About Joanne Borgella
Being born into a wonderfully musical family, Joanne Borgella began singing almost as soon as she could talk. With her mother's encouragement, Joanne performed in her first recital at the age of thirteen. "It was definitely one of my most memorable experiences!" laughs Joanne, as she recalls dressing up in Christmas spirit singing the holiday classic, Silent Night. "After that day, I knew I was meant to be an entertainer being on that stage I felt at home, I was meant to be a star." And destiny is being fulfilled.
Following her debut performance, Joanne spent all of her spare time honing her vocal skills while polishing her modeling and acting talents to perfection. With a voice as crisp as a winter breeze, a runway worthy strut and a camera-ready face, Joanne has taken on a new venture. On September 23rd 2008 she launched her handmade jewelry line called “Ella” by J. Borgella. The line has received rave reviews and was seen on the runway for the debut of Richie Rich’s solo show in Miami Fl.
For a woman who was told that her weight would limit her talent she has accomplished numerous feats. Joanne is currently a working model at Wilhelmina Agency, she was crowned Miss F.A.T on Oxygen TV's groundbreaking special created by Mo'Nique of Queens of Comedy and The Parkers fame, entitled "Mo'Nique's Fat Chance." And she was voted top 12 on American Idol Season 7.
You can see Joanne in ads for Ashley Stewart, Proctor & Gamble’s “My Black is Beautiful,” Macy’s, Kohl’s and Torrid in many of your favorite publications.
