About Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato rose to musical fame alongside the Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus, a new generation of Disney stars finding mainstream success on the pop charts. She forged her own path, though, thanks to powerhouse vocals, a balance of vulnerable ballads and club-ready bangers, and her advocacy for mental illness and addiction issues. Born in 1992 in Albuquerque and raised in Dallas by her mother, a former Cowboys cheerleader, Demetria Lovato hit it big with the 2008 movie Camp Rock and released her debut studio album, Don't Forget, the following year. That record was the first step on her ascension from teen star to global icon, a status she’d cement through hit singles, collaborations with artists like Christina Aguilera, Luis Fonsi and Timbaland, and a turn as a judge on The X Factor. Lovato’s discography has something for every playlist, like the warm-weather bop “Cool for the Summer”, the self-affirming anthem “Confident”, and the stunning heartbreaker “Anyone”, which she told Apple Music was, in retrospect, “a cry for help” about her struggles with substance abuse. Demi’s openness about her personal life and raw, honest songs like “Sober” made her even more beloved by fans worldwide, while 2020’s polished pop gem “I Love Me” and Sam Smith duet “I’m Ready” proved she’s a still-evolving star who continues to inspire and amaze.
