Beth Jacoby

Beth Jacoby is an actor, teacher, and freelance writer living in Chicago. A graduate of Northwestern University’s School of Speech, Beth’s varied career has ranged from voicing hundreds of commercials, to appearing in professional stage productions and industrial shows throughout the United States. As the creator of Wordsworth Poetry Programs, Beth’s mission has been to bring a love of literature and the spoken word to Chicago area students.

A desire to help young people address the issues of bullying and exclusion led Beth and her composing partner, Larry King, to write “The Power of One.” It is their hope that choral groups throughout the country can play an important role in combating this serious problem through the performance of this song.
