Star Search Winner: Jake Simpson

Star Search Winner: Jake Simpson

by Jake Simpson



Twenty-nine-year-old vocalist Jake Simpson was the first winner of CBS' reconstituted Star Search talent contest. His victory netted him the tidy figure of 100,000 dollars in prize money. But it also guaranteed a recording contract with Sony/Columbia. This is an introductory EP, quickly produced to capitalize on Simpson's name recognition. It includes the three songs he sang during his appearances on the program, as well as tasteful renditions of five other vocal-heavy songs. A full-length debut of original material is planned for summer 2003.

I am old enough to be his grandmother and let me tell you he brought tears to my eyes when he sang. I wish him all the best and if he doesn't make it big there is something wrong with the way he is promoted.

Well deserved win on Sar Search, has a humbleness that many stars do not, combined with his well trained perfect voice mesmorized me the first time I saw him, I hope he keeps those qualities through his career. Big fan from Kingston, Ontario, Canada

Jake Simpson is the most talented artist to hit the stage in a long time. Star Search should be proud of him. He is better than any American Idol talent contestant.

Jake Simpson is on his way to super-stardom!!! He has an amazing vocal range and sings with great passion!!! I wish that I could give him 100,000 stars!! The album is all good, but he really shines on "Isn't she Lovely" and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered"

I am a professional musician who has worked with Jake Simpson in the past, and I simply want to add, You Ain't Seen Nuttin' Yet. I know how much he can do, and believe me, the best is yet to come. Vocals are great, production was done quickly. I give it **** (4 stars), only because I know what else he can do. For instance, did you know Jake also plays piano and keyboards, and has done quite a bit of theater?

When we saw him on Star Search we thought he was awesome...we could not wait until the next show to see him again...we are from Missouri & got to see the clips of him on our local news, called our children to watch him, they love him too...We just went to his concert last night...he was awesome again...we were surprised that he played the keyboard...Just can't believe his talent..

Jake was phenominal when he sang "Isnt She Lovely" that has got to be the best rendition of that song I have ever heard. I love Jake and I hope to hear more from him!!!! ---Machelle---

Jake has demonstrated his wonderful technique and facility with this CD. He has one of the best voices on the pop scene today. Not only does he have a great range, but his tone is outstanding. This is the only CD in my life that I have purchased without first hearing it and even before it's release!! So many pop "stars" hide behind their promoters and choreographers, yet Jake demonstrates he truly has the one thing MANY of them lack--TALENT!!!!

Mid-Missourians are proud of Jake Simpson. His tireless persona has won many hearts in his home state and across the country. We appreciated what he did in the Star Search competition and now he comes home to greet his fans. Yes Jake, you have many fans in Missouri. As you sign your name in silver, may your music turn to gold! God Bless you from Jefferson City.
