Jojo        

Pop/R&B Singer-Songwriter and Actress; Known for her Hit Song "Too Little Too Late"

Growing up on the outskirts of Boston, MA, JoJo listened and learned as her mother practiced hymns. She started singing by imitating her mother, but she quickly put her own spin on everything from nursery rhymes to pop tunes. An ad in the paper announcing open auditions for the television show "Kids Say the Darndest Things: On the Road in Boston" lead to the young singer wowing the audience along with the show's host, Bill Cosby.

Her appearance led to a phone call from Oprah Winfrey offering Jojo a spot on her show. Her big break was on the television show "America's Most Talented Kids," which got the attention of from Vincent Herbert, the former Aaliyah, Toni Braxton and Destiny's Child producer. He signed the young singer to Blackground Records and arranged sessions with famed producers like the Underdogs and Soulshock & Karlin. Her eponymous debut album followed in June 2004. Since that time, Jojo has added actress to her résumé, starring in the comedies "Aquamarine" and "RV" with Robin Williams.

She released her sophomore effort, The High Road, in 2006. The lead single "Too Little Too Late" broke the record for the biggest jump into the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, moving from number 66 to number three in one week. The mixtape, titled Can't Take That Away from Me, was released in September 2010 and spawned the single "In the Dark." From there, she made cameo appearances in music videos and did small collaborations with other artists.

In 2011, her single "Disaster" was released to U.S. radio and became a spokesperson for Clearasil.

Her third studio album is in the works as of 2013.
