Here at MP! Towers we are devoted to scouring the earth in order to find you the level of pop that you deserve. Overseas, in the States, one young lady has been causing quite the stir. Her name is Ariana Grande and if you haven’t heard of her, you certainly will soon. She has a Mariah Carey-esque voice (without the Mariah Carey-esque attitude) and looks set to be a global star. Here are 5 things you need to know about Ms. Grande, because we’re nice like that.
In a pop world dominated by Disney alumni, Ariana is breaking the mould (sounds like the beginning to an ad for an epic movie, doesn’t it?). Ariana started out playing Cat in the Nickelodeon sitcom ‘Victorious’. In her role as Cat she also featured on three ‘Victorious’ albums imaginatively titled ‘Victorious’, ‘Victorious 2.0’ and ‘Victorious 3.0’. The character of Cat was so popular that after ‘Victorious’ finished, she was enlisted to star in a spin-off with iCarly character Sam, and what could this show possibly be called? Sam & Cat (like Sam & the Womp but with Cat instead).
It was easy to tell that Ariana was an insane talent, even from an early age. She was a soloist with various symphonies and even sang the National Anthem on a live broadcast of a Florida Hockey Game. She made her broadway debut at the tender age of 15, where she played Charlotte in the musical ’13’. AND if that’s not enough, at the age of 10 she founded a charity singing group called “Kids Who Care” who performed at charity fundraising events.
If you are still not convinced of this girls talent, then why not listen to a professional. X Factor US judge, Demi Lovato, has tipped Ariana to be a huge household name and said her vocals “are just unbelievable”. Ariana is equally in awe of Demi and said that the ‘Heart Attack’ singer sounds amazing. We smell a duet in the future.
Speaking of duets, the 19 year old pop starlett also featured on a track with Mika. The duet was named ‘The Popular Song’ and was based on the song from ‘Wicked’ the musical. It’s an upbeat and instantly catchy track, and you can watch the bewitching video right here:
Now that you know all you need to know about Ariana Grande, why not sit back, relax and enjoy her latest single. ‘The Way’ is the lead single from her debut album ‘Daydreamin’ which is due out later this year. You can thank us later.
