Jaci Detrick Goes for Her Own National Championship Friday Night- the National Convention Talent Title

Jaci Detrick Goes for Her Own National Championship Friday Night- the National Convention Talent Title


Jaci Detrick of the Newcastle FFA has made her presence known at the 2017 National FFA Convention- singing several times already on the Convention Stage in Bankers Life Fieldhouse- with thousands of FFA members screaming and singing along with her. During the Third General Session on Thursday evening, she sang "God Bless the USA" and brought the house down- and after that performance, Radio Oklahoma Network's Ron Hays caught up with her as she stepped off the stage and talked with her about her singing gift and how that has intersected with the FFA.


Detrick has been singing since she could talk- her first venue was church and her early performances were barefoot. Today, FFA has provided lots of opportunities to share her talent- and she is hoping to win the 2017 National Convention Talent Competition outright on Friday night. She was runnerup in 2016- and decided to take another shot at it here in 2017- and based on the crowd reaction to date- she may be the favorite to win it all.


She loves FFA, currently serves as the Newcastle FFA Chapter President and has gotten involved in more than just Chorus and Talent Competitions. Jaci tells Ron "FFA has given me a career path. I plan on attending Oklahoma State University- Go Pokes- and major in Agricultural Business and Agricultural Communications. It has given me a direction in life and it has taught me people skills and how to communicate and how to value those things in life that we take for granted every day."
