Born Joanne Noelle Levesque, JoJo rose to international stardom after being discovered through the television competition show America's Most Talented Kids in 2003. Her work with Blackground Records resulted in a string of chart-topping Pop/R&B jams and slow songs, including "Leave (Get Out)," "Baby It's You" and "Too Little Too Late." She has since released three albums, JoJo, The High Road and Mad Love, with the first two being re-issued in 2018. Her live vocal performances are just as stellar as the studio recordings. Aside from singing, dancing and collaborating with other artists, JoJo has also appeared in several shows and movies.

Amid troubles with her recording label that started in 2008, JoJo found a new career in acting. She starred in the television film True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet as well as appearing in Aquamarine alongside actress Emma Roberts and RV with comedian Robin Williams. She also voiced herself in the 2004 animated film Shark Tale. On the television front, JoJo guest-starred in a handful of shows, including Hawaii Five-O, Romeo! and Lethal Weapon.
