Before following in the footsteps of dad Billy Ray
, sisters Miley
and Brandi, and brother Trace by becoming a musician, Noah Cyrus started acting when she was three years old.
Roles on TV shows such as Doc and Hannah Montana and films including Mostly Ghostly led to Cyrus providing the voice of Ponyo in the English-language version of Hayao Miyazaki's 2008 anime film of the same name and singing the film's theme song with Frankie Jonas. Eventually, Cyrus turned her love of harmonizing with her dad into a full-fledged singing career. After signing a deal with Barry Weiss' Records
label, she released her debut single, "Make Me (Cry)," in November 2016. A collaboration with U.K. singer/producer Labrinth
, the song charted on the Billboard Hot 100. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
