Talented Utrecht expat singer and musician to appear on Voice of Holland
Last updated by
Palmer, will appear on The voice of Holland, the original program that Americans know simply as “The Voice.” The television show, which originated in Holland, showcases singing talent who perform for coaches who can only hear, but not see them. Coaches, who are successful singers in the industry, face toward a live studio audience until they hear a talent they are interested in coaching, at which time they press a button and turn to face the singer, inviting them to be on their team. Once selected by a coach, contestants move forward to face an opponent in a singing battle. This Friday, November 17th at 8:30pm, the episode will feature Jaclyn Bradley Palmer’s blind audition. She is the only American featured this season. The show will air in Holland on RTL4 and clips will also be available for viewing immediately afterward on YouTube.
Palmer, who is thrilled to be auditioning for the Dutch program, claims that music is her first language. Singing since childhood, she studied voice throughout her adolescence and attended Interlochen Arts Camp where she received a scholarship to attend Indiana University’s School of Music, concentrating on classical opera. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance, Jaclyn lived in both New York and Los Angeles where she began writing her own music. She performed her original music on both coasts, and has had her compositions featured on MTV, Vh1, HGTV, Bravo and TLC. Palmer has recorded 3 full length studio albums—two in the States and one in Holland. Palmer is also a master degreed music therapist, receiving her training from Colorado State University. When not performing, she can be found bedside at a hospital, using music to help others at a crucial time. In 2016, she was honored by Cleveland Magazine who named her as of one of the city’s most interesting people.
Jaclyn moved to the city of Utrecht with her husband Oliver, an engineer, and daughter Roma, age 3, in 2015. She is excited to be sharing her talent with The voice of Holland and representing America as an artist abroad. “It is the opportunity of a lifetime,” says Palmer, “to be sharing my voice with the world is a distinct honor and I am so very grateful.”
UtrechtCentral.com would like to take this opportunity to wish Jaclyn all the best in her endeavours as a singer and musician.
