Hi I'm Jacob

I am aspiring to become a professional Opera singer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 6 and I've been singing since I was the age of 10. I enjoy everything that has to do with music, singing, playing, composing, and listening. Sometimes I feel as though I live and breathe music. If you ran into me on the street you'd probably say I'm a walking musical because every once in awhile I burst out into song and sometimes even dance. I am currently going to college to get my Bachelors in Music focusing on Vocal Performance. I've always been a happy and loving person and I'm a big hugger.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in layman's terms I'm a Mormon. Although I grew up in the Church and was baptized I was never fully converted to this beautiful gospel until last year. Before then I made a few undesirable choices that led me off the straight and narrow path onto uncertain roads that only brought sorrow and heart ache for many years. I was lost and confused wandering in the darkness until one day he found me. I followed his light bringing me back to the straight and narrow path that I had strayed from. He found me through my friends who were great examples for me and who supported me with their love. God loves his children. I would not be where I am today if that wasn't true. He loves us so much that he sent his Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ to atone for the sins of the world. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His church and we are blessed to have the fullness of His gospel in our lives. Men and women are that they might have joy. Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ we can truly be happy. This is why I was converted and why I follow His Gospel. Because through his Gospel I am much happier than I have ever been and I have been healed and truly forgiven of my sins. God loves me and blesses me everyday and you can be blessed as well. He loves ALL of his children and he wants us to be happy. I love my Savior and Redeemer Jesus and I am grateful for his Sacrifice that I may live in happiness. I hope that we all find true joy in this life. Look to God and live for he is there and he loves all of us even unto the last.

How I live my faith

I actually live my faith through music. All of my callings from past to present have been about bringing music into our Church Meetings, whether it be choosing the hymns for Sacrament meeting or putting together Special Music Numbers such as solo singing, and instrumental music. It is said that some of the greatest sermons are presented through music and the hymns. I've taught the youth in the church through music and I've also had many opportunities to sing in Sacrament Meeting. I compose and arrange church hymns and Christian songs including spirituals. I record them and use my music as a way to share what I have learned through Sunday School and just living through our Savior's Gospel.
