Teenage pop dynamo Jadagrace, who was discovered by LMFAO’s Redfoo, will perform her debut hit single, “Run Dat Back,” on Saturday at the Taste of Soul Community Stage.
The track, which earned Jadagrace major buzz on Radio Disney, is the first single from Jadagrace’s upcoming debut album for Epic Records. She is currently working with veteran record executive Kerry Gordy and Epic’s Tricky Stewart, who has produced tracks for Beyoncé and Justin Bieber, among many others. R&B legend Smokey Robinson has been mentoring Jadagrace in the studio and has lent his vocal and production talents to the project as well.
Jadagrace shows off her performing chops in the dance-driven video for “Run Dat Back,” which features her own choreography and an appearance by LMFAO’s Redfoo. The video premiered recently on VEVO.
Last year, Jadagrace embarked on a 50-show tour that included performing at schools across Southern California, which she will continue to do in 2013. She also recently sang the National Anthem in front of 50,000 cheering fans at Dodger Stadium.
The 13-year-old singer, dancer, and actress is already a triple-threat who got her start from the legendary Debbie Allen at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy at the age of three. In addition to being a gifted singer and dancer, Jadagrace is an accomplished actress, landing the role of “Star” in the 2009 action movie Terminator: Salvation, alongside Christian Bale and Sam Worthington.
Jadagrace also has her own television series, The Jadagrace Show (a series about a 12-year-old girl who gets her own television show after a video she uploaded on the Internet goes viral). Her song, “Run Dat Back”, was included as a “new artist” track on volume 42 of Now That’s What I Call Music in 2012 and released her first single entitled “Express Yourself” when she was nine years old.
This super talented and gifted teen is so dynamic her many gifts couldn’t be wrapped before opening.
To say that she came into the world, singing, dancing, acting and bringing bountiful joy to all would be short circuiting it.
