New York, NY (Top40 Charts) UK Singer/Songwriter Ali Jacko has just released his highly anticipated new music video "Somebody To Love" which is the 7th release of his "11 in 11" project, releasing 11 songs/videos in 11 months.

Ali Jacko is a Five Times World Kickboxing Champion turned Singer/Songwriter. Having well and truly conquered the world of fighting (and community relations!), his singing career started inauspiciously with everyone telling him, in no uncertain terms, that he couldn't sing. 'I went on a tour from Toronto to San Francisco on a coach. Everyone was singing along on the coach but as soon as I started everyone was like, "Shut up! You can't sing!'" They should have known that 'you can't…' is not how you start a sentence when it's directed at Jacko.

It was only when he lost a girl that he really loved that he decided to win her back in the riskiest way he could think of: with his voice. 'I went to see a vocal coach and he also said I couldn't sing but, with a bit of work, I sang Bryan Adams' "Look Into My Eyes" and sang it well. Then I thought, "If I can sing, I will write my own music", and wrote my first song soon after.'
But did it win the girl back? 'Yeah, it won her back and now I'm married to her and we've got a five-month-old daughter called Leonore.' Silly question really.

Jacko Ali's new challenge is to break into music - and as a close friend of Rohan Marley, son of Bob and husband of The Fugees' Lauryn Hill - he knows what the inside of that industry looks like. With his track record, it would be a foolish person that would bet against him. With his usual target-based attitude to challenges, Jacko has decided to release eleven songs, with eleven videos, over eleven months. And though they all have that gravelly rock voice in common, the songs demonstrate a real range with subjects veering from the desire to settle down, plenty about falling and being in love and one about how we are destroying the planet.

'No one's done this before,' says Jacko of the '11 in 11' project, releasing 11 songs in 11 months, 'I want to do it to prove a point that I'm a serious artist.' We would advise no one to stand in his way. Follow Ali Jacko on Twitter @TheAliJacko
