Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is one of the most influential pop singers of our time. Before her rise to fame as a singer, Ariana was involved in performing arts from a young age. She began her career in entertainment at the age of eight when she appeared in the Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theater production of ‘Annie’.
Ariana’s passion for acting led her to pursue roles in other stage productions, including ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast’. She also appeared in several television shows such as ‘Victorious’ and ‘Sam & Cat’. Her breakout role came in 2010 when she was cast as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon show, ‘Victorious’.
Aside from acting, Ariana had a passion for music and started posting covers of popular songs on her YouTube channel. Her talent was recognized by music executive Monte Lipman, who signed her to his record label, Republic Records, in 2011. This was a turning point in Ariana’s career, as she began to focus on her music and released her debut single, ‘Put Your Hearts Up’ in 2011.
Despite the initial success of her debut single, Ariana’s big break came in 2013 with the release of her debut album, ‘Yours Truly.’ The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, and Ariana became a household name. Since then, she has released multiple chart-topping albums, won numerous awards, and cemented her place as one of the biggest pop stars in the world.
