==Demetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato== (/ˈdɛmi loʊˈvɑːtoʊ/ dem-ee loh-vah-toh or lə-vah-toh; born August 20, 1992) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. After making her debut as a child actress in [[Barney & Friends]], Lovato rose to prominence in 2008 when she starred in the [[Disney Channel]] television film [[Camp Rock]] and released her debut single This Is Me which peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100. The success of the film and its soundtrack resulted in a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Her debut album, Don't Forget (2008), debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200. The following year, Lovato was cast as the titular character of the television series Sonny with a Chance and she released her sophomore album, Here We Go Again, which became her first one to top the Billboard 200 chart.
====After the release of==== additional television films and their soundtracks in 2010, including Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, Lovato's personal issues put her career on a hiatus and led to the discontinuation of Sonny with a Chance after a second season. She entered a treatment center in November 2010 to seek help for addictions, an eating disorder, and self-harm. While there, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Work on her third studio album, Unbroken (2011), began after she successfully completed treatment. The album addresses several of her difficulties. Its lead single, "Skyscraper", became Lovato's second top 10 entry in the US, while its second single, "Give Your Heart a Break", was certified triple platinum in the country. Lovato was a judge and mentor on the American version of The X Factor in 2012 and 2013. Her third album, Demi (2013), opened with first-week sales of 110,000 copies. The lead single from her eponymous album, "Heart Attack", became her third top 10 in the US and the album spawned three more singles. While promoting the project, Lovato released a book titled Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year (2013). She also returned to acting as a recurring character in Glee, and released a memoir in 2014. Lovato's fifth album, Confident (2015), reached number two on the Billboard 200. Its lead single "Cool for the Summer" was eventually certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. All five of Lovato's albums have received a gold certification in the US.

Lovato has received a considerable number of accolades, including an MTV Video Music Award, 13 Teen Choice Awards, five People's Choice Awards, an ALMA Award, a Latin American Music Award and a Grammy Award nomination. In 2013, Maxim ranked her 26th on its Hot 100 list and Billboard ranked her second on its Social 50 Artists of the Year list. Outside the entertainment industry, Lovato has been involved with several social and environmental causes since the launch of her career. In May 2013, she was cited for her dedication as a mentor to teens and young adults with mental health challenges at a National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day hosted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in Washington, D.C.. She has also become an advocate for the LGBT community, and women's rights. In 2014, she was announced as the Grand Marshal for LA Pride week, and that same year she became the face for Human Rights Campaign's Americans for Marriage Equality Campaign.

===Life and career=== ====1992–2006: Early life and career beginnings==== ====Lovato was born==== on August 20, 1992, in Albuquerque, New Mexico to engineer and musician Patrick Martin Lovato (1960 — June 22, 2013) and former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Dianna De La Garza (nee Dianna Lee Smith; born August 8, 1962). Lovato has an older sister, Dallas (born February 4, 1988); a younger maternal half-sister, actress Madison De La Garza; and an older paternal half-sister, Amber, to whom she first spoke when she was 20.
====Lovato's parents==== divorced in the late summer of 1994, shortly after her second birthday. Lovato's father was of Mexican descent, and also had distant Portuguese and Jewish ancestry, while her mother has English, Irish and Italian ancestry. Through her father, Lovato is a descendant of Civil War Union veteran Francisco Perea (1830–1913) and Santa Fe de Nuevo México governor Francisco Xavier Chávez. Through DNA testing Lovato discovered that she is also 16 percent of Scandinavian descent and one percent of African descent.
====Lovato was raised==== in Dallas, Texas. In 2002, she began her acting career on the children's television series Barney & Friends as Angela. She began playing piano at age seven and guitar at ten, when she also began dancing and acting classes.

Lovato played the lead character, aspiring singer Mitchie Torres, in Camp Rock. The film premiered on June 20, 2008, to 8.9 million viewers. Its soundtrack was released three days earlier; however, the music was considered less current than that of High School Musical. Gillian Flynn of Entertainment Weekly wrote that Lovato's acting skills were underwhelming and she "has the knee-jerk smile of someone who is often told she has a great smile". Lovato sang four songs on the soundtrack, including "We Rock" and "This Is Me". That summer, she began her Demi Live! Warm Up Tour before the release of her debut album and appeared on the Jonas Brothers' Burnin' Up Tour.
====Lovato's debut album,==== Don't Forget, was released on September 23, 2008, and was met with generally positive reviews from critics.

The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 89,000 copies. Ten of its songs were co-written with the Jonas Brothers. Don't Forget was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for US sales of over 500,000 copies.

====Lovato's second album,==== Here We Go Again, was released on July 21, 2009; she described its acoustic style as similar to that of John Mayer.

Her other influences include Britney Spears, Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Jennifer Lopez, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Alexz Johnson, Billie Holiday, and Billy Gilman. About Gilman she said, "We had the same voice range when I was young. I would practice to his songs all the time." Lovato has said that John Mayer's songwriting has been a "huge influence" on her and that after the release of Unbroken, her musical style shifted towards hip hop and R&B. Lovato says, "I had a lot of respect for Whitney Houston, and Christina Aguilera, on some songs where she was really amazing and wasn't trying to be sexy or anything like that." About her admiration for Clarkson, Lovato says, "I just thought she was a great role model. She was never publicly seen drinking and driving or wearing really scandalous clothes or anything like that. I feel like she set a really great example and she was extremely talented." Lovato's The Neon Lights Tour was "inspired by Beyoncé."
====Voice====Lovato is a full lyric soprano. She has a vocal range of four octaves, 1 note and a semitone, including the whistle register. Nick Levine of Digital Spy, commenting on her vocals for her album, Don't Forget, stated, "she's certainly a stronger singer than the Jonases. In fact, her full-bodied vocal performances are consistently impressive." Becky Brain of Idolator wrote that Lovato has a "killer voice and the A-list material to put it to good use." According to Sophie Schillaci of The Hollywood Reporter, the entertainer "has a voice that can silence even the harshest of critics. Something not often found in her peers." For Lovato's second studio album, Here We Go Again, Jeff Miers from The Buffalo News wrote, "Unlike so many of her Disney-fied peers, Lovato can really sing...[and it's] refreshing [she doesn't need Auto-Tune] to mask any lack of natural ability."
====Upon working with Lovato==== on her third studio album, Unbroken, Ryan Tedder stated, "Demi blew me out of the water vocally! I had no idea how good her voice is. She's one of the best singers I've ever worked with. Literally, that good... I mean, she's a Kelly Clarkson-level vocalist. And Kelly has a set of pipes." He also commented on their work together on the song "Neon Lights" from Lovato's fourth studio album, saying, "She, in pop music, has one of the biggest ranges, possibly the highest full voice singer I've ever worked with." Tamsyn Wilce from Alter The Press commented on her vocals on Demi, stating "it shows just how strong her vocal cords are and the variation of styles that she can completely work to make her own." In a review for the 'Neon Lights Tour,' Mike Wass from Idolator commented "you don't need shiny distractions when you can belt out songs like Demi and connect with the crowd on such an emotional level." In a review for the 'Demi World Tour,' Marielle Wakim from Los Angeles Magazine commented on Lovato's vocals, stating "For those who haven’t bothered to follow Lovato's career, let's get something out of the way: the girl can sing. Get over your fear of being judged by your Facebook friends and Spotify her discography, because you’re going to have the last laugh five years down the road (probably sooner) when she wins a Grammy. At 22 years old, her vocal range is astounding." She went on to further describe her vocals as "spectacular.

She has written multiple songs about him. Patrick died of cancer on June 22, 2013, at age 53.

On November 1, 2010, Lovato withdrew from the Jonas Brothers Live in Concert tour, entering a treatment facility for "physical and emotional issues". It was reported that she decided to enter treatment after punching female dancer Alex Welch, her management and family convinced her she needed help. Lovato said she took "100 percent, full responsibility" for the incident. On January 28, 2011, Lovato completed inpatient treatment at Timberline Knolls and returned home. She acknowledged that she had had bulimia, had harmed herself, and had been "self-medicating" with drugs and alcohol "like a lot of teens do to numb their pain".

What an incredible day for California AND for equality." Lovato later said: "I believe in gay marriage, I believe in equality. I think there's a lot of hypocrisy with religion. But I just found that you can have your own relationship with God, and I still have a lot of faith." In an early November 2013 interview with Latina magazine, she said that she finds spirituality to be an important part of maintaining balance in life. She said: "I'm the closest I've ever been with God. I have my own relationship with God and that's all that matters".

Personal Quotes (15)
I chose to leave public school. I was kind of bullied . . . Everyone signed a petition that said, "We all hate Demi Lovato".
[on Joe Jonas] He is my best friend. He has always been my best friend.
The only thing I could see myself doing is music - songwriting or producing or something. I've never seen myself being in any other business, I've been working in this one since I was 5 years old! I could do other things, but I wouldn't want to.
[on her role in Camp Rock (2008)] It was a confidence booster. My character and I both like to rock out and now we're not afraid to!
[on Miley Cyrus] She's my best friend, so you better watch out. I will defend her for the rest of my life.
[a message to her fans after leaving a rehabilitation center] The journey that I have been on had been very, very difficult over the past few months. I was dealing with issues that I know not only girls just my age but of all ages are dealing with. People that are probably watching this video right now are dealing with the issues that I had to and I hope to one day raise awareness of everything. I can't tell you how much light you guys brought into my life in probably the darkest time of my life. Without you guys, I wouldn't be here today. I wanted to let you guys know that I'm excited to get back to work.
Yes, there have been times when I definitely have been tempted to get rid of my dinner. But I will deal with it for the rest of my life because it's a life-long disease. I don't think there's going to be a day when I don't think about food or my body, but I'm living with it, and I wish I could tell young girls to find their safe place and stay with it.
If you are going through that dark period, go to your family and closest friends. Don't put yourself in danger. It's very crucial that you get your feelings out - but don't ever inflict harm on your own body because your body is so sacred. I wish I could tell every young girl with an eating disorder, or who has harmed herself in any way, that she's worthy of life and that her life has meaning. You can overcome and get through anything.
(on her friend Selena Gomez) Selena and I hadn't spoken in a long time. We just had some issues that we had to deal with. But the day I went into treatment I get a phone call from her and she was the one sobbing on the phone. She was like, 'Are you OK? I've been crying non-stop. Are you sure you're OK?' And, all issues aside, I started crying too and I'm like, 'Yes, I'm OK.'
(on Miley Cyrus) She sent me a Christmas present and that meant a lot to me because I didn't get Christmas presents in there (rehab)... I just have incredible friends.
[on whether she'll focus more on music, movies or TV in the future] I think I'm gonna stick with the combination. I get bored pretty easily. I can't do one or the other. I wanna continue to work as hard as I can. You'll see me all over.
[on her third album, Unbroken] [It will] show my true colors. I think it's finally the album that I've always wanted to make but I've never had the time to.
[on The Beatles song "Yesterday"] This song brings up so many memories and emotions because the lyrics are truly heartfelt and written with such incredible feeling in each word. The Beatles are such an inspiration to me.
There were two people [who were there for me]. No matter how many times we fight, we will always be in each others' lives. Miley Cyrus and I are strong headed. When we fight it's brutal and we're like, "We're never going to be friends again!" Then two days later, were like, "I love you and I miss you!" Selena Gomez and I, we never fight. She's not a confrontational person at all. Both of them will never leave my life no matter what happens, because we've been through so much together.
I'm not gonna lie. I was self-medicating. I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain. [But now] I don't drink, I don't do drugs, I don't throw up after my meals, I don't starve myself. There's nothing that I do that I feel ashamed of.
