The Jonas Brothers have experienced a meteoric rise into a pop culture phenomenon following their eponymous Hollywood Records debut. A multi-platinum selling act, Jonas Brothers also have two sold out headline tours, become Disney Channel TV stars, penned their first book, and are truly living their dream to their fullest.
The release of their latest blockbuster CD "A Little Bit Longer" was highlighted with a record attendance of over 20,000 people at Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series in Bryant Park, 3 sold out shows in New York's famed Madison Square Garden, and a near shut down of Times Square of fans flocking to the Virgin Mega Store to purchase the CD. "A Little Bit Longer" is one of the highest debuts of the year. Jonas Brothers created more history by having 3 albums in the top ten, with #1 "A Little Bit Longer", # 8 "Camp Rock" sound track and # 10 "Jonas Brothers."
Their 3-D concert movie is set to debut in theaters February 27, 2009 followed by their own television series "JONAS" to debut on Disney Channel in Spring of 2009. Jonas Brothers also make time to give back. Their Change for the Children Foundation supports programs that motivate and inspire children to face adversity with confidence, determination and a will to succeed. They have also lent their talent to other artists, having co-written and co-produced several songs for Demi Lovato's # 2 debut album.
