Jacob Latimore Bio

A Star is Born

Jacob Latimore grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When he was only five years old he watched the movie The Temptations – an ode to the popular Motown group – and fell in love with music. He spent weeks watching the movie over and over, trying to memorize the songs and learn all the dance moves. Jacob’s father and uncles were also musically talented and encouraged his interest.


Chart Topper

When he was nine years old he decided to take music more seriously and produced his first song, “Best Friend.” DJs across Wilwaukee instantly took to the song, and “Best Friend” received constant airtime. At the same time, Jacob was performing at events and festivals across the state, trying to make a name for himself.

By a stroke of luck someone at Disney heard Jacob’s song and decided to add it to Radio Disney’s Incubator program, which features upcoming young musicians. This led to exposure with other talented artists and an appearance on the Maury Povich Show. Jacob released a new single, “Superstar,” which shot him to fame and landed a spot on the Billboard R&B and Hip Hop charts.


Triple Threat

In early 2010, Jacob signed a record deal with Jive Records. He also scored a lead role in the film Vanishing on 7th Street and a part in the upcoming movie “The Untitled Pele Movie” about the Brazilian soccer player. Jacob partnered with fellow Jive artists Issa and Justin Martin for the song “Camera Phone,” and in October 2010 the three artists filmed the music video. With so many projects in the works, Jacob Latimore is sure to be a household name very soon.


Jacob Says

“I give all credit to God, he gave me this gift, and I am so excited to see what other doors he is going to open for me!”

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
