Why should you listen to her?
Name at birth: Demetria Devonne Lovato
Teen singer Demi Lovato starred alongside the Jonas Brothers in the 2008 Disney Channel movie Camp Rock. Lovato played Mitchie Torres, the shy underdog who blossoms at music camp while singing the signature tune "This is Me." (The duet with Joe Jonas was released as a single in 2008.) A petite brunette, Lovato sings and plays guitar and piano. She began acting at age six, when she landed a role as one of the friendly moppets on the TV show Barney and Friends. Disney used Camp Rock to launch Lovato into a its standard orbit of stardom: she toured with the Jonas Brothers in the summer of 2008, and was given her own Disney Channel TV series, Welcome to Mollywood (due in late 2008), and movie, Princess Protection Program (due in 2009, and co-starring her real-life friend Selena Gomez). Lovato is often compared to another Disney teen star, Miley Cyrus.
Lovato met her close friend Selena Gomez when both were in the cast of Barney and Friends... Lovato had a modest hit in 2008 with a jangly version of "That's How You Know," the theme first sung by Amy Adams in Disney's 2007 movie Enchanted.
