WSSU Cheerleaders star in Ciara music video

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — Members of the Winston-Salem State University Powerhouse Red and White Cheerleaders are featured in the music video for Ciara’s new song “JUMP.”

The Powerhouse and their coaches, NeSheila Washington and Tevin Allen, all flew to Los Angeles for the shoot in early spring.

“When the sun came up, it looked like we were in New York City,” Washington said. With some Hollywood magic, the set was transformed, and the team was dismissed for hair and make-up to prepare for the day. “They had a different crew member assigned to each cheerleader. Seeing crew members swoop in during the day to touch up make-up or provide small water bottles with straws was so cool. It made me feel like a proud mother watching it all happen.”

The experience was a dream come true for the Powerhouse.

Dance Captain Destiny Martin said, “my background is in dance, not cheer. Seeing all the dancers I’ve been watching on Instagram since middle school was incredible. Being in the studio with these dancers was amazing. It was also nice to see that these professional dancers started right where we are and now have successful careers.”

Red Team Captain William Johnson said, “being there was very inspiring. I wanted to be a backup dancer since I was very young. I come from a small town, so the dance programs there weren’t great. Being so busy and focusing on my school work at WSSU made me feel like I could never achieve my dream of being a professional backup dancer. This trip and the experience of working with Ciara made me see that achieving my dream is really possible.”

The opportunity presented itself to the team through a direct message on Instagram from one of Ciara’s dancers who saw the team online and thought they would be a great fit for the song.

“Ciara’s team was fantastic. The thing that impressed me the most is that they had watched our videos on Instagram and TikTok and were very familiar with our moves. They even knew each of the cheerleaders’ names and the positions they usually held during the Powerhouse routines,” Washington said.

Despite the life opportunity that presents itself, the Powerhouse still kept priority on their academics first.

“We went to LA during finals week.” Cheerleader Tiffany Jacobs said, “I woke up at 5 a.m. to take a final exam. Getting up early, being on set all day, and still being able to do a good job with my coursework made me feel like anything is possible. We did one of our finals in an Uber on the way to the beach. We always have to make sure that we plan and that school is our main priority.”

The video for “JUMP” can be viewed on YouTube and the song is available on most music streaming platforms.
