Jacquie Roar On The Voice
Jacquie Roar following her blind audition joined Team Gwen Stefani. Then, when she ultimately failed to make it past the Battle Rounds on the team, Coach Reba McEntire came through with a last-minute save. Because of that and all that Reba contributed, Jacquie has felt the change in the entirety of how she now performs as an artist, in a positive way of course. She said the “biggest thing” that Reba taught her was to stand still to sing, and not go crazy onstage.
For the Knockouts, Jacquie went up against Tom Nitti and Alison Albrecht and won a ticket to the next round with a cover of “Girl” by Maren Morris. Then came Playoffs where this particular contestant put her vocal chords to the test with Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.”
Jacquie was eventually chosen to move onto the Lives alongside fellow country singers, Jordan Rainer and Ruby Leigh.
