The Jonas Brothers – Joseph, Nicholas and Kevin – have won over the hearts of teen girls everywhere with their musical and acting talents.
Their success began when Nick was discovered while singing at a local barbershop in 1999. With the help of his two older brothers – who assisted in writing songs – Nick saw a limited release of his first record in 2004. In 2005, Columbia Records signed the three brothers as a group act; their 2007 album Jonas Brothers reached number five on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart in its first week.
Although the trio proudly preach their abstinence from sex, the group is not unused to hookups. Nick has been linked to Disney stars Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, while Joe briefly dated singer Taylor Swift (who publicly mocked him for breaking up with her over the phone) before romancing actress Camilla Belle.
Kevin announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Danielle Deleasa in July 2009.
The band’s concert movie, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience premiered in early 2009, and a Disney series will hit the airwaves this summer.
Nick, Joe and Kevin will also be releasing their own line of tween clothing at Wal-Mart, Kmart, Sears, and J.C. Penny in fall 2009.
