From television to recording and record-breaking concert tours and from Broadway to Las Vegas production shows, David Cassidy has made his mark and been lauded with awards and nominations ranging from Grammys to Emmys and many more. Hailing from a family of actors, mother Evelyn Ward and father Jack Cassidy, his fate as a performer was essentially seeded at a young age. It was by coincidence that he wound up starring with stepmother Shirley Jones in the hit sitcom, “The Partridge Family” which ran on ABC for a total of four seasons where he played the role of oldest son and the band’s lead singer, “Keith Partridge.” Before the end of 1970, the year that the show premiered, Cassidy graced every teen magazine cover in the world, had the #1 selling single of the year, garnered multiple Grammy nominations and won a Golden Apple Award. Over the next five years, membership of his official fan club exceeded that of Elvis Presley and The Beatles. To date, Cassidy’s records have sold well over 35 million copies worldwide and have been recognized with over twenty-four gold and platinum recordings including four consecutive multi-platinum LP’s. He was responsible for seven chart-topping Partridge Family singles including “Doesn’t Somebody Want To Be Wanted,” ”I Woke Up In Love This Morning” and of course, “I Think I Love You” … the best selling single of 1971. As a solo artist, Cassidy has had hit singles including “Cherish,” ”Could It Be Forever,” ”How Can I Be Sure,” ”Rock Me Baby” and “Lyin’ to Myself.” He has also enjoyed a successful acting career which included a guest starring role on the highest rated episode of the NBC series, “Police Story” titled “A Chance To Live” which earned him an Emmy nomination for “Best Dramatic Actor.” He has appeared on Broadway having starred in the original production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” In 1996, Cassidy moved to Las Vegas to star at the MGM Grand in the $75 million extravaganza, “EFX.” He then went on to work with Emmy Award winning writer-producer Don Reo where they created and produced two new Vegas shows, “The Rat Pack is Back!” and “At the Copa.” Cassidy went back into the recording studios in 2002 releasing the album, “Then and Now” which made it into the Top Five in the UK and reached platinum status. His next album, “A Touch Of Blue” was then released a year later. He continues to tour across North America and throughout the UK and Australia. Cassidy currently resides in Florida with his wife, songwriter Sue Shifrin-Cassidy and their 17 year-old son, Beau.
