Radio Disney and Disney Channel audiences have voted, and teen pop singing sisters and actresses Chloe and Halle Bailey from Atlanta, Georgia have been named the season five winners of Radio Disney’s “N.B.T.” (Next BIG Thing). The announcement was made by Radio Disney on-air personality Jake Whetter during Saturday evening’s “N.B.T.” finale in Los Angeles, an event which included performances and special guest appearances by Hollywood Records recording artist and 2010 “N.B.T.” finalist Coco Jones, 2011 “N.B.T.” winner Shealeigh, and stars of the hit Disney Channel series “Austin & Ally” — Laura Marano and Ross Lynch – along with his band R5. Highlights from the event will air during the Disney Channel premiere of “Disney’s A Christmas Carol,” FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT). As winners of Radio Disney’s “N.B.T.,” Chloe and Halle will record a new single to be released by Disney Music Group, and performed on an upcoming episode of “Austin & Ally.”
Kelly Edwards, Executive Director of Music and Programming, Radio Disney said, “Chloe and Halle deliver vocal and instrumental harmonies that are captivating. Their musical talents coupled with their bright and relatable personalities won the hearts of our audience and we’re thrilled to have them as this season’s winner.”
Chloe and Halle, ages 14 and 12 respectively, are also songwriters and play their own instruments, with Chloe on piano and Halle on guitar. The YouTube sensations have been highlighted by RollingStone.com and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” They appeared in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Let It Shine,” “Joyful Noise,” “The Fighting Temptations,” and Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns.” Their featured songs on “N.B.T.” were “T.M.I.” and “Take It All.”
Children are holding bake sales and penny drives. Teens are loading heavy supplies on an assembly line. Families are adopting families through virtual volunteering. People of all ages are working hard to help those hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. Families across the country can join efforts to help those most in need on Family Volunteer Day, taking place Nov. 17. For more than two decades, Family Volunteer Day has been held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season with giving and service.
The day of service is sponsored by Disney Friends for Change, a global initiative that inspires kids and families to take action to help people, communities and the planet, and powered by generationOn, Points of Light’s youth service program. “Family volunteering is a hands-on way for children to learn the values of kindness, compassion, tolerance, community responsibility and good citizenship,” said Concetta Bencivenga, executive director of generationOn. “It’s also a meaningful way for families to spend time together, have fun and help shape a lifelong value of service.” Hundreds of projects will take place across the country on Family Volunteer Day, including:
In Washington, D.C., families will spend the day at the Armed Forces Retirement home visiting with residents and helping them prepare for the holidays with a host of hands-on projects including raking leaves, cleaning up the grounds and hosting a “Wheelchair Wash.”
If so, you’re in for a treat. On June 22-24, Radio Disney will host special musical showcases that feature the station’s season five “N.B.T.” artists. The concerts are one step in Radio Disney’s 10-week “N.B.T.” musical competition, for which the grand prize is a performance on the Disney Channel’s “Austin & Ally.”
The showcase, hosted by “N.B.T.” host Jake Whetter, will feature all of the season five artists as well as season four “N.B.T.” winner Shealeigh and runner-up Zack Montana.
Concerts begin at 8 p.m. and are included in the cost of park admission. Entertainment is always subject to change.
