Where is Ariana Grande from? Ariana Grande is from Boca Raton, Florida, where the singer and actress grew up and attended North Broward Preparatory School. Born June 26, 1993, Grande made her acting debut in 2008, when she played Charlotte in the Broadway show “13.” Two years later, she joined the cast of the Nickelodeon comedy “Victorious,” on which she portrayed Cat, a role she would reprise on the spinoff “Sam & Cat.” In 2013, she released her debut album, “Yours Truly,” and in March 2014, she made headlines for what Idolator called “the most unlikely duet” of the year: “Don’t Be Gone Too Long,” a collabo with R&B bad boy Chris Brown.
While curious tween fans have been asking, “Where is Ariana Grande from?” since 2010, when she became a Nickelodeon superstar, the Chris Brown collaboration promises to earn her notice among an older subset of pop-culture observers. Not that Brown is the first “grown-up artist” she’s worked with. Grande has collaborated with the rappers Mac Miller and Big Sean, and she’s said in interviews that she grew up in Boca Raton listening to urban music.
Where is Ariana Grande from? Her literal birthplace almost doesn’t matter, as the 20-year-old is a child of the Internet, and it’s thanks largely to Twitter that she’s become such a breakout celebrity. Grande has 13.8 million Twitter followers, and when she drops her sophomore LP — an album she said in January 2014 she’d begun working on — she’s sure to sell truckloads of copies (or downloads, or streams — whatever the kids are doing these days).
Older music fans may begin asking, “Where is Ariana Grande from?” come March 6, when the youngster joins Aretha Franklin, Melissa Etheridge, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, and Tessanne Chin at First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Women of Soul” concert, an event “designed to celebrate what the White House describes as great “foremothers” of American music, with songs exploring the struggles and achievements of women,” according to Billboard.
