Jenna Mammina is featured in The Mercury News with the headline “Celebrated Bay Area vocalist posts amazing streak during pandemic”!
Jenna Mammina had her next 24 months mapped out.
“I had my whole year of 2020 and 2021 planned,” says the popular Northern California vocal stylist.
Of course, those plans were made before the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered countless nightclubs and other performances venues.
With all of her touring plans canceled, the singer-songwriter — who handles jazz, pop, rock and other genres with equal style and grace — suddenly found herself with a lot of free time on her hands.
So, she did an amazing thing. Mammina began hosting twice-daily webcast/livestreaming events on March 23, 2020. And she hasn’t missed a single day since she started.
She calls them “11:11 with Jenna” — with a new episode debuting daily at 11:11 a.m. and totally different one following at 11:11 p.m. (Those times are ET, which means people on both coasts can watch the shows at a reasonable hour. West Coast viewers tune in at 8:11 a.m. and 8:11 p.m.)
She’s now closing in on one full year of “11:11 with Jenna,” which amounts to 730 unique shows in one year.
To celebrate the milestone anniversary, Mammina will host a marathon “funraiser” that begins at 8:11 a.m. and runs through at least 8:11 p.m. (both times PT) on March 23.
