Maria Eva Jacobs...

is an American jazz vocalist, Christian singer-songwriter and author, born of Syrian Lebanese and Armenian descent. She is a national recording and voice over artist, but that's not all.  Maria is also the professor of vocal jazz at Kent State University. Her debut book, entitled "Gra†eful", is a captivating memoir that reveals in detail her triumph over Bipolar Disorder, and what appeared for years to be insurmountable odds; odds that were overcome through the Grace and Mercy of Jesus Christ.

"Gra†eful" is a Christian memoir of faith, healing and the gift of music.  It is a

resurrection story of hope and faith and it is currently in the hands of one of the top ten Christian literary agents in the country, on its way to finding a publisher.
