Meet the New ‘Little Mermaid’ Star Halle Bailey

Published

on

With news that Halle Bailey has nabbed the starring role in Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, many were left to wonder just who exactly the up-and-coming star is. 

Though an “extensive search” was underway to find an actress to take on the coveted role of the Disney princess, director Rob Marshall says that apart from Bailey having a “glorious singing voice” she also “possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence and substance” that are the “intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role.”

The 19-year-old singer-actress and Atlanta native may seem like a newcomer to Hollywood, but Bailey has already made a name for herself with a slew of successful works in film, television and music. 

From having Beyoncé as a mentor to co-starring alongside Yara Shahidi in Grown-ish, The Hollywood Reporter takes a look at the young star’s accomplishments so far.

Music:

Bailey and her sister, Chloe, 21, first got their start by posting cover videos to YouTube. Eventually, as Chloe x Halle, they released an EP in 2016 titled Sugar Symphony, which spawned two singles “Drop” and “Fall.” “Drop” has more than 5 million views on YouTube, while “Fall” has racked up more than 1 million.

In 2017, the duo dropped another EP called The Two of Us, which featured the hits “Used to Love” and “Too Much Sauce.” The project was named one of Rolling Stone‘s Best R&B Albums of 2017. That same year, Chloe x Halle released “Grown,” which became the theme song for the Black-ish spinoff, Grown-ish.

In 2018, Chloe x Halle released their debut album, The Kids Are All Right, which they wrote and executive produced themselves. The music was also prominently featured on season one of Grown-ish. The Kids Are All Right also features their track “Warrior,” which was featured on the soundtrack for Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time.

At the 61st annual Grammy Awards, The Kids Are All Right was nominated in the best urban contemporary album category, and Chloe x Halle were nominated for best new artist.

A tap of a table task card additionally skilled a $100 gift to the reason, affability of American Express. “It’s something other than the gathering, it’s the give-back,” rehash participant Biggs Burke, record executive and Roc-A-Fella fellow benefactor, reminded TIME. “As a matter of first importance it’s for a decent aim.
