"I Wanna Be David Cassidy" by Ken Sharp, a new tribute song to the late ‘70s music and television icon, has just been released as a digital single with a limited-edition vinyl 7-inch 45 RPM single also in the works.

"I've been a major fan of David Cassidy and The Partridge Family for 47 years and was so rocked and saddened by David's sudden and tragic passing, I felt I needed to do something more than mourning his passing to honor his memory and what he meant to me. And then it came to me, write a song…While the girls wanted to be with David Cassidy, I wanted to be like him and ‘I Wanna Be David Cassidy' captures my long-standing admiration for his enduring artistry."

Penned and performed by Ken Sharp, an L.A. based singer/songwriter with four acclaimed albums to his credit, the song was written on the day Cassidy passed away and was recorded over two marathon sessions at Reseda Ranch Studios in Reseda, CA and The Manor in Toluca Lake, CA. Produced by Ken Sharp and Fernando Perdomo (Dave Kerzner/Jakob Dylan/Linda Perhacs), the song features musical backing by Sharp, Perdomo and Rob Bonfiglio (Wanderlust/Wilson Philips).

"I Wanna Be David Cassidy" premiered worldwide on renowned DJ Rodney Bingenheimer's radio show on Sirius XM's "Underground Garage" on November 26, 2017, the day after it was finished.

Sharp forged a friendship with Cassidy through the years, working with the artist on his 2007 autobiography, Could It Be Forever?: My Story, and co-penning liner notes for various Partridge Family releases, The Partridge Family Album, Up To Date, Sound Magazine and Shopping Bag, as well as contributing liner notes and interviews for Come On Get Happy: The Very Best of The Partridge Family. More recently, Ken and his band opened a show for David Cassidy in February 2017 at The Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA, which was one of the last shows Cassidy ever performed.

Ken Sharp's latest album, 2015's New Mourning, landed on numerous best albums of 2015 lists and earned raves in The Huffington Post, American Songwriter, Music Connection, Goldmine, New Depression and more.

Jetfighter Records and Sofa King Vinyl have partnered to release a limited 7-inch 45 RPM single of "I Wanna Be David Cassidy" b/w "Let's Be Friends." 100 copies need to be reserved for this pressing to happen. The release will be mastered for vinyl from the original 24-bit mixes and all who pre-order will get a download of both songs. https://qrates.com/artists/SofaKingVinyl/items/14834

All proceeds from the single will be channeled to David's charity of choice, The Alzheimer's Association (https://www.alz.org).
