Jackie, born Jacqueline Arredondo on March 23, comes from a family of actors and singers; growing up in theaters, she began her
career at the early age of 4 as an actress, debuting at the theater where her mother worked.

She became a vocal coach at an early age while studying music in the United States in the best schools in the city of Miami, FL, where her own teachers discovered she possessed an enormous gift for teaching. Her instructors found that she had the ability to achieve results in students that many vocal coaches could not. Jackie so effortlessly and quickly would capture the weakest points from students getting them to do things with their voices they never dreamed they could.

This ability attracted the attention of music producers, promoters and songwriters. Soon Arredondo began to prepare artists for very important people in the Hispanic music industry. And due to such short deadlines, she was forced to develop a much more aggressive teaching technique which she named “THE JACKIE ARREDONDO SINGING METHOD”. It was this very unusual method that caught the eye of record executives at Sony Music Latin and made her an offer she couldn’t refuse by giving her the opportunity of a lifetime. Sony Music Latin made Jackie their vocal instructor handing to her all their rough talent to train, polish and turn into stars. What Jackie never imagined was that this opportunity, after 9 years, would land her the first gig in a Hispanic reality show where she would appear as a vocal instructor for TELEMUNDO/NBC giving her the chance to take her work from in between four walls to 30 countries through the small screen.

By her 4th Hispanic reality show, and after being categorized as one of the best vocal instructors for the Hispanic music industry, Emilio Estefan took interest in her and swept her away to instruct his reality show. This attracted the attention of one of the most powerful RNB producers, Sean “PUFF DADDY” Combs. Here she was given the opportunity to train Puff Daddy’s first Latin artist for his Hispanic Label “BAD BOY LATINO”

Jackie Arredondo, now having a name with enough weight in the Hispanic music industry as a vocal instructor for reality television attracted attention once again, this time from another major television network “UNIVISION”. She was hired to train singing competitions for their highest rating variety show, giving her yet a more challenging task by allowing her to co-produce their segment by giving it a reality show image.

This caught the eye of record industry mogul, TOMMY MOTTOLA. Arredondo would train for him one of the most famous divas in the Hispanic music and television industry as it is THALIA.

Arredondo has continued to work for SABADO GIGANTE and in 2015 she had trained 5 Reality segment seasons for the show having instructed 11 reality shows in total to date.

Jackie has collaborated in the studio with artists as Gloria Estefan, Brenda K. Star, Son by Four, Julio Iglesias, Jr., Jaci Velasquez, Phillip Michael Thomas and Paulina Rubio among others. She has worked with extraordinary record producers as Rick Wake (producer for Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston) and KC from KC and The Sunshine Band among others. Working with this group of major producers, Arredondo has prepared artists for labels such as Universal Music, Bad Boy Latino, Sony, BMG and Warner Chapel among others.

This whole journey allowed her to be a golden bridge for others and now that she feels totally fulfilled as a vocal instructor and as a professional, Jackie is pursuing her long life dream giving a twist to music by becoming the recording artist she always dreamed she’d be in the wonderful world of Country Music, a genre of music that has inspired and captivated her since she was an 18 WHEELER TRUCK DRIVER while listening to the music she adores and records today. In doing so, off she went to Nashville, TN to record, her first radio played single INSANE let everybody know JACKIE had arrived in Nashville! Later on she went to record her first EP called PUT SOME MAN ON THATwhere she collaborated with Jason Campbell, a fantastic songwriter known for several top 20 hits like “Miss what’s her name” and demo songs for artists like Rascal Flatts and Sammy Kershaw, among others. It is Campbell who decides to give Jackie her next single “Someone like you”. She also recorded songs written by Steve Peterik (Eye of the Tiger), Charlie Allen, among others.

But it was not till she stole a napkin with BRIAN G. WHITE ‘s cell phone number which would change her life forever as a country recording music artist. Her second EP “JUST CALL ME…JACKIE” pushed her up to #61 on the billboard charts. Jackie has been the only Latina to record true country music in Spanish since her EP was translated by her and is sold in ITUNES and all digital stores just as the American version.

Jackie’s dream is to sing with her favorite band someday…RASCAL FLATTS. She wants to finish her tribute to them in Spanish hoping they will someday take an interest in collaborating with her. Her first tribute was her single “DESPIERTAME” Spanish version to their “COME WAKE ME UP” single HIT and she has a few more stored up for a 2016 debut tribute EP.
