Jacquie Roar Biography – Jacquie Roar Wiki
Jacquie Roar is a 37-year-old wedding DJ and part of a country music band in North Plains, Oregon. She is a contestant on the 24th season of The Voice.
She released her first solo single, the impressive “Fire on the Mountain,” in June 2023. Says Jacquie: “They sing about broken hearts, I sing about avenging them.”
In an interview with Goathead Records, Jacquie says her music is mostly inspired by Fleetwood Mac and the sounds of the 1970s, mixed with modern emotion. “The biggest challenge for me is that I sometimes go too deep and get too dark.”
That first solo single, “Fire on the Mountain,” is hardly her only released music. She has fronted a band called Lace + Thorn that released six singles between 2019 and 2022. The most popular on Spotify is “Medicine Man,” released in 2022.
In a May 2023 Facebook post, Jacquie refers to a traumatic childhood experience that affected her self-confidence well into adulthood. She is now in a much better place, she writes, partly because she has a daughter she needs to teach to be self-confident and “feel beautiful always. Music, singing, and performing are who I am and who I was always afraid of being. Not anymore. Big things are coming and I can’t wait to show you the REAL me.” She continues.
She was Jacquie Cera from the Portland, Oregon area when she appeared on Season 11 of American Idol. Idol aired her Hollywood Week group round performance of Boston’s “More Than a Feeling.” That was a season in which several of the Hollywood Week contestants came down with a flu bug. Jacquie fainted at one point but insisted on performing. She and most of her group members were eliminated.
Other career highlights include singing prior to concerts by Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, and Kelsea Ballerini and singing the national anthem for the Portland Trailblazers.
Jacquie Roar The Voice
Oregon native Jacquie Roar is a contestant on season 24 of NBC’s The Voice. During the blind auditions of The Voice, she performed her rendition of “Here for the Party” by Gretchen Wilson.
Her performance resulted in a 4-Chair Turn. The performance was so fiery that Roar lost an earring, prompting Coach Reba McEntire to say that she had “heard of dropping the mic but never dropping the earring.”
Gwen Stefani said she has been “adopted into the Oakie world” thanks to her marriage to country star Blake Shelton. “The whole thing is weird, we all know it is,” she said.
“I feel like I’m in this new period in my life where I’ve learned a lot about country music and fell in love with country music in a way I never thought I would,” Stefani said.
Niall Horan also praised Roar, saying she could tackle “anything from Lenny Kravitz to Aerosmith. You’re going to be a showstopper,” he said.
Ultimately, though, it was Leilani, Roar’s daughter, who made the call. Prior to the performance, Leilani said her mom’s voice sounded like Stefani’s, though Roar said they didn’t actually sound that similar. Leilani, though, was a fan of Stefani’s, especially her song “Rich Girl,” and when Roar asked her daughter to come out on stage and help her pick, that’s who the 6-year-old went with – Gwen Stefani.
“I thought I had that!” McEntire said afterward.
