Last updated: 08/01/2014 08:20:54 PM
(Courtney) Coco Jones (born January 4, 1998), is an American actress, pop singer, rapper, and dancer. She was born in Columbia, South Carolina, but raised in Tennessee. She was featured on Radio Disney's "Next Big Thing", or "N.B.T."
A fresh-faced, bright-eyed, southern beauty, 14-year-old Coco Jones will soon grace television sets across the world as she stars in the Disney Channel original movie Let It Shine (June 2012) opposite Tyler James Williams and Trevor Jackson. Coco plays the role of “Roxie,” a teenage singing sensation, whose music label is sponsoring a songwriting contest at a teen club. “Cyrus DeBarge” (Williams) writes a contest-winning song about his love for Roxie, but when he’s too shy to claim it as his own, his best friend, “Kris McDuffy” (Jackson) takes the credit. Based on Shakespeare’s play Cyrano de Bergerac, Let It Shine tells the story of young love, boasting a message of self-confidence. In addition to Let It Shine, Coco can also be seen recurring on Disney Channel’s “So Random.” Recently, Coco has been in the recording studio with Grammy-nominated producer Rob Galbraith, co-writing and recording all-new original music. One of the most anticipated tracks is a duet called “Whodunit?” with “Zeke and Luther” star Adam Hicks.
When she’s not singing, acting, rapping or keeping up her honor roll status at school, Coco loves to sew, work out, swim, bike ride, surf the web and shop with her friends. She plans on going to college, but will likely take online classes so that she can continue to pursue her dream of performing.
Coco currently resides in Tennessee with her parents, sister, brothers, and their two dogs.
