Get ready because JD McCrary is about to take over the music world. The triple threat (he can sing, dance, and act!) dropped his debut EP, “Shine,” earlier this year and was the voice of Young Simba in the new “The Lion King” movie. He’s also been a part of tracks with Childish Gambino and Jon Bellion, and he stars on “The Paynes” on The Oprah Network.
Did we mention JD is only 12-years-old? He was the youngest artist ever signed to Disney’s Hollywood Records. We can’t wait to see what he does next!
JD was tapped to co-host Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day (make that a quadruple threat?) in NYC alongside Radio Disney’s Morgan Tompkins and Meg Donnelly.
We spoke with JD before AAKD about what’s coming next, who else he’d love to collaborate with, and the time he met Beyonce. Watch our interview below!
