Nick Jonas’s father was an ordained minister who surrounded his four sons -- Kevin, Joey, Nick, and Frankie -- with music. At age 7, Nick became a child actor on Broadway. At age 11, a chance encounter with a chiropractor landed him a record deal -- which soon morphed into a deal for Nick, Joey, and Kevin as the Jonas Brothers. Despite early setbacks, their 2007 self-titled album catapulted them to teen idol status. The Disney Channel series, the Disney Channel films, along with the purity rings all projected an image of a clean-cut boy band. But years of growing up in the public eye took its toll, and in 2013 the Jonas Brothers announced they were splitting. Nick initially struggled to prove he was more than a former boy band member. But today, he has established himself as a singer songwriter, as well as a film and stage actor.
