About Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande is the stage name of a pop / R&B singer and songwriter from the United States.
She has also started a career in acting.
Even if she was born in California, her name has Italian influences and, as she herself said, she is half Abruzzese and half Sicilian.
As a child, she began by acting at the Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theater and began performing in musicals such as "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Wizard of Oz".
Deciding to start her career as a singer even since she was only 13 years old, Ariana thought about an R&B album. She performed in the Broadway musical "13" and she managed to win a National Youth Theatre Association Award. In 2009, she got signed on Nickelodeon for the New York show "Victorious". This role got her to be viewed as a teen idol. In 2011, she performed the track "Give It Up" for the "Victorious: Music from the Hit TV Show" soundtrack.
Republic Records were impressed and signed her and by December 2011 she released her first single, titled "Put Your Hearts Up".
After continuing to star on Nickelodeon even after Victorious was canceled, she worked with a British singer called Mika on the single "Popular Song". Her acting career continued as well, with "A Snow White Christmas", where she played the role of Snow White.
Her first album was titled "Yours Truly" and got released in the summer of 2013.
The album became a great hit, selling well over 100.000 copies from the start. "Yours Truly" also managed to hit the top of the Billboard 200 and was received greatly internationally as well, with several top ten charting ranks.
In just a year, the album managed to get certified Gold by the RIAA thanks to sells adding higher than 500.000 in the US.
Billboard’s magazine placed Ariana Grande on the fourth place of the "Music’s Hottest Minors 2013" list. In 2013, she starred in another Nickelodeon creation, the movie "Swindle".
Ariana also collaborated with Nathan Sykes for the song "Almost Is Never Enough".
She even managed to tour alongside Justin Bieber and soon after she started her own tour, titled "The Listening Sessions". A great feat for the year 2013 was that she was the winner of the "New Artist of the Year" award at the American Music Awards.
In 2014, Ariana started working on her second album, together with Ryan Tedder, Max Martin and Benny Blanco.
he start of the year made her the winner of another award, the "Favorite Breakout Artist" from the "People’s Choice Awards". After performing twice at the White House, she won another award, the "Breakthrough Artist of the Year", designated to her by the Music Business Association.
Her second studio album is called My Everything and was released in the summer of 2014, having the same success as her first one.
