Belmont University alumna and contemporary Christian singer Julianna Zobrist opened game four of the 2016 World Series on Oct. 29 in Chicago with her rendition of “God Bless America.” Julianna lives in Franklin with her husband Ben, who plays for the Chicago Cubs and was named the World Series MVP after hitting a double in the 10th inning of Game 7, securing the Cubs’ 8-7 win over the Cleveland Indians. The victory marked the first World Series title for the Cubs since 1908.
Julianna spends the majority of her time touring the country, giving performances and spreading the message of God’s kingdom at conferences and universities. She has released two extended plays and one studio album, titled “Shatterproof,” that was released on July 1. She is also the mother of three young children.
In 2014, Julianna and Ben published their first autobiography “Double Play: Faith and Family First” with help from bestselling author Mike Yorkey. The book discusses the ways in which the Zobrists keep their values in line throughout their mutually busy careers.
