Leave it to the likes of Jahana Jones McCoy to put a new spin on an old favorite. She effortlessly transforms If You’re Happy (and you know it) into an exquisitely crafted Summertime experience. The result is a rhythm filled song full of melody and praise under the banner of the Happy Song. The song was released on Friday, July 14th via Enon Music Group/Sony/The Orchard and is available on digital outlets and streaming platforms.
Happy Song tells Jahana’s personal story, it is her testimony in lyrics and syncopation. She shares the things she has been through and offers shouts of victory over the things God has delivered her from and candidly relays things she at one time feared to be transparent about! Jahana is excited that she can be a witness for God and is eager to proclaim the great things He has done and continues to do in her life.
Music has been a constant in Jahana’s life. Her days of song go back to the age of 3. She joined her family group The Jones Family and sang at churches and venues across the East coast, including a performance on Showtime at the Apollo Theater. As she continued to cultivate her gift, doors of opportunity opened for her to travel the country as she has done in her adult life. Jahana is featured on Miracle Worker as recorded by JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise. When not traveling she is content to serve in ministry alongside her husband Steve McCoy in the Worship and Arts Department at the Imago Dei Church in Portland, Oregon.
Above all, Jahana wants to be an instrument, ready for the Master’s use. She wants to be a direct connection to God and a bridge for people who are searching for God. “I’ve been there, she says. “Lost, searching, and hungry for God. I want people to know that despite the troubles that life brings, there is joy in the journey, and everybody can have a Happy song.”
