An innocent woman killed in a wrong-way crash on the Westpark Tollway early Wednesday morning has been identified as a Houston R&B singer.
Jaelyn "JaeRene" Chapman, 19, died in the crash that happened in the inbound lanes near Dunvale just after 2 a.m.
According to a release, Chapman was a Houston native, a self-proclaimed R&B princess, who had competed in local and national beauty pageants since the age of 4.
She was featured on the song "H-Town for Real (Remix)," which also starred artists including Paul Wall, Lil Flip and ZRo. In a YouTube video from April 2020, Chapman talked about some of her favorite music and genres, including being a George Strait fan and what it would be like to duet with him.
Along with singing, Chapman was known as a songwriter and host of Kidz Jams on 953 Jamz.
She also often hosted "Baddie Bootcamps," aimed at promoting self-esteem and body positivity among girls between the ages of 5 and 18.
