What Is Time?: Jaclyn Debuts New Song at Battle for the Big O [Video]

Jaclyn took the stage at Saturday's finale of The Battle for the Big O to perform an original song by Jamie Smith.  We met Jamie, a songwriter from Meade County, Kentucky, during our open audition circuit.  We LOVED his music and invited him to come to the finale as a special guest.  See, until Saturday night, Jamie had never had one of his original songs performed by someone else.  So, we cut Jaclyn loose on his song "What Is Time?" and she absolutely slayed it.  THIS is beautiful.  Watch!
