Cassie Ventura Gossip - All About Cassie

Cassandra Ventura:

Born August 26, 1986 in New London, CT. Cassie got her gorgeous looks from her Filipino father and her African-American mother.

Big Time Support Group:

In March 2006, Sean Diddy Combs signed Cassie to his Bad Boy record label. Rumor has it that the two are more than just business partners if you catch my drift.

Cassie is also affiliated with Tommy Mottola, who discovered Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez.

Personal Quote From Cassie :

"Everything has been beyond my wildest expectations. I feel very lucky. I'm really happy that my music is affecting so many people."

One Smart Cookie:

In 2004, she graduated from the preparatory Williams School in Connecticut. During her time there, she played a dwarf in her school's production of Snow White.

Early Aspirations:

At the tender age of 14, Cassie began working as a model for the Wilhemina Agency in New York City. She appeared in ads for Delia's, Adidas, and Abercrombie & Fitch.

First Time's a Charm:

In August 2006, Cassie released her self-titled R&B debut album. Her hit single "Me&U" quickly shot to the top of the charts.

Her Inspiration:

Cassie said that her idols include superstar Mariah Carey and singer Janet Jackson.

Musical Roots:

It's easy to see where she gets her musical talents from as her mom is a pianist and her father plays the trumpet.
