Trevor Jackson is the definition of a triple threat. At only 22 years old, he has already made a name for himself as a successful singer/songwriter, dancer and actor who believes in taking his career into his own hands.
Jackson’s first steps into showbiz began with a three-year stint as Young Simba in Disney’s Tony Award®-winning Broadway National tour of “The Lion King.” Following that success, he made his transition to television appearing on shows such as the SyFy original series “Eureka,” CBS’ “Criminal Minds,” Disney Channel’s blockbuster hit “Let It Shine,” as well as “Harry’s Law” for which he received the 2012 Young Artists Award in the category of “Best Performance in a TV Series – Guest Starring Young Actor 14-17.”
In 2013, Jackson jump-started his solo career by releasing his debut EP, “#NEWTHANG” (Atlantic Records), which delivered fan-favorite tracks such as “Drop It” (feat. B.o.B) [Remix], “Know Your Name” (feat. Sage the Gemini), “Like We Grown,” and “Me Likey” (feat. Kirko Bangz). The videos for these hits alone garnered over 11 million views combined and counting.
Named as one of Ebony’s “25 Young Guns of Black Hollywood,” he has most recently been cast in Freeform’s hit series “grown-ish”, a spin-off of ABC’s popular “black-ish.”
