David Cassidy has managed to stay at the top of his game for over four decades, with a unique ability to reinvent himself and adapt to numerous genres, from concerts to theater, television to Las Vegas, and even actor and singer to producer, writer, and director, all with a demographic that crosses three generations. He rose to stardom in The Partridge Family and became the biggest TV and performing phenomenon in history by the time he was 20. From television to recording and record-breaking concert tours, and from Broadway and London's West End to Las Vegas production shows, Cassidy has made his mark.
Before the end of 1970, the year that The Partridge Family premiered, Cassidy had the top-selling single and record of the year, garnered multiple Grammy nominations, and won a Golden Apple Award. Over the next five years, membership in his official fan club exceeded that of Elvis Presley and The Beatles. Those were only the first of many records Cassidy broke in his long and constantly evolving career. 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," "Breaking Up is Hard to Do," and of course, "I Think I Love You," the best-selling hit of 1971. As a solo artist, his hits include "Cherish," "Could It Be Forever," "How Can I Be Sure," "Rock Me Baby," and "Lyin' to Myself." To date, his records have sold well over 30 million copies worldwide and have been recognized with over 24 Gold and Platinum certifications, including four consecutive Multi-Platinum LPs.
In addition to the superstardom he has enjoyed as a singer, songwriter, and producer, Cassidy still thinks of himself as an actor. In addition to the phenomenal success of The Partridge Family, his credits also include the television film A Chance to Live, which earned him an Emmy nomination as Best Dramatic Actor, his work in Time on London's prestigious West End with Sir Laurence Olivier, and his starring roles in Broadway's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Blood Brothers. He was also the driving force behind the multi-million dollar extravaganza EFX, which played at the MGM Grand casino in Las Vegas, and he recently starred in the ABC Family series Ruby & The Rockits. As he continues to perform and tour globally, he perpetually reminds the world that it is nothing but talent, creativity, and tenacity that keep people turning on the television, coming to his shows, and buying his recordings.
