Blurring the lines between R&B and pop music with her vocal range and dexterity, JoJo is becoming a notable voice in the world of pop music. Raised in Massachusetts, JoJo, born Joanna Noëlle Blagden Levesque, drew the attention of Blackground Records (Aaliyah, Timbaland) after the singer competed on the television show America’s Most Talented Kids in 2003. Eventually signing a record deal with Blackground, Levesque balanced her time between acting and singing for a few years before choosing to focus primarily on singing and finally landed a deal with Atlantic Records.
