Following in the footsteps of Michael Jackson, LeAnn Rimes, and Miley Cyrus, Los Angeles’ own Meeghan Henry is striving to become her generation’s pop music prodigy. At only fifteen-years-old, the precocious and preternaturally talented Meeghan has already captured the attention of some of the most powerful and respected minds in the California music business.
According to music insiders who should know, it is not a manner of “if” young Meeghan becomes a star … only “when.” Like most successful child artists, Meeghan boasts a large and supportive family eager to help the young starlet achieve her dreams. Born Meeghan Henry in her parents’ homeland of Indonesia, Meeghan, while still a small child, approached her doting mother and told her that she wanted to spend her life entertaining people. With her mother’s full and unconditional support, the outgoing youngster was quickly earning local accolades as the winner of the Little Miss San Dimas pageant, the official voice of her elementary school, and a frequent performer on behalf of the city government of Los Angeles.
Unlike some budding child stars, however, Meeghan never let the acclaim go to her head. While steadily advancing up the music industry ladder, Meeghan has maintained a laser-like focus on her schoolwork, earning straight-A grades and serving as the Class President of her grade. Under her parents’ loving guidance, Meeghan is confident that she will never let fame or fortune go to her head or play havoc with her priorities. Meeghan’s road to fame began when she was discovered at California Sound Studios by music industry powerbroker Ronnie King. King is an internationally renowned producer and virtuoso keyboardist known for his behind-the-scenes work with such American icons as Mariah Carey, Tupac Shakur, and Snoop Dogg. On her album is also a new producer name C Minor, who produced such as Fallin’ For You and Dance Wit Me, and Terence Davis, who produced Best Friends Forever and Spooky. Meeghan’s debut album When I’m 18 was finished beginning of this year.
The most immediate result of her hard work is a February 20, 2010 date at the Saban Theatre sharing the bill with international recording sensation Colby O’Donis. A protégé of international multi-platinum artist Akon, O’Donis first reached the Billboard Top 20 Singles chart with his 2008 single “What You Got.” In early 2009, O’Donis’ duet with Lady Gaga, “Just Dance”, reached 1 on the Billboard 200 charts in the United States and sold over six million records worldwide. Sharing the marquee and stage with a multi-platinum artist may seem like an intimidating prospect for most 15-year-olds, but Meeghan is a seasoned pro and she undoubtedly stole the show that night. Though she may not have the profile of an international superstar — yet — there’s no denying that Meeghan has the composure and professionalism of a consummate music industry veteran.
