Daily Inspiration: Meet Jorie Blake Rosen

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jorie Blake Rosen.

Hi Jorie, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start, maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
Hi! My name is Jorie Blake Rosen and I am a 9-year-old Actress/Recording Artist. I have worked in TV, Film, Commercials and Theater. I started my career working in print at the age of six months old and hit the stage for the first time at the age of three years old. I played Abu in the musical Aladdin. Since then, I have performed in various theatrical productions, most recently as Charlie in Willy Wonka and Kate in KOTAS Broadway production of Annie.

I have also had the opportunity to work on many TV/Film projects. I am shooting a project next month in Atlanta and have another feature I am shooting this Fall. I am also a singer/songwriter. My first single, Make Your Own Music, was produced in Spring 2021 and has received over 20,000 streams and my music video over 15,000 views. I wrote the song to inspire others to follow their passion in life. Go Make Your Own Music, find your own voice and do what you love. I am hoping to have my first album out but the end of the year. I have a bunch of new songs I can’t wait to share!

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I love performing! It is super fun for me, but to do it on a professional level it definitely takes a lot of hard work. I train every week in acting, singing and dance. I audition a lot for projects. I’ve gotten close to some very big opportunities this year, but covid hit and stuff shut down, which was definitely hard.

There also have been many callbacks/producer sessions where we have heard, “We love Jorie, BUT: she’s too old/young/short/tall/girlie/dramatic/childlike/innocent/serious… and everything else you can think of. This can be a struggle, too at times. But through this, I have learned this is a journey. I never take it personally. All I can do is work and be the best Jorie I can be!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I might only be nine years old, but I have a big drive and work ethic. I perform in Theater, TV, Film Commercials and Voiceovers, but I also love to write and create my own material. Besides my songwriting, I have also been working on a pilot with another writer called Just Jorie. I developed the idea during quarantine and my mom hooked me up with a professional sitcom writer to help structure it. I can’t say much about the project yet, but it’s a sitcom and really funny. My team has been shopping it around, and we are hoping we can create it soon. I think kids would really enjoy the story and characters.

Another part of me is that I really believe in giving back. My parents taught me charity at a very young age. I have worked with many charities such as Mini Mitzvahs, Toys for Tots, Tri-County Animal Rescue and most recently Make a Wish Foundation. I am working with a company called Play It Forward, and we hooked up my first single, Make your own Music with Make a Wish Foundation. So far I have raised over $2000.00 for the charity! I am so happy that I can use my talents to help other people’s wishes come true!

How do you define success?
Success is doing something that makes you happy. Right now, I love storytelling through the arts. I love giving back and making people smile with my performances. So that makes me happy. But as I get older will see. Maybe I will want to be a veterinarian, costume designer or lawyer. I think being successful is just working super hard at what you love and doing the best you can.
