JoJo

Singer / Actor

Born: 20 December 1990
Birthplace: Foxboro, Massachusetts
Best known as: Singer of "Leave (Get Out)"

Name at birth: Joanna Noelle Levesque

Pop Singer Joanna "JoJo" Levesque's 2004 debut album, JoJo, featured the hit songs "Leave (Get Out)" and "Baby It's You," and made her a media star at the age of 14. Raised in Massachusetts, she got her big break on the Bill Cosby TV show Kids Say the Darnedest Things, singing the Aretha Franklin classic, "Respect." That led to an appearance on Oprah's television show, a tryout on America's Most Talented Kids and, ultimately, a record contract. Her mature R&B style and multi-octave vocal range helped make her one of the youngest pop stars of 2004 and her career was off and running. Her second album, High Road, was released in 2006 and included the hit song "Not That Kind of Girl." JoJo expanded her career to include acting, and landed roles in the films Aquamarine (2006) and RV (2006, starring Robin Williams). After a few short-lived television ventures, she released a third album, Jumping Trains, in 2011.
