Kira Shcherbakova from Philadelphia, PA will sing at Jacob's Well on Friday, May 5. Doors open at 7, with live music starting at 7:30 pm.
Kira was born in Kiev, Ukraine and moved to the United States with her family at the age of 10. She learned English within a few months and began dreaming of becoming a famous, professional singer. “I went to different venues, asking to sing, but got rejected every time. One restaurant owner even said, ‘My worst singers are better than you.’ It was heartbreaking!”
One day, she was invited to sing at a Mother's Day church concert, to which she said, "I'm Jewish. I can't go into a church." The women persisted, however, and Kira changed her mind. This was an opportunity to sing, after all. When she arrived, she was surprised to see that the people were happy and accepting, quite unlike what she’d seen elsewhere. She talked to the pastor and he answered all the questions she had for years about life and the meaning of it all. She realized that what she had been looking for all this time was God and His direction. So, she repeated the prayer of repentance and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. “I realized that God made me and has a special purpose for me,” she says, “to sing for Him and about Him.”
After much consideration, she decided to leave her full-time job and follow God in starting a music ministry. He showed her that He gave her the voice and wants her to use it for Him. And that's what she’s doing. This is her first appearance at Jacob's Well, and a rare New England performance. Please join us for an anointing evening.
