Aussie born Jacobsen, dubbed "The Dashboard Diva" and "The GPS Girl" is best known to millions of drivers for her anonymous work as the voice of the navigational device "Siri," but wait til you hear her sing! (And, of course, there is a connection to the world of soaps: with her songs having been included on soundtracks to shows like Dawson's Creek and Passions.) Karen, also a sought after motivational speaker, is a popular cabaret singer on the NYC circuit, having recently performed at the Triad Theater.
"I met Karen through my work with Australian Television," Nelson says, "and we hit it off immediately. Much of my show is about the influences of TV and pop culture and she really 'gets' it. In fact, she's a bit of a modern-day Olivia Newton-John!"
