A Super Bowl Halftime Show performance and then a Las Vegas wedding. It was undoubtedly a weekend to remember for the couple.
Usher was, as you probably know, the main face of the Halftime Show at Super Bowl 2024, held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. This represents one more achievement in the long and successful career of the singer, who has won 8 Grammys. Since 2019, he has been accompanied by his girlfriend, the mother to his two children, and following the musical extravaganza, Jenn Goicoechea and the R&B artist tied the knot. But how much do we know about her?
Who is Jenn Goicochea, Usher’s other half?
According to People magazine, Goicoechea has an Italian mother and her father is from Puerto Rico, although Jenn herself grew up in Miami. Her LinkedIn profile says that she studied Recording Arts at the Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.
Goicoechea is a music executive and ex-manager, and she joined the music business working with her mother, who worked since 1988 for ACT Productions, an events and multimedia company with their HQ in Miami. According to the same outlet, working with her mother gave Goicoechea the chance to get a role working with the singer Ciara, who started her career in entertainment.
When Goicoechea moved from Florida to the East Coast, she began to represent artists under the company name of Boogs’N’Effect Management. According to her LinkedIn, she worked in ASCAP as a Rhythm and Soul Director as of January 2014.
