For over 25 years Jay White has continued to stretch his singing and acting talents, while reflecting the stage persona of one of the world’s best loved musical icons. His 8 year run headlining on the Las Vegas Strip is the longest ever by a solo tribute artist, and his 9 year run during the 90’s with the multi million dollar production “Legends in Concert” was also unequaled. Leeza Gibbons of “Entertainment Tonight” wrote: “He’s uncanny and truly amazing!,” while Jay Leno said, “you do a great job.”
Since 2010, Jay and his band continue to perform nationwide and around the world including Canada, Australia, South America and the Philippines. After over 9000 unforgettable performances, Jay is grateful that his years of hard work and dedication are still so convincing and so appreciated.
And then the Singer became an Actor! Validation of Jay's film work came from Hollywood Director, Ron Howard, who in 2008 cast Jay to play Neil Diamond in the Academy Award nominated film “Frost/Nixon”. And in 2011 Jay was cast as the lead in a fictional musical drama film entitled “Beautiful Noise” - a story about a down and out singer/songwriter whose musical career was revived after his encounter with a beautiful young muse who stole his heart.

The Hollywood experience was all Jay expected and more as he walked the photographer lined red carpet of the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills with his wife Pam for the Premiere of FROST/NIXON. The after party was filled with TV and movie celebs like Frank Langella (Richard Nixon), Michael Sheen (David Frost), Kevin Bacon, William H. Macy and many more.
It was also an honor for Jay working and chatting with Director Ron Howard during the film. He was very grateful that Ron selected him for the role of Neil Diamond. Jay also enjoyed getting to know Michael Sheen, whose talent and kindness helped make the entire experience very memorable.
Beautiful Noise is a modern day musical drama that follows the journey of a determined, free-spirited young singer who searches cross country for an aging pop-rock icon from the sixties to secure the rights to rerecord his unreleased ‘lost’ album, which she’s certain will make her a huge star. After locating the reclusive, bitter ex-songwriter in a rustic, backwoods old-Florida town, the beguiling young woman overcomes the harsh, initial rejection by the downtrodden has-been and ultimately breaks through and forms a special bond with him. The unlikely romance that ensues sets into motion a series of twists and turns that culminates in an unforgettable finale. A mystical tale powered by a variety of original songs and vibrant performances from the multitalented ensemble cast, the emotionally-charged film ultimately helps us understand that Inspiration often comes when you least expect it - and that, in the end, everything we need to succeed is already within our reach.
