JACKIE RICHARDSON

Well known for her multitude of work on stage, screen and studio, Jackie Richardson is highly recognized in Canada and a star in her own right.

Born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Jackie moved to Toronto when she was very young. She began her career at the age of 7 singing in her church choir. In 1964, at the age of 17, Jackie went on to perform in her first group.

Since then she has acted in film, theatre and television and toured across Canada and the world performing with renowned artists such as Ray Charles, Anne Murray, Dr. John and Celine Dion to name a few.

Jackie has also appeared in films directed by Sidney Lumet and Norman Jewison. She has starred opposite Christopher Reeve, Sidney Poitier, Jane Seymour and Keifer Sutherland as well. Jackie has also hosted radio, television and stage shows garnering rave reviews wherever she appears.

Jackie has won many awards including a Canadian Black Achievement Award and been nominated for a Juno, Gemini, and AMPAC award.

In 2003 Marshmellow Records released Jackie’s Debut CD “A Woman’s View Through A Child’s Eyes”. The album is an experience of soul, a profoundly personal synthesis of the remarkable gospel, blues and jazz woman she has embodied on stage and screen.

Jackie continues to act on stage and screen today and can be seen throughout Canada and the U.S.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
