Jay White is America’s Diamond
A musical tribute to the incomparable Neil Diamond


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. Validation came from Hollywood Director Ron Howard, who in 2008 cast Jay to play Neil Diamond in the Academy Award nominated film “Frost/Nixon”. In 2002, Jay began his 8 years as a Las Vegas showroom headliner at the Riviera, sparking national interest and recognition. Leeza Gibbons of “Entertainment Tonight” wrote: “He’s uncanny and truly amazing!” While Ron Howard said, “Your portrayal of Neil Diamond was excellent.”

In 1996 and again in 2002, White met Diamond before his Vegas MGM appearances, where Neil told Jay to “keep up the good work” and autographed a photo of the two signing, “Jay, keep singing, so I can stay home and relax, your friend in music.”

From passionate crowds rushing the stage at corporate events, to 1500 enthusiastic alumni at Princeton University, to the cheers of some 18,000 screaming fans in several Salt Lake City performances, White is grateful that his years of hard work and dedication are still so convincing and so appreciated.
