Two years after signing with InRage Entertainment, actress and musical theatre performer Chyka Jackson filmed her debut music video in Pearblossom, California, a city devastated by the California wildfire known as the #BobcatFire. Chyka was invited to film the beautiful tribute, directed by Nick Conroy, by a resident who’s home had been completely ravaged by the fire. The resident is featured in the film and says that he held back his emotions over the loss until the day of filming.

“The song, Chyka explains, “was originally about a relationship where I felt trapped. With all of the social unrest, injustice, wildfires and chaos of 2020, I continued to develop the song with Ebony Rae Vanderveer (InRage owner and vocal/songwriting coach) over Zoom during quarantine. Then, my InRage family told me they had the perfect director for the video. And the result is more moving and beautiful than I ever imagined.”

Chyka Jackson is a multi-cultural artist who is African American and Filipino American. She was raised mainly in the US and has also lived in the Philippines as a toddler. When Chyka was very young, her mom noticed that there was a big sound coming out of such a small body! “Maybe she’s meant to sing,” thought her mom, and promptly enrolled her in music classes. Chyka’s first on-stage experience was at the age of five where she performed with voice teacher Dalilah’s Rising Stars in Walnut Creek, CA. Since then, she was hooked and although Chyka was born with a congenital heart defect called Epstein’s Anomaly, it did not stop her or even slow her down. Throughout her childhood and into adulthood, Chyka has continued to call the stage her home by attending an arts high school, Arizona Conservatory for the Arts and Academics (ACAA), and later receiving her a BFA: Musical Theater degree from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in Los Angeles, CA. After graduation, she has been blessed to perform in multiple shows. She starred as Lil’ Inez in the Hollywood Bowl’s production of Hairspray alongside Nick Jonas and John Stamos and performed in Aladdin in Utah’s Tuachan Arts Center. Earlier this year, she performed for the opening of Oprah’s 2020 Vision tour at the Los Angeles Forum. Chyka believes that music is the one medium that is truly universal. Her goal is to have her music inspire others to live joyfully and with purpose.
