Jean Nelson was born in 1976 in Haiti. At an early age he lost his mother. It was a defining event in the life of a small child, who started to look for options to heal this loss. And that kid found his inner peace in the music, which worked as an ointment to his pain and grief. Thus with time, he started developing more and more passion and love for music. Moreover his love for music grew and was at its peak during his early teens, after which he started exploring the world of music through various artists and genres. And with the inspiration from the likes of Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Brian McKnight, Michael Bolton, and Kenny G, his passion to sing grew immensely. This all led him to begin his profession in the music industry, and to release his first track “Remember You”, in the love and remembrance of his late mother. After this start, there was nothing holding him back, and he went on to release his 45th track this summer.

In another life changing event, he moved to New Jersey. Where he went on living with his current partner, Natasha L Nelson. Natasha had a great influence on Nelson's interests and skill sets. It was only after meeting her, Nelson started developing love for films and movies. Before her, he solely focused on music career and never looked and considered the option of debuting into the film industry. But Natasha captivated Nelson's imaginations for Hollywood cinema, ultimately leading Nelson to be starred in Hollywood. In an interview, he stated Natasha to be the sole inspiration for his film industry's passion. He went on saying;

“She is a brilliant, passionate and inspirational writer, and that really captivated my imagination for Hollywood cinema.”

 

 Nelson immortalized his appreciation for her never-ending support through the song “Beautiful” in the album “Unforgettable”. Together, both have written, directed, produced, and even acted in multiple films. Their mutual love and support for each other has lead them to even collaborate and work together on various music projects as well.

With all above life changing events, Nelson's music and film career has blossomed over time. He's now regarded as one of the most experienced people in the industry with numerous awards to his name. Nelson produced his first feature-length film in 2018, entitled “The Passion of Love”. Nelson co-wrote the film with his partner Natasha. The film is a romance drama narrating the story of two lovers who met in a past life and are trying to navigate their love in the 21st century. He committed himself to the film by overseeing all stages of production, including writing, directing, producing, and editing. The creative storytelling and breathtaking cinematography of the film received critical acclaim. Hence, the film was the recipient of the 2019 Platinum Award for the “Best Feature Film” by Hollywood Film Competition, as well as the “Best Feature Film” by Hollywood Forever Film Festival.

Nelson’s second film project is a short 2021 film called “The Wonders of the Witches”. The film was a mutual undertaking by Nelson and his wife.

Three months later, in July, Nelson released his second album, “Conception,” featuring seven tracks. Nelson began to continuously create and produce new music, releasing new albums only months apart. This is a true testament to his profound passion and dedication to music. “Immortal” was Nelson’s third album released in January 2022,comprising ten tracks. “Rising of the Morn” followed close behind with its official release that same year in October, featuring nine tracks. Nelson later released his first-ever R&B pop album, “Unforgettable”. This was the first time Jean ventured away from cinematic-type music and towards mainstream R&B pop. His partner again played an important role in this project. Till now, Nelson has released two albums in 2022. First being the single track “I'm Ready to Love”, was released in February, while his second and latest album, entitled “Enchanted Love,” was released in June, with five tracks.
