For many people trying to find a passion in life and then trying to find a job that fits that passion can be an arduous task, but not for Bethany Jacobs. Bethany has known what she wanted to do since she was a little girl; SING! "Since I can remember I have been on stage. Be it the stage in my bedroom putting on pretend concerts, choir at school, or specials at church I have always loved the stage." Bethany began singing at church and people began to realize what kind of pipes she really had. Her music teacher Bill Rehrer (accepted by Julliard) encouraged her to seek formal training. Formal training included the classics such as opera. We all know what kind of pipes it takes to sing opera and to sing it well. With this training and God-given talent to belt out those big songs Bethany began singing at several Italian venues in the San Antonio area, among them, the Italian restaurant Pompeii. As Bethany grew up, her love for country music grew as well. She started learning the words to her favorite country songs and just fell in love with the storytelling power that a country song brings. With this new found passion for country music Bethany began singing at cafes and different BBQ joints in south Texas. Bethany's rich but powerful voice suites the country style well. In the summer of 2006 Bethany was invited on the San Antonio Living Show where she debuted her first album, self-titled Bethany Jacobs. Following the SA Living Show Bethany played several small honky tonks and county fairs in the South Texas area promoting her CD. She was also given the privilege of singing the National Anthem at the San Antonio Rampage Hockey games and San Antonio Silver Star basketball games. When asked why she wants to pursue a career in country music Bethany often responds, "I feel that God has blessed me with a voice to sing and I would love to use that gift to be a positive role model for little girls everywhere, much like Martina McBride was and still is for me". During the same year Bethany married her fiancé Josh Jacobs and shortly thereafter bought their first home together. With a new home and her new husband Bethany decided to take time away from the music scene to focus on family things. But after her break from music she discovered that singing would always be her passion. However, the path to success in country music is long and hard. She has come to peace with this realization, and it is her firm belief that she is right where God wants her to be. If it is part of God's plan for her to move forward with a career in country music, then those doors will open. Bethany has moved forward and doors have begun to open for her. Recently she was given the privilege of co-fronting a few gigs with one of the most popular bands for hire in the South Texas Area The Jokers Wild Band. A couple months ago Bethany entered a singing contest called The Colgate Country Showdown. She won the local competition and is advancing to the state finals on September 26th 2009 at Bay Fest in Corpus Christi. Whether Bethany is able to make a career at being on stage singing country music or singing at church on Sundays, she gets to do what she loves; SING!
