Skai Jackson, the 18-year-old television and social media star, hit the cover of 360 MAGAZINE.

A competitor on the 29th season of ABC’s hit television series “Dancing with the Stars,” Jackson is mostly known for her role as Zuri Ross in the Disney Channel show “Jessie” and its spin-off series “Bunk’d,” as well as her social media presence. Her cover with 360 MAGAZINE was featured on “Dancing with the Stars,” and you can see it right here.

Now, she is partnered with Alan Bersten in the popular ballroom dancing competition.

She danced the tango with Bersten to Nicki Minaj‘s “Super Bass” in the first week of the show and scored a 21 out of 30 from the three judges.

In the second week, she danced the samba to Ne-Yo‘s “Miss Independent.” The duo scored their lowest score up to this point in the competition with a 15, but they were saved while Charles Oakley and Emma Slater were eliminated.

Jackson and Bersten then danced the jive to “Almost There” from “The Princess and the Frog.” They scored an 18 and moved on to the next round.

Week four saw the two dance the foxtrot to John Legend‘s “Ordinary People.” Jackson dedicated the dance to her “Jessie” co-star Cameron Boyce, who died at the age of 20 in 2019.

She spread the word about dedicating the dance on Twitter.

“Just got off stage…I did my thing for Cameron tonight,” she tweeted.

She also encouraged viewers to donate to the Cameron Boyce Foundation, a program that honors Boyce with a goal to end gun violence and cure epilepsy. Combining an issue that affected Boyce personally with an issue he was passionate about, the foundation aims to be the bridge for people who want to help but don’t know how.

To help, you can follow the Cameron Boyce Foundation on Instagram, donate and encourage others to get involved.

The dance scored the first ten of the year from Carrie Ann Inaba. It also received nines from Derek Hough and Bruno Tonioli, giving it a total score of 28, the highest score of the season at the time.

The two danced jazz in the fifth week to “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis & The News for the show’s 80’s night. Set to a “Back to the Future” backdrop, the costumes completed the feel of the movie and the dance scored a 24.

Week 6 will air Wednesday night on ABC, and Jackson and Bersten will dance the cha-cha-cha.

Platinum-selling electronic artist, violinist, and multi-talented entertainer Lindsey Stirling has found a variety of new ways to connect with her worldwide fanbase this year, despite coronavirus upending her world tour to support her latest #1 album Artemis. To help families with dire economic needs as a result of COVID-19, Stirling created the charity outreach program The Upside Fund and, since its launch in April, has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to help. Today, June 30th, Stirling is announcing that The Upside Fund, named after her single “The Upside,” is now open to accepting tax-deductible donations and has extended its reach to include anyone with immediate economic assistance (such as housing/rent, utilities, medical bills, food) as a result of all of the events that have transpired recently across the globe. The goal of The Upside Fund, a project of Community Partners, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, is to help anyone in desperate need of financial assistance, PRESS HERE  for more information or to apply for assistance.

“All of us have felt the effects of COVID-19,” shares Stirling. “If this would have happened when I was just starting out, it could have been the end of my career. With so many people at risk of losing everything, I knew I had to do something. I started encouraging my fans who are struggling financially to apply for assistance through my website so that I can try to help. Those of us fortunate enough to be able to give back have a responsibility to do whatever we can to help those who are in jeopardy during this hard time. It’s time for us to come together with our communities and lift where we stand.”

Stirling has also been creating content during quarantine and reaching her fans through the weekly virtual series String Sessions, which recently launched as a full podcast on all platforms. String Sessions began in early May and has featured Andy Grammer, Amy Lee from Evanescence, JP Saxe x Julia Michaels, Gabby Barrett and Johnny Rzeznik of Goo Goo Dolls.

In tandem with the widespread launch of The Upside Fund, this week’s episode features GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Jewel and showcases Jewel’s latest single “Grateful” – PRESS HERE to stream/download on all digital platforms. Each episode of String Sessions opens with an acoustic performance of one of her guest’s songs accompanied by a string arrangement created by Stirling followed by an in-depth interview.

New episodes will continue to debut on her YouTube every Friday, with the podcasts available on Mondays featuring extended interviews. PRESS HERE to to watch past episodes and PRESS HERE to listen to the podcast.

“It was so fun to work with an iconic artist like Jewel but, even more than loving the song, I love who she is and what she stands for,” adds Stirling. “In our interview, she shared a lot about her personal story, and it left me feeling so uplifted and inspired.”

Stirling also recently released the official music video for Artemis track “Between Twilight” featuring Derek Hough set amidst a magical fairytale to watch. Artemis, released September 2019 via BMG, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums Chart and remained on the chart for 15 combined weeks.

The 13-track album, which has surpassed 100 million total streams, also features the singles “Underground,” “Artemis,” “Sleepwalking” and “The Upside” featuring multi-platinum singer/songwriter Elle King along with “Love Goes On and On” featuring Amy Lee.
