Fair Trade Services artist Jack Cassidy made two TV appearances this week sharing his personal, vulnarable story of overcoming addiction, which is also the inspiration behind his current single, “Run At The Giant.”

On Monday, the singer/songwriter made a special appearance on The Doctors, sharing his personal story of how addiction almost took his life, and how after an overdose, he asked God for help and was able to quit cold turkey. Check out the episode here.

Later in the week, Cassidy was interviewed on the new JUCE TV program Kingdom Thinking, where he shared even more about overcoming his drug use, depression and beyond during a special series on Faith & Mental Health. That episdode can be seen below

While “Run At The Giant” may be his first single, the 21-year-old singer-songwriter was also a contestant on The Voice in 2017 on Team Alicia Keys and has had music in his blood since the day he was born. His grandmother (Shirley Jones) was the mother in the Partridge family and an Oscar award winning actress, while his uncles (David and Shaun Cassidy) were both teen pop stars. Cassidy’s parents also have had active careers in show business for many years.

Life wasn’t easy behind the scenes for most of his family, including for his Uncle David in particular, who had a continuous problem with alcoholism which eventually led him to an early death at 67. Cassidy saw many of his choices leading him in that same direction, consistently battling depression and anxiety which led to a desire to self-medicate and numb the pain, and eventually severe addiction.

“One night in the midst of an overdose I felt like I was about to have a heart attack,” he recalls. “I dropped to my knees and begged God to save me and keep me alive. I firmly believes God was the only reason I got through that night. I’ve been sober many years now. The turn was when I really got to know the peace about who God is and I live for that now. Like the story of David & Goliath in the Bible, with God’s help, the Giant got his butt kicked. I really hope that when you listen to this song, you will think about its meaning and it can encourage you to defeat the giants in your life.”
