Trevor Jackson

There aren't many freshly 21 year olds who have already brokered a singing career, brought down the house on Broadway and successfully warmed up network television. In fact, there are only very few entertainers today who are worthy of making a bid for the coveted EGOT, but multi-threat Trevor Jackson is one of them. After breaking out as young Simba on Broadway as a child, Jackson has found himself a Netflix favorite and ABC go-to, after his mother encouraged him to attend a casting for what became hit anthology series American Crime. Now, Jackson stars alongside Yara Shahidi as the primary heartthrob on Black-ish spin-off, Grown-ish, navigating Black manhood in an increasingly tense political climate. As if that wasn't enough, Jackson has also released his debut album, Rough Drafts Pt. 1, a coming-of-age collection of songs written and recorded by the young star in his living room to comply with the concept that no project, including life, should be perfect — there is always room for a re-draft. This young multi-hyphenate is undeniably the entertainer to have your eye on for 2018.
