Jami Bess Belushi is a prolific singer and songwriter who has just finished writing and recording her tenth song in the studio. A born performer, Jami began singing for an audience when she was six years old and was featured on the television show "According to Jim" as tween pop star Jami McFame. Additionally, Jami appeared in six other episodes of "According to Jim" and has shined in dozens of stage musicals.
Jami's smiling face and powerful voice have performed at venues across the country. She has sung the National Anthem twice at Wrigley Field to standing ovations, captured audiences' hearts in Chicago and Martha's Vineyard, and, most recently, Jami can be enjoyed as a semi-regular performer at the Crossroads Restaurant at the House of Blues Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. She has also performed at Los Angeles institutions The Mint, The Federal Bar, and The Roxy. Jami will also appear on David Foster's upcoming television show, accompanied by the illustrious producer himself.
Jami has joined her father, Jim Belushi, many times during his shows with The Sacred Hearts and with The Blues Brothers, singing classic rhythm and blues. This past summer she had the opportunity to join The Blues Brothers on stage at The Paramount in Huntington, NY and at the Dutch Mason Blues Festival in Truro, Nova Scotia in front of a 25,000 member audience. Dan Aykroyd, aka Elwood Blues, initiated her as a Blues Sister and dubbed her "Bessie Blues."
Funny, cute, and with a powerhouse of a personality, Jami's ultimate life ambition is to open a candy store. And to sing, of course.
