R&B’s newest voice, Jac Ross, has soul-stirring vocals that tell struggle and success stories. The Live Oak, Florida native, has a rich heritage for music and continues to “wow” listeners with his warm, melodic tone.
In an exclusive interview with Baller Alert, Ross tells us about the impact of his song, going on tour for the first time, and more.
In a short time, the Darkchild Record/ Island Records signee has impacted the Black Community. In 2020, the artist released the powerful single “It’s Ok to be Black.” Ross originally wrote the song for his 4-year-old daughter, and the track later became the backdrop to the NBA’s Black Lives Matter campaign.
The singer said he expects the song to remain as one of the anthems of our community for a very long time. “I’m honored that the black community chose a song by me,” said Ross. I have great expectations of that song for the future of African Americans.”
Ross mentioned that The Stand by Myself Tour would begin in Boston, Massachusetts, on February 8th. This is his first time going on tour. “I’m super excited about this tour — I’ve put a lot of literal tears and late-nights in for this opportunity,” said Ross. The songwriter said all good things that happen in his career are expected because he’s put in the time, energy, and effort.
New York City is a place Ross is looking forward to performing in during his tour. “Right before the pandemic, I was supposed to have a huge show there, and it never got to happen,” he said. “I’m ready to go to New York and give them what they want.”
Artists like Adele, Given, Silk Sonic and Jazmine Sullivan were named as some of the singers Ross is looking to collaborate with in the future. “There’s so much great talent out there. Those are just a few names,” said Ross. He said there are many more artists he’s looking to collaborate with soon.
