Jahayra Luciano, professionally known as Jadiluc is an American R&B Pop singer of dance, salsa and house music. She is anticipated to be an important part of the resurgence of the retro dance music and neo-salsa movement in New York Metropolitan Area.

In 2008 Jadiluc made her first public appearances as a performer at the Coliseum Night Club, White Plains, NY and later that year at Le Poisson Rouge Nightclub in New York City as the opening act for Hit Dance Music recording artist Judy Torres.

The first song she ever wrote was titled “Best of Me” produced by Cedsolo. In 2009 all had gone awry when Jadi Luc was confronted with the challenge of combating a cancer diagnosis. Fortunately, following her recovery in 2011, Jadiluc re-entered the music world in 2013 as a cancer survivor and became part of the underground hit dance group Flight Monkey signed to an independent label under Ivy League Hits Entertainment and Producer Ced Solo.

Jadiluc has unique beauty and style; inspiring celebrity photographer Shareef Ziyadat to agree to a photo shoot engagement with her. He is the personal photographer for P Diddy, 50 Cent and Jay-Z. Jadi is currently completing her first album project with hit producer and songwriter Ced Solo.

As a cancer survivor, Jadiluc has become a vigilant advocate of encouraging early sign testing for women. Jadiluc is also a devoted mother to her miracle child, despite the fact that during her pregnancy and due to complications, the physician suggested to Jadi that she terminate the pregnancy in order to survive. Jadiluc motto in life is “Celebrate Life” and “Live Free, Be Who You Want To Be”.
