Coming from an established musical family is a double-edged sword. While it makes it easy to pursue music, it makes it doubly hard to carry the legacy. Jack Cassidy finds himself in this position. His grandmother, Shirley Jones, acted in the 1970s musical sitcom The Partridge Family. So one can say that the young star has music in his blood. However, that didn’t make things easy for him on The Voice 2017 as there are so many other talented singers in the competition. Who is Jack Cassidy” We have details from Jack Cassidy’s wiki.

The Pain of Unrequited Love
Then came the dreaded Battle Round. Hunter Plake and Jack Cassidy faced off and sang a soulful rendition of the Robyn song “Dancing on My Own.” Cassidy sang each note perfectly, with the lyrics and tone of the song clearly coming through in his voice. Though it was a tough call, Keys ultimately decided that Cassidy was the winner of the Battle Round. She said that Cassidy had an awesome stage presence and he filled the room with his beautiful voice.

Officially on Team Gwen, Hunter Plake will also be competing in the Knockouts.
