Demetria Devonne Lovato is an American singer-songwriter, musician, actress, and anti-bullying spokesperson who rose to international stardom following her starring role in the 2008 Disney Channel Original Movie, Camp Rock. Prior to her major breakthrough, Lovato had a recurring role as Angela in the children's television program, Barney & Friends. She made her debut on the Disney Channel short series As the Bell Rings in 2007.
Lovato is good friends with the Jonas Brothers (who also started in Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2), and dated Joe Jonas for a time in 2010. She toured with them in 2008 and 2010, and appeared in their concert movie Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. They also co-produced her first album Don't Forget, and wrote and co-wrote several of the album's songs. She auditioned for a role on their television series Jonas, but did not get the part. On July 18, 2012, Nick Jonas joined her in Los Angeles on stage at the Greek Theatre during her Summer Tour 2012, and performed the songs "Don't Forget" and "Catch Me" with her.
Lovato starred in her only Disney Channel Original Series as Allison "Sonny" Munroe in Sonny with a Chance. In 2011, Lovato departed from the show. In October 2010, she punched a background dancer on the Jonas Brothers tour, and in November, she checked herself into a treatment center dealing with physical issues and an eating disorder. In 2011, she released an album called Unbroken, about her struggles.
Lovato began working with Disney again in 2013 to perform the Pop version of "Let It Go" for the animated feature film, Frozen. She also portrayed Hayley May in the Grey's Anatomy episode "Shiny Happy People" and appeared in season 5 of Glee.
Her song, "Confident" appeared in the international trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming and in the Horror-Comedy Happy Death Day.
