After a meteoric rise through acting on various television programs including MTV’s Faking It and the Disney Channel’s Austin & Ally, SOFIA CARSON performed as part of the cast on the 2015 Descendants soundtrack, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. It included her single version of "Rotten to the Core," and so her second professional career was begun. While her acting continued, she still released singles. Now, seven years after beginning on Descendants and ten years after she initially signed to BMI, she’s released the eponymous album, Sofia Carson. So, while most people probably know Carson as an actress, she has been telling stories through music since she was three years old growing up between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Florida. Check out this month's In Tune cover story to learn more.
