True Disney fans, who admire true art and talent were and still are SUPER EXCITED when it was announced that actor-singer Halle Bailey has been cast as Ariel in a live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.
Who is Halle Bailey? She's 1/2 of the dynamic duo group CHLOE x HALLE. Born in Atlanta, GA and raised in Los Angeles, California. The beautiful duo first performed as Chloe x Halle by posting covers of pop songs on YouTube. They launched their YouTube channel at the ages of 13 and 11, respectively, with a cover of Beyoncé’s “Best Thing I Never Had”. Their rendition of “Pretty Hurts” by Beyoncé went viral and drew the attention of the singer herself and in 2015, she signed the sister duo to her management company, Parkwood Entertainment.
