Anita Jenkins is married to her wonderful husband Chris (who sings lead with Joyful Noise). They have two great children and they all reside in Ackerman, MS. Like Chris, Anita has been singing for most of her life. In fact, singing is what brought the two of them together. To make a long story short, they both moved away from and back to Ackerman because of work, went to choir for a Christmas cantata practice and Chris had not seen her in several years, asked her out and the rest is history.
“I remember as a child coming home from Sunday morning church service and watching the ‘Gospel Jubilee’ show and wishing one day that I could sing like that in a quartet.”
After receiving an associates’ degree in Computer Programming Technology from East Mississippi Community College and a bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Mississippi State University, she now teaches at Long Creek Elementary in Sallis, MS. In her spare time, she enjoys watching Chloe cheer, play softball and basketball and watching Justin play football, baseball and basketball. Chris & Anita's children also sing and are learning to play the piano.
