Cheyenne David Jackson (born July 12, 1975) is an American actor and singer-songwriter. His credits include leading roles in Broadway musicals and other stage roles, as well as film and television roles, concert singing, and music recordings.

After beginning his acting career in regional theatre in Seattle, he moved to New York and was an understudy in Thoroughly Modern Millie (2002) and Aida (2003). He next originated the role of Matthew in Altar Boyz (2004). Jackson's first leading role on Broadway was in All Shook Up (2005), which earned him a Theatre World Award for "Outstanding Broadway Debut." Since then, on the New York stage, he has starred in The Agony & the Agony (2006), Xanadu (2007; Drama League, Drama Desk nominations), Damn Yankees (2008), Finian's Rainbow (2010; Drama Desk nomination), 8 (2011), The Heart of the Matter (2012) and The Performers (2013).

In 2009, YouTube sensation character Miranda Sings demanded that he be her "boyfriend," not realizing he was openly gay. She later announced they were no longer together because "he never called me to go on a date."

In addition to his Broadway cast albums, he has released two albums of popular music, including a joint album called The Power of Two with Michael Feinstein in 2008.
