JoJo Biography & News
Child star finally grows into her big voice (Created February 20, 2013)
She started singing when she was just 27 months old. By age 7, she appeared on the television show "Kids Say The Darndest Things" and took part in numerous other talent exploits. And at 13, she became the youngest solo artist to have a Number One single in the United States.
With her unusual vocal range and mature song selections (think Aretha Franklin's "Respect" and "Chain of Fools"), JoJo (born Joanna Levesque) caught the attention of industry executives at a time when a crush of tween female singers were dominating the charts. Her big break came in large part to an appearance on "America's Most Talented Kids," and by the time she was 13 she had signed her first recording contract.
JoJo's first single, "Leave (Get Out)" showed her appeal to a wide audience was evident. The song raced up the charts, and her debut album "JoJo" climbed to number four on the U.S. Billboard 200 and No. 10 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. She co-wrote three of the album's songs and co-produced one full track, but some critics had mixed and unfavorable reviews for a teen that had yet "to really grow into her big voice."
A second album for the songstress, "The High Road," bowed in 2006 and was the last studio album she has put out to date. What followed were several tumultuous years in which she filed a lawsuit against her record label for putting her in 'musical limbo.' She was eventually released from her contract and a deal was reached to make Interscope Records distributing label. She has since spent time working on mixtapes and other musical ventures.
An accomplished actress, JoJo has done everything from local theater to radio, commercials, television shows and films. Her latest film, "G.B.F." is currently in post-production and set for release in 2013. A third album is also in the works, though the project still has no announced release date.
