She was born in a city in Iowa called Davenport! Okay, so she has humble beginnings. Her father, Juan Manual Cavazos, moved them to California to become an actor. In pursuit of his own acting career, he chose a basic American last name to make it easier to pronounce. The agencies expected something easier to say, so he chose Michaels and that’s where she got her name.
Also, her songwriting skills are not reserved for only music, but for TV and film. She helped write the theme song for Austin & Ally. Clearly she’s always had a great talent for Disney to allow a fourteen-year-old to write an entire theme song for them. Incredibly dope to have that on your resume. She was clearly designed for greatness.
Her own solo song came out in 2017. Issues hit number 11 on Billboard Hot 100 chart! For your first solo song people only dream of this achievement.
