At age 12, Levesque signed her first recording contract with 'Da Family/Blackground/Universal Records. Her debut album, JoJo, went multi-platinum in the U.S. and many other countries. Levesque became a worldwide phenomenon, the youngest solo artist to have a number-one hit on the Billboard Pop Charts, and the youngest artist ever to be nominated for an MTV Video Music Award.
In 2004, Levesque performed for President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush at Christmas in Washington. Levesque performed at America's Youth Rocks the Nation, at the Washington, D.C.
