Who says televised therapy can't help? In 2016, Cassie Jackson spent her vacation with her mother, Shar Jackson. However, they weren't by the beach with a drink in hand. They were in a mansion --but all that glitters isn't gold. Inside the home, they participated in intensive treatment. Through the experience, the women learned to love ... but from a distance.
Almost a year later, Cassie and Shar were spotted at the Sundance Film Festival. They came to support the Foundation for Autism Acceptance Worldwide. As they endorsed the charity, PopWrapped interviewed Cassie about her reality show and rap.
"I'm actually working on a show with my mom and my siblings; it's focusing on music," the entrepreneur says. She drew inspiration from her mother's colleagues' musical talents. Their passion and pursuit inspired Cassie. Now that she's older, she's chasing her dreams, too.
"I was in a pop group for about six years ... I'm starting to venture off and do my own solo music," she relays. Cassie Jackson's even written a few of her own songs! They've been published, so fans might hear them on the radio. They won't hear her rap, though.
"I can't rap to save my life," Cassie promises. She has the looks and the pitch, but Shar has the moves and the bars. "[My mom] got all of the rapping skills," she states.
When Cassie was a teenager, Shar competed in Celebrity Rap Superstar. Similar to Dancing with the Stars, the program paired celebrities with hip-hop gurus. Instead of dance-offs, the men and women challenged with their lyrics and rhymes. If they failed, then the competitors faced a panel of judges -- and the world.
While Cassie saw her mother's performances, she never desired the stage or its spotlight. "I needed to be involved in music," she asserts. Her devotees don't have to worry. Whatever Cassie chooses, she'll make her voice heard.
