Jasmine Villegas Signs With
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Jasmine Villegas, the multi-talented actress/singer who has amassed a huge teen following over the course of her career, has just signed with Interscope Records.
The 19 year old San Jose native’s rise to fame comes by way of not only featured roles on hit television shows, but through numerous nationally televised music performances. Her electrifying vocal ability earned her a spot on Justin Bieber’s 32-city My World Tour and impelled the subsequent success of her 2011 mixtape, “S(he) Be(lie)ve(d).”
Singer songwriter Ester Dean shares her praise for the young talent stating, “Jasmine is a Super Star in the making. She shines brighter every day with her perseverance and dedication to a craft that she chose for herself at such a young age. Her time is now and I personally believe she’s one feather away from her beautiful wings.”
Villegas has already proven herself as an artist. “S(he) Be(lie)ve(d)” yielded three successful buzz tracks: Jealous, Werk, and Just A Friend. Released in 2011, the 9 track mixtape delves into an array of topics in a way that is both edgy, yet clean; a balance which the young star has mastered.
“I’m just a simple girl living out my dreams and am so excited to join the Interscope Records family,” says Jasmine.
Discovered at age 11, Villegas perfected her skills under the direction of music mogul Dame Dash’s Dash Music Group, and current manager, Gabriella Mosci. That same year, she garnered much attention after an impressive rendition of the national anthem at a Los Angeles Clippers game. Since then, Villegas has gone on to perform at over 15 sporting events, including the Mayweather vs. Ortiz boxing match; an appearance which generated enough buzz to land her a spot as the #1 trending topic on Twitter. For the past few years, she has travelled throughout the United States and overseas performing. In turn, Villegas has solidified both an international presence and fan base.
Villegas’ impact is evidenced by her popularity on social media. In 2012 she was listed as the #3 Most Powerful Woman on Twitter and the #1 Top Twitter User in Los Angeles by TweetGrader.com. She was also named the #9 Most Influential Musician on Twitter by Klout.com. She currently has over 1.6 million Twitter followers, her Facebook likes have exceeded 750,000, and her Instagram followers have almost reached 500,000.
Aside from music, Villegas has had guest-starring roles on several shows, including, “That’s So Raven,” “My Wife and Kids,” and “The Suite Life of Zach and Cody.” She has appeared in print advertisements for American Girl, Levi’s, Girl Scouts, and more. As well, she is involved in several non-profits including L.A.’s Best, Geffen Playhouse, and the Boys and Girls Club of America.
Jasmine Villegas is currently working on her debut album.
