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.[1] She was a featured artist for Trinity Broadcasting Network's iShine KNECT, providing the show's original theme song.[2] 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.

Personal background[edit]

Jasmine was born into a family of mixed ethnic backgrounds, including people of Hispanic and Italian descent. Jasmine was born in Los Angeles, California, but she and her family moved to Nashville, Tennessee, when she was eight years old.[3] 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.[4]
