Born in New York City, Jesse McCartney has been building a career encompassing singing, songwriting, and acting since the age of 7. By the time he was 11 years old, he was a regular on ABC’s “All My Children” and was nominated for 2 Emmys. Shortly after he joined the group Dream Street whose debut album sold over 800,000 units.
At age 16, Jesse released his first solo album, Beautiful Soul, selling over 1.8 million copies. In 2008, he co-wrote smash hit "Bleeding Love" with Ryan Tedder of One Republic for singer Leona Lewis which was a #1 hit in 34 countries – the only song in over a decade to achieve this. The song was nominated for a GRAMMY AWARD and in 2009 won ASCAP's song of the year. His single “Leavin’” from his third album, Departure, was #1 for five weeks and was Top 40 Radio's most played song of that year. Follow-up single “How Do You Sleep” reached top 10 status. Other top 40 hits of McCartney’s career include “She’s No You,” “Because You Live,” “Right Where You Want Me,” “Just So You Know,” “It’s Over,” “Body Language” and “Shake.”
After a hiatus from music when McCartney focused primarily on acting, 2013 brought Jesse back to music with single "Back Together."
Acting credits include the teen cult classic, Keith, Beware The Gonzo, and Chernobyl Diaries. McCartney has also voiced characters for animated films, video games, and television series, including all Alvin and the Chipmunks films, Horton Hears a Who, Kingdom Hearts, and Young Justice. On television, McCartney starred in the series Summerland, the highest rated show on WB Network during its 2 year run, and in 2013, joined the cast of Lifetime’s Army Wives for the finale season.
