Who Is JoJo?
JoJo, born Joanna Noëlle Levesque, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress from Brattleboro, Vermont. By age 7, she was already appearing in TV shows like “Kids Say The Darndest Things” where she sang a song from Cher.
She auditioned for the show “Destination Stardom” by singing Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” and “Chain of Fools.” She was later invited to perform on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and an episode of “Maury” when she was 11 during a “kids-with-talent” episode.
Although she was offered a record deal when she was only six years old, her mother turned it down because she thought she was too young for a music career. However, in 2003, at the age of 12, JoJo signed with Blackground Records and began to produce her first record.
After releasing her hit single “Leave (Get Out)” in 2004, she began to go on tour and has been putting out hits ever since.
