Singer, songwriter, producer and musician, Gerald Cassanova is one of Central Florida's brightest stars. Since his debut more than twenty five years ago, Cassanova has written, produced and recorded several multi-tune projects, some of them R&B some Gospel. Along with being a talented artist, he has maintained the position of a high school Assistant Principal with the Seminole County Public School System for 14 years. His first solo album, 'Jus' Another Love Affair' released in 1992, netted Cassanova critical R&B reviews throughout the southeast. In 1998 he released his second major project, 'Two Faces'. This was an innovative mixture of R&B and Contemporary Gospel. This project garnered not only critical acclaim from his R&B contemporaries, but also unprecedented respect from his fellow Christian followers. 'A Few Good Men', released in 1996, became Cassanova's first project to sell out as soon as it was released. With such phenomenal success, it is no wonder that his contemporaries have likened Cassanova to a Luther Vandross with a Kurt Franklin attitude. In spite of the accolades and recognition, Cassanova remains remarkably humble and devoutly Christian. From the many long nights of singing in dimly lit, smoke filled lounges to the bright light and noisy crowded dance floors of night clubs to spirit filled leads in the church choir, the hard work, sacrifices and perseverance has paid off. It was 'time well spent'. He has become a versatile artist. Cassanova usually travels with a 17 member concert convention band while on the road and performing in concert halls throughout the world, but he is also an acclaimed solo act. Cassanova's latest project, 'Highest Praise' is slated for release in the summer of 2001. This project highlights Cassanova, some of his family members, and a few of his closest friends. It is a collection of songs that reflect Cassanova's religious walk and beautiful demonstration of his spiritual growth through titles like; Merciful Father, Blame it on The Father, Lifted, With Thee In Heaven, Promises, Angels, Club Heaven, Minds Made Up and the title cut Highest Praise. The road chosen thus far have been a mixed bag of pitfalls and successes but a strong foundation deeply rooted in the church, the unrelenting support of his family and friends has kept Cassanova solidly grounded in reality.
