Next Best Thing (N.B.T.) competitor Coco Jones is certainly becoming just that, the next best thing. She has taken on a starring role in the Disney original movie, “Let It Shine” and has become apart of the Disney sketch comedy “So Random!” cast.
Coco recently sat down with Teen Ink to talk about her career, past and present. Check out some of the highlights below:
RH- How did you first become interested in the entertainment arts?
CJ- I would watch The Cheetah Girls, That’s So Raven and Hannah Montana on TV and I would beg my mom to let me act. I also always loved to sing.
RH- You have been a part of several competitive contests with your singing; what has being a part of such taught you?
CJ- It taught me to always give my best every time I go on stage or in front of a camera. You cannot give just 80%, it has to be 110%. It has also taught me that as long as I give it my all, win or lose, that is what counts. Sometimes in competitions you are just not what the judges have in mind, so you have to continue to believe in yourself regardless, or the disappointment can really hurt.
RH- What can fans expect on upcoming sketches?
CJ- Look for the genie sketch, Janet and the Janettes will be back, and much more!
RH- Are you currently working on an album?
CJ- Yes, I am! I am coming out with some great, new music. Something to really make everyone get up and dance. I am also looking forward to doing some powerful ballads. Once the albums are finished I plan on putting on some concerts with a lot of energy and fun.
Coco is on her way to becoming an entertainment superstar.
