Randy Jackson’s fearless and forward-thinking mentality, along with a lifelong passion for music, has guided him from musician, songwriter and Grammy Award-winning producer to revered record-industry executive, business entrepreneur, best-selling author, talent manager, television producer and beloved global television personality. Jackson produced and performed on hit records by Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Steven Tyler, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, Van Hunt and Madonna, to name just a few.
He's also lived in the rock ‘n’ roll world, recording and performing with legendary musicians such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Keith Richards, Journey, Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir and countless others. All in all, he has more than 1,000 Gold and Platinum plaques to his name, with collective sales exceeding 200+ million copies. However, it is Jackson’s 13-season stint as judge on “American Idol” that made him a household name and pop icon.
