Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande, in full Ariana Grande-Butera (born June 26, 1993, Boca Raton, Florida, U.S.), U.S. pop singer and actress who burst onto the pop music scene in the early 2010s and became one of the genre’s most successful artists , known for her four-octave range.
Grande began singing and acting at a young age. In 2008, she won a role in the Broadway play 13 and soon appeared in small roles in television shows. Her big break came in 2010 when she landed a role in the Nickelodeon TV series Victorious. She played Cat Valentine, a teenager who attends a performing arts school. After the sitcom was canceled in 2013, she starred in the spin-off show Sam & Cat (2013-14).
While pursuing her acting career, Grande perfected her singing. In 2011, she released the single “Put Your Hearts Up” (she later disparaged the song and music video for its teen vibe). Her debut album Yours Truly was released two years later and included the popular single “The Way,” a collaboration with rapper Mac Miller. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and was widely praised. With her R&B-inspired pop music and impressive vocal range, Grande earned comparisons to Mariah Carey.
With this success, Grande began to shift her focus to music. Her second album, “My Everything,” was released in 2014 and established her as a pop star. The recording, which also debuted at number one, featured collaborations with singers such as The Weeknd, Iggy Azalea and Childish Gambino (Donald Glover). “My Everything” and the song “Bang Bang,” featuring Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, earned Grande her first Grammy nominations.
For Dangerous Woman (2016), Grande collaborated again with well-known artists such as Lil’ Wayne and Minaj. In May 2017, a suicide bomber killed more than 20 people in an arena during her tour in support of the album after a concert in Manchester, England. Grande then organized a benefit concert to raise funds for those affected. Among the stars who attended the event were Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. In 2018, Grande released a four-part documentary series on YouTube called Dangerous Woman Diaries. It included behind-the-scenes footage from the tour as well as clips from the making of her next album, Sweetener (2018).
