Nick Jonas’ career began on the Broadway stage when he was seven years old, but he has since grown out of the dazzling show tunes and into the amazing musician slash actor we all know and love. He admits to still belting out songs from Les Miserables in the shower from time to time and he hasn’t ruled out a return to the small stage, but these days the Texas-born superstar spends his time stealing the hearts of his fans all around the world. He sings, he acts, he models, and we are pretty sure that he is some kind of superhuman too.
Following his stint on Broadway and a first attempt at a solo career, Nick teamed up with his two older brothers to form a Grammy-nominated band called the Jonas Brothers. You’ve heard of them, right? Before disbanding in 2013, they took a brief hiatus to pursue some side projects and it was during this time when Nick proved himself as a credible solo artist.
He formed a second band called, “The Administration,” which included some members of Prince’s backing band, and they released the single, “Who I Am,” in early 2010. An album shorty followed before the group separated. Nick gained a whole new group of fans through this experience, who seemed to follow him when he decided to go solo again after the Jonas Brothers eventually broke up for good. Since then, he has released two studio albums from which he pulled singles, “Chains,” “Jealous,” “Levels,” and the Tove-Lo featured track, “Close.”
Nick is also a very good actor, starring in everything from television shows such as, “Kindgom,” and, “Scream Queens,” to movies such as, “Careful What You Wish For,” and, “Goat.” He is also going to be in the new, “Jumanji,” reboot which is set to be released in 2017.
Over the years, Nick has accumulated a huge army of dedicated fans. We spoke to some of them to find out exactly why they love this brown-eyed, previously curly-haired cutie.
Simran. 16. Toronto.
“I first met Nick Jonas when I was eleven years old and he was doing a show on Broadway. He was the sweetest person ever! Since then, I have been able to meet him every year and he always takes pictures with me every time. I love his love for his fans, not many artists love their fans like he does. He always tries to meet everyone and is always very sweet to them. He also works really hard with his music and acting, but he always makes time for his fans. I love the work he does with his Type 1 Diabetes too, and how he helps others with the same disease.”
Andrezza. 23. Brazil.
“I have been a Nick Jonas fan since I was fourteen years old. I think he is strong, honest, funny, and very talented… The connection he has with his fans and his kindness towards others are things that make me feel stronger than ever, and I am proud to say that I am a fan of his. I love his songs, the way he conducts himself in his personal and professional lives, and I just really love Nick Jonas.”
Ximena. 23. Mexico.
“I love Nick because he is such an angel. He loves what he does in every single way. He loves his fans so much and he always makes us feel special. He has an amazing voice and he makes really incredible music. He is truly talented and I am so proud of him. He deserves everything that he has achieved so far.”
Aliu. 18. Chile.
“I have liked Nick for ten years now. I love his talent and his passion when he sings on stage and opens his heart up. He is a very handsome man, but I love him for what is inside. I have always admired him and I always will do as it is all thanks to him that my life makes sense. He encourages something so impressive in me, and it is very difficult to put it all into words.”
Jordyn. 13. Pennsylvania.
“I love Nick Jonas because he is a huge inspiration. He is very talented in many ways, in music and with acting. He has made a huge impact on my life and I couldn’t be happier about that. I have even been to two of his concerts!”
Kelsey. 21. Burnaby.
“I love Nick because no matter what you are going through, listening to his songs can always put you in a better mood. His music makes you feel like you’re not alone. He is so down to earth and incredible with all that he does to help others. I have been a fan since the very beginning of his career and I always will be because he is just so talented and amazing. When I was diagnosed with Diabetes, I didn’t know anyone else who was going through the same thing except for Nick. It made me feel like I was no longer alone with it. Nick wrote some songs about his disease which help me a lot when I am feeling down. The work he has done with Beyond Type 1 is so inspiring. He is such a lovable guy who inspires a lot of people. He always makes me smile no matter what I am facing.”
Sara. 26. Italy.
“I admire Nick because he is so hard working and he is always challenging himself to do more in his music and his acting. He has shown what a real talent he is and I am really proud to be his fan.”
Shannon. 22. Idaho.
“Nick is one of my biggest inspirations. He actually inspired me to play the piano and write songs.”
Daniela. 21. Argentina.
“I love Nick Jonas because he is a very talented person, because he involves his fans in all of the projects he does like with his group of Ambassadors, and because he always shows thanks for the love and support his fans give to him. I love him because his music touches my heart and soul.”
Isabell. 13. Virginia.
“Nick Jonas plays a key role in my happiness and if he didn’t exist then I wouldn’t be here today. His song, “A Little Bit Longer,” gives me hope while songs like, “Under You,” just make me happy… His passion for music always shines through and I aspire to love my job as much as he loves his. He is very handsome, but there is a much deeper and more meaningful side to his persona too. He seems like someone who you could sit down and have a really deep conversation with, and I really like that. He loves his fans with every bone in his body and that shows when he comes up with ideas such as the Ambassadors group.”
Chiara. 23. Italy.
“I love Nick for so many reasons. He has always been an inspiration and a role model to me. I love all of his strength as both a human being and a musician, and in my opinion he is one of the best singers and songwriters of all time. His music is able to describe how I feel better than anything else and when I listen to it, I feel like I just lose myself in it.”
Kristian. 19. New York.
“There are many reasons why I love Nick Jonas. I love him because he is not just another pop artist as his music ranges in different genres depending on the song. He is not afraid to be raw and really honest in his lyrics, and without using visuals he is able to write a story to life. Every lyric he writes is him revealing a bit more truth into what he is going through in his heart. To me, that is why he is able to connect so well with his fans. He gives us something to relate to. His music expresses what some words cannot, and that is the true meaning of authenticity. I am proud to be a fan of him because of this.”
Laura. 44. Worcestershire.
“Early last year, I was blown away by a song which I took to be from a new artist. It was, “Jealous,” by Nick Jonas in fact. Within just weeks of discovering who he was, I got to meet him at his album launch show in London. For me, his voice has a truly unique quality which you can only appreciate when you hear him singing live. He has done some incredible covers too, and I think it is so special when an artist can take an already brilliant song and turn it into something completely amazing. I don’t think there is an end to his song writing abilities, but what I love is how willing he is to push himself to show his vulnerability. Yet despite his accomplishments, he has still managed to stay humble and is a genuinely nice guy.”
