Viral Video Star Sophia Grace Signs With Abrams
Viral video star Sophia Grace Brownlee has signed with Abrams Artists Agency. She previously was with UTA. The British personality, now 13, first gained fame in 2011 with her YouTube cover of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass,” singing along with her younger cousin Rosie. The video, which has generated more than 52 million views, earned the tykes a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where Brownlee subsequently became a celebrity interviewer and a red- carpet correspondent.
Brownlee has gone on to record the original songs “Girls Just Gotta Have Fun,” “Best Friends” and her latest single, “Girl in the Mirror.” She recently signed a record deal with Universal Music and shot the music video for her next single, “Hollywood,” which will be released this month.
“With our 360-degree approach through cross-department synergy, we look forward to supporting Sophia Grace as she continues to build her brand and grow as an artist,” Abrams founder and CEO Harry Abrams said in a statement. “It is a pleasure to have her join our roster of talented and driven clients.”
Sophia Grace’s other activities have included penning The New York Times best-selling children’s book Tea Time With Sophia Grace and Rosie and starring in the straight-to-DVD feature Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure.
“I’m thrilled to join the Abrams family and be part of such a hardworking, dedicated and hands-on agency,” she said in a statement. “I’m very excited to see what the future holds.”
She continues to be managed by Darrell Thompson.
