Janice and Sonia have fond memories of their childhood. When asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Their answers were a variation of teacher, painter and at one point in time even a shop-keeper. Funny though, never did they mention a musician or a performer as something they wanted to become. They had no idea what was headed their way. In 2008 the duo discovered the world of YouTube. Fascinated by the concept of connecting with an unseen audience all over the world, they created their first account under the name "Jayesslee". The name was their attempt to be clever - fusing both of their initials and spelling it out, "Jay" for J and "Ess" for S and "Lee" their surname. Jayesslee's first video was uploaded in their messy bedroom, doubtful that anybody would take notice. However the subscribers steadily increased over a year (currently over 700,000 Subscribers) and it wasn't until 2009 when the two saw a sudden boost in followers after their viral hit cover of Tamia's "Officially Missing You" (currently over 12 million hits).
