Meet fourteen year old Coco Jones who can next be seen starring in the Disney Channel gospel original movie Let It Shine (June 2012) opposite Tyler James Williams and Trevor Jackson. Find out all about her below…
Coco plays teenage singing sensation “Roxxie”, 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 his best friend, “Kris McDuffy” (Jackson) takes all the credit. Based on Shakespeare’s play Cyrano de Bergerac, it tells the story of young love and gives a message of confidence and believing in yourself.

In addition to Let It Shine, she can also be seen recurring on Disney Channel’s “So Random” as herself and recently landed a guest starring role on Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie.” Finally, Coco literally just became the newest recording artist on The Hollywood Records label signing an exclusive recording and publishing deal in April 2012!
Coco is also working on new music and what’s sure to be a great duet with “Zeke and Luther” star Adam Hick called “Whodunit?” Fans best know Coco as one of the five finalists in 2011 on Disney’s Next Big Thing (N.B.T.) contest! Coco will tour summer 2012 with NBT.
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 is looking toward taking online classes so she can continue to pursue her dream of performing. Coco resides in Tennessee with her parents and her two dogs.
