VINDICATED: YOUNGSTOWN GROUP THE VINDYS FAST CLIMBING THE REGIONAL MUSIC RANKS

Canton Repository - July 5, 2017

When singer/songwriter Jackie Popovec was around 10 years old, her mother had a unique way of keeping her daughter occupied during summer vacation. While ironing, cooking or doing other household chores, mom set up a karaoke machine that she had bought for young Jackie to give her a constructive activity to burn time. Whether it was standards, oldies or top 40 pop tunes, Popovec became somewhat obsessed with perfectly mimicking the songs she heard.
