Take 10: Guitar and vocals mix in a great way

A healthy mix of guitar and vocals is what you are going to hear on Friday during the noon hour on the Gazette's exclusive Take 10 segment. Take 10 features local performers and highlights their talents on the Gazette Facebook news platform and Gazette.com.

Jacki Tapia will perform two cover songs - which means not originals - but she will perform them in her own unique way. Jacki will perform Amy Winehouse's, "Valerie" and Amos Lee's, "Chill in the Air."

Jacki is from Portales, New Mexico, and has honed her craft in live street performances in cities including Austin and Lubbock, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee. Jacki says her love of music originated from her dad, who has played drums for more than 50 years.

"Being surrounded in music enabled my siblings and I to almost feel music and allowed it to come very naturally to all of us," she said.

In this era of transparency, Jacki is an employee of the Gazette but her love of music made it an easy decision to choose her for the Friday's Gazette Take 10 performance.
