Halle Bailey Biography – Halle Bailey Wiki
Halle Bailey (born Halle Lynn Bailey) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer born in Atlanta, Georgia. She is best known for being one half of the duo Chloe x Halle with her older sister Chloe Bailey, signed to Beyoncé’s record label Parkwood Entertainment. She was raised in Mableton, Georgia with her sister Chloe Bailey and later moved to Los Angeles in mid-2012. While in Georgia, she played minor acting roles in films, and the Disney television film Let It Shine (2012). Their father started teaching them how to write songs at the ages of ten and eight. They launched a YouTube channel at the ages of 13 and 11 respectively, with a cover of Beyoncé’s “Best Thing I Never Had”. They first performed as Chloe x Halle when uploading covers of pop songs onto this channel. The duo made their talk show debut when they appeared on The Ellen Show in April 2012. In September 2013, she made a cameo appearance in the Disney series Austin & Ally performing the song “Unstoppable”.
In 2018, she was added to the cast of the TV series Grown-ish after releasing the theme song for the series titled “Grown”. The song “The Kids Are Alright” was also featured in the series debut. In July 2019, Disney announced that she had been cast as Princess Ariel in the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, set to be directed by Rob Marshall. She will also record and perform the soundtrack for the film. Her casting as Ariel caused a small amount of controversy, with some claiming that casting an African American in the role of Ariel was unfaithful to the original character. Facebook and Instagram pages dedicated to ‘defending Ariel’ began to spring up around this time, and would frequently share racist arguments against Halle’s casting and stereotypical images of black women as mermaids. Disney responded to the public with an open letter defending their casting. Bailey’s musical influences came from jazz and has been listening to Billie Holiday from a young age. She has cited the singer as one of the major influences on her vocals.
