Born and raised in Colts Neck, New Jersey, Jacquie has been singing since she was little. Besides parents Denise and Richard, Jacquie has two siblings, older sister Nicole and younger brother Richie.
Jacquie was a student at Ranney School in nearby Tinton Falls, New Jersey when she decided to try out for the Voice.
The VoiceEditJacquie tried out for the show by singing the Amy Winehouse song "Back to Black", which caused Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton to turn around, both impressed by her soulful, mature-sounding voice. Jacquie chose Christina as her mentor.
With Christina Aguilera as her mentor, Jacquie got the chance to showcase her voice on songs such as "Who's Lovin' You" by Smokey Robinson to what some consider her breakthrough performance of "I Put A Spell on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Her renditions of both "Angel" by Sarah McLaughlin and "And I Am Teling You I'm Not Goin'" by Jennifer Holliday hit the top 10 on iTunes.
