2013 was a huge year for Disney pop wunderkind Zendaya — in the span of just a few months the budding singer became the youngest contestant ever to compete on Dancing With the Stars, published a book, and released her self-titled debut album to a spot on the Billboard 200. Zendaya got her start as a dancer, and it shows — her expertly-choreographed live shows feature an army of razor-sharp backup dancers and adrenalin-filled footwork sequences. On tour in 2013, the young star impressed fans with her ability to sing through even the most intricate dance routines, building excitement for her live appearances in 2014.
Born in Oakland, CA, Zendaya performed in local theater productions from an early age. In addition to dancing in dance group Future Shock Oakland for three years, she worked as a model for Old Navy and Macy's before landing on Disney's Shake It Up TV series in 2010. Drawing comparisons to fellow Disney pop upstart Selena Gomez, Zendaya released her debut single "Swag it Out" in 2011, displaying an impressive vocal prowess that received a wider platform on her self-titled 2013 debut LP. With the album's lead single "Replay" climbing pop charts around the world, fans can expect big things from Zendaya as she continues her rise towards full-blown pop princess.
