Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson: Wise, Inspiring & 25 Years Strong

Today is Jesy Nelson’s 25th birthday! Reigning from the U.K.’s best selling girl group this decade (Little Mix), Nelson has had quite the journey and quite the transformation. Emerging into a global pop star with her three fellow bandmates, this inspiring woman proves indefinitely that you are unique and should never let anyone take away your right to happiness.

She has continually inspired her fans to be confident within themselves. Her stance on the effects of bullying was brave and encouraging.

“When I was younger I got bullied about the way I looked and I thought once I was older it would stop. I hated going to school, but didn’t know who to talk to about it. It knocked my confidence a lot.”

Below you can also read a beautiful message she had for one of her fans.

She’s never backed down from having her opinion being heard and understands that the only way to  have your voice heard is to stand up and fight for your held beliefs – no matter what the opposition might think.

“A tiger never loses sleep over the opinion of sheep.”

Her singing has been heavily praised by people especially due to the unique tone she produces. In a recent article (click here to read), we discussed her killer vocal range and that “Jesy possesses a wispy and distinctive voice. She has exceptional comfort in her lower range and her signature vibrato is sustained throughout her whole voice. Her voice is one of the most unique out there”. One critic noted that: “Jesy’s voice is so unique you can easily pick her voice out of a choir”.

Jesy Nelson has shown how dedicated she is to Little Mix and her going on stage (despite getting a torn ligament during a portion of the Get Weird tour) proves how much love she has for her 3 best friends and for the group in general. She’s always dispelled rumors that the group are on the brink of breaking up and that they’ll be taking a hiatus.

Time and time again, her kindheartedness and inspiring ways have been felt by many, including her bandmates. On the verge of crying during a ‘Love Me Like You’ game on Sugarscape , Leigh-Anne speaks on Jesy saying:

“Jesy is very inspiring. And she will always make you feel better when you’re down. She’ll take the time out to talk to you and just make everything better. She’s stunning, so beautiful.”

Thank you Jesy for showing us that being confident in yourself is one of the most important things you could ever do. Thank you for your hilarious stints, your endless charm and your way of handling things in such a manner – real as can be. You continue to inspire your fans and know that your impact and positive role model influences shows what an incredible human being you are.

They can rip you, bring you down, down to their size. But they will never get to the heart you hold inside.
