Mom & Daughter Duo The Belles Share 10 Fun Facts Ahead of New Single

If you’ve been to one of JoJo Siwa‘s concerts this summer on her D.R.E.A.M. Tour, you most likely have fallen in love with her tour openers, The Belles!

Made up of Kelli and her mom Jaymie, the two opened up with JJJ about hitting the road with JoJo.

“It’s awesome to be on tour with JoJo because she’s so high energy and makes everything fun,” Kelli says. “I used to take dance from her mom, Jessalyn, back in Omaha when I was little, so we’re all like a big family who’s known each other forever!”

Jaymie added, “The beautiful thing about being on tour with JoJo is to see all the kids in the audience so happy! I love to watch the moms and daughters while we’re performing on stage – we all share the same bond!”

“One song in particular we play during our set, ‘Beautiful Girl’, talks about being strong in who you are, believing you are beautiful just the way you are, and I love sharing that message with not only the young girls in the audience, but also moms like me.”

Kelli also shared their fave thing to do together while on the road: “I love when we all go out to dinner together after a show, or when we go on adventures in different cities during the day. We went to the Space Needle in Seattle, scootered on the pier in San Diego, visited the arch in St. Louis, and toured the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. This is tour is really a D.R.E.A.M come true!”

The Belles will be dropping their new single, “Beautiful Girl” this week!
