Contact Jennifer Naimo
Jennifer Naimo Morales has been an actress and singer for over 20 years. She originated the role of Frankie Valli’s wife,Mary Delgado, in the Tony Award Winning Musical JERSEY BOYS on Broadway.
The CD of the show has gone Gold already and the show continues to sell out nightly, and now has over 7 productions worldwide! She has performed with the late Christopher Reeve, “John Boy” Richard Thomas, Sigourney Weaver, Deborah Gibson, Blythe Danner, and various other “stars”.
But the journey of how Jennifer got there and how she has defended her faith and stood up in the midst of “Giants”, is the adventure she’ll take you on. Jennifer grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1 of 5 children in a loud, Italian Catholic family. As of late her nieces and nephews total 19. She attended Catholic school until she was accepted as an undergrad in New York University’s prestigious Graduate Acting Program at the age of 18,and timidly left her beloved home and parents. Her story of how the Lord has guided and protected her in the secular and fickle world of Entertainment is funny, challenging, moving and inspiring. Besides the recent Jersey Boys, Jennifer has also performed in several Broadway shows including Les Miserables, Grease, The Full Monty, and Big River. She has several Children’s Videos including ‘The Rosary for Little Children”, “Christmas for Little Children”, “Prayers for Little Children”, “Sing A Long for Little Children” and most recently “The Eucharist for Little Children”. They have sold over 100,000 copies around the US. She has appeared on EWTN’s Life on the Rock , and Ralph Martins “The Choices We Face”.
Jennifer now resides in Los Angeles where she has worked on several TV shows and also commercials. She met her wonderful husband Tim on Ave Maria Single Catholics Online!!!!!! (So yes, there is hope out there for all you single men and women) and just adopted a sweet boy to make their family complete. Jennifer’s singing style has been compared to Barbara Streisand, Karen Carpenter, Twila Paris, and an eclectic mix of Christian singers. However, it’s her ability to interpret a song and reveal Gods light in the darkness, that makes her an unusual and original force in the field God has planted her in. She is just as surprised and humbled by the roles and work God has blessed her with as you may be. But than with God, Nothing is Impossible.
