Youth Impact Report 2011: Up Next
If the powers that be at Nickelodeon decide you’re a star, it’s only a question of when. For 15-year-old Cymphonique Miller, early 2012 should be her time.
That’s when Nick, in partnership with Alloy Entertainment (“Pretty Little Liars”), unveils musical sitcom “How to Rock” as a starring vehicle for Miller.
By then, the mellifluously monikered 14-year-old will have had plenty of practice both singing and acting. Daughter of Master P and sister of singer-actor Romeo, Miller has already released two albums and been nominated for a BET Award for her “Something” musicvideo.
“Rock” exec producer David Israel watched just five seconds of her audition tape before turning it off — he had seen enough.
“The first video I looked at, she was probably 12 and she was singing like somebody much older,” he recalls.
Miller got the part, about a young girl who dominates teen angst and humiliation by becoming the lead singer of a band. “To be this talented at this young an age, I feel like she has unlimited potential,” Israel says.
