Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande-Butera was born in Boca Raton, Florida, on June 26, 1993. Joan Grande, the CEO of Hose-McCann Communications, a maker of communications and safety equipment, and Edward Butera, the owner of a graphic design firm in Boca Raton, are her parents. Grande is of Italian ancestry, describing herself as an Italian American with Sicilian and Abruzzese ancestors. Frankie Grande, her elder half-brother and an entertainer and producer, is her older half-brother, and she has a good relationship with her maternal grandmother, Marjorie Grande. Her parents divorced when she was eight or nine years old, and her family moved from New York to Florida before she was born.

In 1998, while her parents were season ticket holders for the Florida Panthers, she was inadvertently hit on both wrists by wayward hockey pucks on two separate occasions, getting minor bruises both times

Her Debut

Grande began seriously pursuing a music career at the age of 13, though she continued to focus on theatre. She indicated an interest in recording an R&B album when she initially arrived in Los Angeles, California to meet with her managers: “They said, ‘Um, that’s a helluva aim!’ when I said, ‘I want to produce an R&B album.’ Who’s going to buy an R&B album by a 14-year-old?’” Grande made her Broadway debut in the musical 13 in 2008, playing Charlotte, a cheerleader. Grande dropped out of North Broward Preparatory School when she joined the musical, but she remained enrolled since the school provided her materials for her to study with tutors. She also performed at Birdland, a jazz club in New York City.

In 2009, Grande starred alongside 13 co-stars Elizabeth Gillies in the Nickelodeon television sitcom Victorious. She portrayed the “adorably dimwitted” Cat Valentine in the sitcom set at a performing arts high school.
