More about Jelynn Rodriguez
Jelynn Rodriguez is a Filipino American actress, singer, dancer and host. Born and raised in San Diego, California, Jelynn knew she wanted to pursue an entertainment career after singing to a large audience on her very first stage in a local cultural festival at the age of three. Jelynn was also inspired by her aunt, “Tita Missy” Aguilar, watching her for 5 years, as she played the role of Kim in the First National Touring Company of the musical “Miss Saigon” in the early 90’s.
Along with discovering her natural ability to sing, Jelynn learned all types of dance, ranging from tap, ballet, modern, jazz and Filipino-folk dancing with the Samahan Filipino American Performing Arts and Education Center during most of her youth and adolescent life. She then
discovered her true passion of Hip-hop and this is what launched her growing journey through Hollywood. Jelynn auditioned against 300 applicants for one of the fifteen slots open to dancers at a Los Angeles talent agency. She left the audition with a contract. She continued to evolve as an artist by recording a vocal demo combining it with a pop/urban/funk/rock sound in 2001, which gained an invitation to perform before a standing room only audience at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.
Singing and dancing only lead Jelynn to want to learn more and become an all- around talented woman as she moved to Los Angeles. She began to acquire hosting and acting roles that lead her to host the Imagen Award nominated popular show “The Drop” on the cable network SiTV, for 5 seasons. From this experience, Jelynn is now known for hosting on numerous networks such as the TV Guide Channel, AMC, Altitude TV and most recently on Disney/ABC’s Soapnet.com.
