This just in: The mega talented singer/actor/dancer Jordan Fisher has officially been named Radio Disney’s “Next Big Thing”—and we’re all about it because he’s great. The 22-year-old will be featured in Radio Disney’s multi-platform program, which is designed to highlight up-and-coming recording artists and their musical journey. With the new title, we’ll definitely be seeing a lot of Jordan on Radio Disney over the course of the next few months. Previous “NBT” featured artists include: Fifth Harmony, Sofia Carson, Kelsea Ballerini, Shawn Mendes, and Becky G.
For a touch on his background: The Birmingham, Alabama-born actor has starred in Teen Beach Movie, Teen Beach 2, and recently played Doody in Grease: Live. He’s also guest-starred on ABC Family’s (now Freeform) The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and Disney Channel’s Liv and Maddie. Back in May, Fisher also presented the award for “The Freshest – Best New Artist” at the 2016 Radio Disney Music Awards. So he’s definitely a great fit for the special Radio Disney title.
The program is set to follow the artist on his journey to release new music for his self-titled debut EP, which is due out on August 19. We’re already obsessed with his first single, “All About Us,” so it will be fun to see what’s next.
