About Demi Lovato
Singer, songwriter and actress Demi Lovato was born August 20, 1992, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to engineer and musician Patrick Lovato and former country music artist and Dallas Cowboy cheerleader Dianna Lovato. Demi put those performance genes to work early, appearing on Barney for two seasons from 2002 to 2004 and then on a series of Disney Channel shorts called As The Bell Rings.
In 2008 Demi played the lead role of aspiring singer Mitchie Torres in the Disney Channel TV movie Camp Rock. The movie, which also starred the Jonas Brothers, premiered to 8.9 million viewers. Demi also appeared on the movie soundtrack singing “We Rock” and “This Is Me,” then toured with the Jonas Brothers before dropping her own debut album, “Don’t Forget.” The album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts and was an iTunes top seller.
The following year proved even bigger for Demi, both with the release of the Disney TV movie Princess Protection Program, co-starring Demi’s real-life best friend Selena Gomez, and the start of her own Disney TV series, Sonny with a Chance. Demi released her second album, “Here We Go Again,” which topped the Billboard charts, and toured again with the Jonas Brothers.
“Ms. Lovato has a kind of alt-Disney aesthetic, simultaneously building the brand and proving its elasticity,” The New York Times wrote of Demi.
Demi again joined the Jonas Brothers in 2010’s Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam but cut her tour short to deal with personal issues. She returned to performing in 2011, releasing her third album, Unbroken. The album debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard charts and included the hit single “Skyscraper.”
Demi returned to the small screen in 2012 as a judge on X Factor and then in a recurring role on the hit show Glee in 2013. Also in 2013, she released the book, “Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year.” The New York Times bestseller shared Demi’s personal affirmations and how she tackles her struggles and recovery from bulimia. And she released her fourth album, the self-titled Demi.
“The singer has a strong grip on her skills as a performer but is still chiseling away at the formula that works best for her as an artist and is unwittingly putting that self-discovery on display here,” Billboard wrote of the album. “‘Demi’ … demands attention for fully capturing a singer’s personality at a fascinating moment in her career.”
Romantically, Demi has been linked to Wilmer Valderrama, Joe Jonas, and Trace Cyrus.
