Who Is Halle Bailey?
We are super excited to announce that one of our favorite new artists #HalleBailey has officially been casted to play Ariel within Disney’s live action remake of The Little Mermaid! Not only did the news single handily break the internet on multiple social media handles, it also started a much needed conversation pertaining to casting women of color within animated series, television shows and movies. Though there’s a clear line of division based off of opinionated differences; we’re not about to sit here and let y’all play sis like she hasn’t been putting in work for years.
Born on March 27th 2000 in #Atlanta , Georgia; Halle serves as the third child to Courtney and Doug Bailey. She was raised alongside her siblings in LA.
Halle is apart of an R&B group she started alongside her older sister Chloe Bailey named ChloexHalle. They are often mistaken for twins but are actually two years apart within age. They state they feel as if they’re twins.
They started out uploading different videos of themselves covering a multitude of songs by different artists on YouTube. They’ve successfully gained over a million subscribers and earned Youtube celebrity status.
It wasn’t until they covered #Beyonce ‘s iconic track Pretty Hurts that their careers took off. Their original sound landed them a signed deal to Beyoncé’s record label Parkwood Entertainment which they’ve been calling home since 2015.
ChloexHalle have written and composed a wide variant of music and debuted their first album in 2018 entitled The Kids are alright. Which earned them not one but two Grammy nominations
Chloe is no stranger to the acting world, she’s a reoccurring cast member of the increasing popular series Grown-ish on Freeeform.
Despite having to juggle an incredibly busy life and career, Halle successfully graduated from High School last year at the age of 18.
Halle is an amazingly talented artist and actress. She has accomplished in her young life of only nineteen years old, much of what many only aspire to do. Her voice attains an original sound that can’t be bought, stolen or sold. We are eager to see the history she will create and the many accomplishments she will earn and endure!
