Jasmine Alexandria Sagginario, better known simply as Jasmine (born September 1, 1994), is an American pop singer and songwriter. Jasmine is best known for winning Radio Disney's 2009 N.B.T. (Next Big Thing) competition. She was a featured artist for TBN's iShine KNECT, providing the show's original theme song. To date, Jasmine has released one album under iShine Records and several standalone singles, including singles that have been featured on major compilation albums and soundtracks.
Jasmine was born into a family of mixed ethnic backgrounds, including people of Hispanic and Italian. Jasmine was born in Los Angeles, California, but she and her family moved to Nashville, Tennessee, when she was eight years old. Before she became a singer, Jasmine took up cheerleading, but due to a constant strain on her vocal cords from yelling and shouting, Jasmine decided to give up cheerleading to pursue a career in music. Jasmine became interested in music when she was twelve years old.
Jasmine is starting to pursue her acting career and has been busy auditioning for roles in Los Angeles. She has recently caught the attention of the acting agent Mitchell Gossett (the agent of Miley Cyrus), who is now representing Jasmine as her agent. "Jasmine has the natural ability to deliver a concept, and pull you into what she is saying. I look forward to being a part of her future success in this industry." says Gossett.
Jasmine was a featured artist on IShine KNECT, a Christian tween show on Trinity Broadcasting Network. In fact, her debut album was released on iShine Records. Season 2 of IShine KNECT does not feature Jasmine.
In 2009, at the age of 15, Jasmine entered, placed, and won Radio Disney's N.B.T. (Next Big Thing) music contest.
After The Next Me, Jasmine debuted her second single, "Boy Crazy". It was featured on the Radio Disney Jams, Vol. 12 CD. Then, in November, she released "Knock Knock". A music video and official remix were also made for the song.
On January 5, 2012, Jasmine released her third single, "GYOB (Get Your Own Boyfriend)", under the label Jsound. Jasmine Sagginario has started a band with her little sister, Talia, called Jazz and Tally. Her sister Tally was featured on season 2 of lifetime's The Rap Game, and an official cast member season 3.
