Jacarada was born in Pahokee, FL to Bishop R. L. & Karen Banks Jr. She is the oldest of 3 girls and singing was their favorite things to do, while growing up. After graduating from high school, she was accepted into Johnson C. Smith University and moved to Charlotte, NC.

While in college she began to sing with John P. Kee & The New Life Community Choir. She graduated from JCSU with two degrees in Business Administration. In all these things, which were indeed a blessing and brought many life lessons, the most impacting lessons were to never forget where you come from and what you were taught.
In 2006 Damali was formed. JB and her two younger sisters have always sang together while attending their home organization: Bible Church of God. Their first album “Penetrate My Heart” was conceived. It was where JB discovered that God had endowed her with the gift of writing and “Jac Bae Publishing” Company was created. This record touched the lives of many, but noticeably the lives of many youth!
In 2011 her ministry was continuing to transition in an area that was uncomfortable. She’s never wanted to be a soloist or a teacher. She’s now ministering the Word of God in a facet that is changing the way our young people desire to live.

After being appointed to direct the Youth Department during the VIP Conferences for 6 years, her heart would hurt at our generation genuinely devoting only one week of their year to God. They would be so excited about this fellowship, but afterwards would fall back into old habits. “Worship to Live, Inc.” was birthed. After the youth would minister the song “Worship to Live”, they would live as though “They got it”! To know God in the essence of Worship could actually allow them to take pleasure in living a Christian Life. She is determined to continue to work in the avenues God has ordained her to Minister in! JB believes that If we don’t know how to Worship God we will never live the life he has for us to enjoy! Jacarada was born in Pahokee, FL to Bishop R.
