The music realm is home to some of the world’s brightest stars and greatest talents. With the number of artists and musicians making their way into the industry, it can be hard for fans and listeners to keep track of every song, record, or album that has been released. However, some names have created such a significant impact that their legacies continue to live on for years on end. As a matter of fact, Demi Lovato is one of those whose artistry has made a difference and has touched millions of lives from across the globe.
Aside from her insane vocals and smash hits, Demi Lovato is also known for her strength in rising above adversities and overcoming multiple backlashes. After going through her fair share of trials and tribulations, the singer has finally blossomed into the person she wants to be. With the release of her latest album, “Dancing with the Devil … the Art of Starting Over,” she unveils her struggles and sends across the powerful message that she is ready to embrace the new chapter of her life.
Born on August 20, 1992, Demetria Devonne Lovato, more prominently known as Demi Lovato, is an American singer and actress. Her mother, Dianna, is a former country music recording artist. Growing up, the artist won several talent contests and performed in famous venues, such as the Eisemann Center and the Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving Day halftime show with singer LeAnn Rimes.
Demi Lovato began playing the piano at the age of seven. At that time, she realized how passionate she is about music. She then learned to play the guitar and started writing her own songs. When she was only ten years old, she kicked off her business career by becoming a series regular on the children’s television show “Barney & Friends.” After her stint on the said show, she guest-starred on the television dramas “Just Jordan” and “Prison Break.”
On September 23, 2008, Demi Lovato released her first album, “Don’t Forget,” which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. This was then followed by her second album, “Here We Go Again.” Years later, the artist continued to gain nods from fans and listeners by releasing more smash records like “Unbroken,” “Confident,” and “Tell Me You Love Me.”
Although Demi Lovato’s life seemed perfect, her success blinded everyone from underlying personal issues that she struggled with. She drew attention when she released her single, “Sober,” last June 2018 when she admitted to relapsing after six years of sobriety. A month after, the artist was rushed to the hospital for an apparent overdose.
In her 2021 documentary, “Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil,” she revealed that she suffered from a heart attack and three strokes after the overdose she endured in 2018. Aside from talking about her previous experiences and struggles, the documentary also sheds light on the kind of person Demi Lovato is trying to be today. After everything that she has been through, the singer has finally achieved the peace and freedom that she had been deprived of in the past years.
