Coming from a family with a long history in show business, intimate song details artist's story of fame, personal setbacks, and redemption
Jack Cassidy, on Friday, debuted his very first single, "Run At The Giant," available digital and streaming platforms. Cassidy comes from a family with a long history in show business along with many setbacks that were covered by The Christian Post in a video that premiered on Thursday. The official track drops to radio beginning September 4.
Even with being his first single, this 21-year-old singer-songwriter, in 2017, participated on The Voice on Team Alicia Keys.
Life hasn’t been easy, especially for his Uncle David who had dealt with a continuous problem with alcohol which eventually that eventually led his death at the age of 67.
Cassidy ended up dealing with drugs as a way to cope with the pain while also battling depression and anxiety.
"One night in the midst of an overdose I felt like I was about to have a heart attack," he recalls. "I dropped to my knees and begged God to save me and keep me alive. I firmly believes God was the only reason I got through that night. I've been sober many years now. The turn was when I really got to know the peace about who God is and I live for that now. Like the story of David & Goliath in the Bible, with God’s help, the Giant got his butt kicked. I really hope that when you listen to this song, you will think about its meaning and it can encourage you to defeat the giants in your life."
