Jack Wright's Tribute to Neil Diamond

Jack Wright fell in love with the spotlight and the microphone as a small child, and the "entertainer" in him found expression from high school through college in musical theater and classical music performance, and that might have been his career path - except for the economic reality that pop singers in lounge acts make more money.

During a continuous 13-year stint as a cover artist, he went from playing behind chicken wire in a cowboy bar to years of bookings at luxury hotels and resorts throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The path to a "new life adventure" led him to pursue a degree in broadcast communications, but his creative writing skills led him into advertising. Soon, he was producing and directing corporate business shows worldwide. Next, he did documentary video production. How about a completely unexpected transition to contemporary Christian music and the chance to make a difference, eventually as a World Vision performing artist.

Widowed in 2007, Jack was searching for a new path, and in Napa, CA, found Julie. Six years of following a new life-path as a husband-and-wife production team resulted in more than 100 videos for non-profit organizations.

The ever-present attraction to live performance led to a whimsical offer to put together some Neil Diamond songs for a small charity event. And it worked! Jack Wright has emerged, not as an impersonator, but as a natural live performer of the best of Neil Diamond's music and stories.
