Her first rendezvous with the world of entertainment was through the ‘Broadway’ musicals ‘Beauty and the Beast’ production, and ‘The Wizard of Oz’.
She had also been a part of the ensemble of various television shows, but later she decided to devote all her attention mostly towards a singing career. She made her singing debut with the album ‘Yours Truly’, which shattered several records and ruled the ‘Billboard Top 100’ chart for more than a whole month.

Her father Edward Butera ran a graphic design firm, while her mother Joan Grande was the CEO of ‘Horse-McCann Communications. Before Ariana’s birth, for some domestic reasons, her parents had to leave New York and to shift Florida, when her mother Joan was pregnant with her. She completed her primary education at ‘North Broward Preparatory School’, and ‘Pine Crest School’.
Ariana Grande was very fond of singing and acting from a very young age. That’s why she used to take part in tableaus and was an active member of the school drama society. She had even worked on two plays, known as ‘The Wizard Of Oz’, and ‘Beauty And The Beast’. She did appear on national television at a very young age when she performed her song ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’.
To chase her acting, and singing dreams, Ariana Grande moved to Los Angeles at the age of 13 with a desire to record her own R&B album. Unfortunately, the managers of record labels didn’t give her complete credit for creating the album and didn’t take her too seriously, as they thought her too young.

She was only thirteen when she discontinued her studies for a brief period to concentrate on her work.
Ariana Grande got a breakthrough in 2009 when she was chosen to star in the sitcom ‘Victorious’, which was aired by ‘Nickelodeon’. She was playing the role of Cat Valentine in the play.

The next year, her song ‘Give it Up’ from the soundtrack of ‘Victorious’ was released, and hit the chartbuster.

Soon, Ariana Grande signed a contract with the label ‘Public Records’ in late 2011, and her first single ‘Put your hearts up’ was released worldwide.
