Ariana was not even four years old when her parents took the girl to the musical theater «Little Palm Theater», and already 4 years later she made her debut on television, singing the USA national anthem.

At the age of 13, the girl seriously thought about the music career and began to practice vocal at the famous Hollywood vocal coach Eric Vetro, who taught the voice of many American stars ‒ Pink, Katy Perry and Jason Derulo. After the master classes, Erik gave positive testimonial to Ariana, and her elder brother took up her career.

Career start

In 2007, the girl flew to Los Angeles to meet with managers, stating that she wanted to record an R&B album. She was refused, and then Ariana returned to acting classes and in 2008 she successfully passed the casting for the part of Charlotte in Broadway musical called «13» by Jason Robert Brown. Critics highly appreciated Grande’s acting debut and awarded her the prize of the National Youth Theater Association. Participation in the performance did not allow Ariana to continue her education at North Brovard Preparatory school, so the young actress received educational materials at home and worked with tutors.

Ariana’s successful debut attracted the attention of directors and casting producers. In 2010, on the channel Nickelodeon the girl received a part in the television series «Victorious» directed by Dan Schneider. For the role of Cat Valentine Ariana had to radically change the appearance, and from the pretty brown-haired girl the actress turned into a fiery pretty girl with a purple hair color. Then Ariana feared that because of such changes in appearance, fans will turn away from her, but the fans accepted the new image of the actress with a bang.
