BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

Chuck Jackson

Chuck Jackson (born July 22, 1937) is an American R&B singer, who was one of the first artists to record material by Burt Bacharach and Hal David successfully. He has performed with moderate success since 1961. His hits include “I Don’t Want to Cry,” “Any Day Now,” “I Keep Forgettin'” and “All Over the World”.

He was born in Latta, South Carolina, but was raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Between 1957 and 1959, he was a member of The Del-Vikings, singing lead on the 1957 release “Willette.” After leaving them, he was “discovered” by Luther Dixon when he opened for soul legend Jackie Wilson at the Apollo Theater. He signed a recording contract with Scepter Records subsidiary Wand Records. His first single, “I Don’t Want to Cry”, which he co-wrote, was his first hit (1961). The song charted on both the R&B and pop charts. In 1962, Jackson’s recording of the Burt Bacharach-Bob Hilliard song “Any Day Now” became a huge hit and his signature song. His popularity in the 1960s prompted him to buy up the time on his contract from Scepter and move to Motown Records. There he recorded a number of successful singles, “Honey Come Back.” He later recorded for All Platinum and other labels, but with minimal success.

After meeting producer/composer Charles Wallert at the Third Annual Beach Music Awards, the two collaborated to record “How Long Have You Been Loving Me” on Carolina Records.

In 1998 Jackson teamed with longtime friend Dionne Warwick to record “If I Let Myself Go”, arranged as a duet by Wallert for Wave Entertainment. The recording received critical acclaim and charted at number 19 on the Gavin Adult Contemporary Charts. Jackson followed with “What Goes Around, Comes Around”, another Wallert production and composition, and reached number 13 on the Gavin Charts.
