Lovato started in show business as a child and rose quickly. At fifteen, she was a bona fide TV star cultivating a promising singing career.

The song was produced by The Suspex and co-written by Lovato.
Demi, which was released in 2013, is Lovato’s most personal album to date, and is an affirming celebration of life.

Lovato was an early adopter on social media, and has developed incredible support across her various networks, allowing her to engage and communicate directly with her fans across the globe.
With all of her professional accomplishments, Lovato remains devoted to giving back.

She used Seventeen as a platform to discuss her personal issues as a part of a larger campaign called “Love is Louder than the Pressure to Be Perfect,” directed towards teen girls. After revealing that she had been bullied at the age of 12, Lovato has also supported numerous anti-bullying organizations. In 2012, she was named the ambassador for Secret’s “Mean Stinks,” an anti-bullying campaign to inspire students to “gang up for good” against girl-to-girl bullying. She also serves as an official Ambassador for the youth empowerment event We Day and the organization Free the Children, which works domestically and internationally to empower young people to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens. Lovato appeared on a celebrity edition of The Price Is Right, earning almost $50,000 for Free the Children. She launched the Demi Lovato Charity Boutique on eBay, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the organization to help children in developing communities around the world.
