Cymphonique Miller: Rapper’s kid knows ‘How to Rock’

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.

And Nick has featured her in guest roles on “True Jackson, VP,” “Big Time Rush,” “The Troop” and “Just Jordan.”

“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.
