictures. She does look like her mother. A younger version of Aissa. As for her singing, she does have a very nice voice. I like what she sings. I liked the songs she sung on the Myspace site. Love to hear more. Thanks keith for the info.

    Cheer

    Looks like you got us BIG time, Robbie!

    This is one case where being in the same room and hearing the tone of voice would make all the difference in the world in getting the "joke." I know when I read your first remark, I was wondering what you were thinking, or if you were on something.

    Good one!

    I'm glad it is a joke,
    I know Jennifer will be looking in on this one,
    and I didn 't want us to be less than courteous.
    Thanks for clearing it up.
