Jekalyn Carr’s Boyfriend First Saw Her On Instagram

During the off-season, Jekalyn Carr’s boyfriend Jawaan stumbled across the recording artist's singing video while scrolling through Instagram at home.

Impressed with the melodic voice, the American footballer showed the video to his mother and auntie, both of whom also got equally mesmerized by the young woman's talent and beauty. The NFL player’s family members even hinted that Carr “would be a good girl” for Taylor.

Sometime later, the Jacksonville Jaguars player thought of striking up a conversation with the 23-year-old singer. Acting upon the urge, Jawaan mustered up the courage to DM her on Instagram.

The Changing Your Story singer reportedly doesn't usually prefer guys who slide into her DM, but as Carr said in a segment of The Willie Moore Show, there was something different about the bulky athlete.

After that, the rest is history. The two hit all the right notes and discovered each other's commonalities, interests, which eventually led to a relationship. They often met each other and also shared their relationship status with Taylor’s mom.

It was only a matter of time for their relationship to come out in public: they made it official through an Instagram post in October 2020.

Jekalyn Carr Got Into Singing Through Church

Born on April 22, 1997, Jekalyn Carr hails from Arkansas, a southern U.S. state bordering the Mississippi River. Her parents are Allen Lindsey Carr and Jennifer Denise Carr. The gospel artist also has two siblings: Allen Lindsey Carr Jr. and Allundria Carr.

Carr started serving in a nearby church choir at the age of five and eventually learned to sing. The singing practice morphed her into becoming the main chorister in the neighborhood church.

At 13, the gospel artist was already considered a highly sought-after speaker; she shifted from speaking to singing at 15 with her single Greater Is Coming. And a year later, she had already received her first Stellar Award.

Without a doubt, her singing stints at the church helped her polish her god-gifted talent. 

With the couple's one-year anniversary coming around the corner, we might just see them tie the knot in the near future. We wish them all the luck for their future.
