Miley Cyrus: From Unknown to Worldwide Sensation

One of the greatest stories of Hollywood success comes from Miley Cyrus, a now internationally famous pop singer known for her starring role on the Disney Channel original series "Hannah Montana." Though Miley is well-known now, it wasn't always that way- and today, it's hard to believe that this superstar was unknown just 15 years earlier.


Miley Cyrus was born Destiny Hope Cyrus on her family's farm in Tennessee on Nov. 23, 1992. She was given her nickname "Smiley Miley" as a baby because she was always beaming and laughing. The nickname would end up sticking with her throughout her career. She had shown a passion for acting from a young age, and in 2004, Miley beat out 1,000 other actresses for the chance to play Miley Stewart, a seemingly ordinary high school girl who is secretly the insanely popular pop singer "Hannah Montana."


Hannah Montana would turn out to be Cyrus' big break, launching 98 episodes created over four seasons, three studio albums, as well as a theater movie, "Hannah Montana: The Movie." Cyrus also went on to record albums separated from her Hannah Montana character, many of which went on to top the Billboard charts. Today, although Cyrus has broken away from her Disney personality, she continues to top the charts. Her new album, "Younger Now," is rumored to be released in September, and will sure to please fans of this worldwide sensation.


Though Hannah Montana may not be airing anymore, signed vintage collectibles are still available online to commemorate the long-running show. For the Hannah Montana fanatic in your home, The Art of Music has a Hannah Montana poster for sale that has been personally signed by Cyrus herself.
