Vocalist Jacqueline Ballarin “blessed” the Sacred Sewing Room at Third Street Alliance. To fit with the theme of the makeover, Jacqueline’s first song was a rendition of “Grandma’s Hands”. Bill Withers wrote the song about his own grandma, and Booker T. Jones originally produced it.
To set the beat and mood, Jacqueline started with a tambourine and got the crowd to clap along with her. A peaceful feeling came over the room as Jacqueline started to sing. After “Grandma’s Hands”, Jacqueline sang “Amazing Grace” just as Kim Massie decided to do in St. Louis. Through these songs, Jacqueline’s voice filled the rooms with these songs of hope and encouragement.
Jacqueline holds a Master’s degree in Music from Temple University and has appeared on many stages in the tri-state area. In addition to performing, Jacqueline teaches and coaches others, too.
