Jackie Stevens

Jackie Stevens, born in Akron, Ohio, started her singing career in the local Baptist Church. Having trouble singing along with the choir, she soon realized that her singing talent could not be bridled under the restraints of the choir director, as she was a natural improviser. She moved to Texas, honed her craft, and later moved on to Hollywood, to become one of the most sought after studio vocalists. She toured with many of the greats including Rod Stuart and Chaka Khan.
