Pam Eglintine, Jade`s
dance instructor at Steps Dance & Fitness, said Jade "was always a good singer and used to work really hard in everything she did. Jade is quite a quiet kind of girl who just gets on with things... As she progressed with the dancing, I knew she was going to be a star because she just has that natural ability... She`s got an amazing voice. Even from a young age, she had a strong voice" (Chronicle News, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. 10 Dec 2011).

Delia McNally, Jade`s teacher at St Wilfrid`s, recalled, "Jade performed many times at school and sang at our tsunami relief concert in support of World Challenge" (Jarrow & Hebburn Gazette. 12 Oct 2012).
