Ariana Grande is a sitcom-star-turned-popular music sensation, referred to for such hit songs as "Problem," "Bang," "Dangerous Woman" and "Thank U, Next."

Ariana Grande started performing onstage when she was a child. Her involvement in a Broadway play at age 15, trailed by some small TV parts, helped her land the job of Cat on TV's Victorious. She followed that with the spinoff Sam and Cat and then dove headfirst into a graph topping musical profession, releasing five albums: Yours Truly (2013), My Everything (2014), Dangerous Woman (2016), Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019).

Grande was brought into the world on June 26, 1993, in Boca Raton, Florida, to Edward Butera, a graphic designer, and Joan Grande, a businesswoman. She took to singing and acting early on and advanced onto the neighborhood theater scene before she was a teen. Her first big break came in 2008 when the 15-year-old landed the job of Charlotte in the Broadway production of 13, a play focusing on life growing up in New York City. The early job prompted accolades, and Grande won a National Youth Theater Association Award.

Grande landed her breakout job in the Nickelodeon series Victorious. Victorious was set at a performing arts high school, and Grande was cast as a ridiculous aspiring singer-actress named Cat Valentine. While busy with the show, Grande nevertheless pursued a musical profession, making her first appearance on a record with the Victorious soundtrack. And in 2011, Grande released the single "Put Your Hearts Up," a pop song aimed at the hearts of her young Victorious audience. The show's given fan base casted a ballot Victorious Favorite TV Show at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

When Victorious went off the air in 2012, Grande's personality Cat Valentine survived. She went to star in the Nick spin-off Sam and Cat, co-starring iCarly's Jennette McCurdy. Sam and Cat wasn't on long when rumors started to swirl that Grande wasn't particularly enjoying the experience, and the show came to an abrupt end after 35 episodes (2013-14).

"The Way" was the first single from Grande's debut album, Yours Truly, a record that also featured the hits "Baby I" and "Right There." The album, produced by super-producer Babyface, showed a maturing Grande, and 1990s soul influences from pop diva Mariah Carey. The 2014 release My Everything sold 169,000 copies in its first week, debuting at No. 1. The single "Problem," featuring Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, went before the album release and debuted at No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 100, selling in excess of 400,000 copies upon its release. "Break Free" with Zedd and "Love Me Harder" with The Weeknd followed, each climbing toward the highest rated spot.

During the summer of 2014, Grande teamed up with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on the single "Bang," a track that debuted at No. 6 and topped at No. 3 in the United States. The album spawned another hit single "One Last Time," which arrived at number 13 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Grande had three hit singles from My Everything on the Billboard graph at the same time.

In 2017 Grande performed the title track for the soundtrack of the live action movie Beauty and the Beast. In February of that year, she started her Dangerous Woman tour across North America and then Europe. On May 22, 2017, misfortune struck after Grande finished a concert in Manchester, England and a suicide plane detonated a bomb at the exit of the concert lobby, killing 22 individuals and wounding 116, including numerous young adults and children. "All acts of terrorism are weak... but this assault stands out for its appalling sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young individuals who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives," British Prime Minister Theresa May said after the assault.
