Coco Jones is a 15 year old actress and singer. The teen talent first owned her voice at six years old as she performed a powerful rendition of “America the Beautiful” at her kindergarten graduation. Though she happens to be the daughter of former NFL player Mike Jones, Coco is creating her own lane. In 2010, Jones released her debut CD, Coco Jones. The album gave her a platform to begin a concert series, “UBU: Stop The Bullying”, that encouraged moralistic values and positive self-esteem through song. Later in 2010, the budding entertainer competed on Radio Disney’s popular competition, Next Big Thing. Her appearance on Next Big Thing stirred a major buzz around her song “Real You”, and it also helped to launch her music career. The multi-threat star also played “Roxie” in the movie Let it Shine, based on the French play, Cyrano de Bergerac. These days, Jones spends much if her time in the lab co-writing and recording fresh tunes with renowned producer Rob Galbraith. She currently has a catchy groove titled “Holla at the DJ” on iTunes, and the jam also has a fun and super stylish video that can be seen on her website, therealcocojones.com.
Coco’s efforts as an artist have sent out so many positive and refreshing messages to the youth in our community and worldwide. With songs like “Real You” and “UBU”, Jones delivers much-needed messages of self-worth in the form of catchy music that our youth will gravitate to. Her stance on anti-bullying is strong and inspires youth to be considerate of their peers and to stand for something worthy.
