You might know Bridgit Mendler from popular TV shows such as Good Luck Charlie or Wizards of Waverly Place. But you might also know her from her first single, Ready or Not, on her debut album, Hello My Name Is…, soon to be released October 22, 2012. Like many actors, Bridgit started her career young, becoming the youngest performer in the San Francisco Fringe Festival. Also like many actors, she has moved onto a music career. But before you sigh and click the x at the top of the screen, Bridgit isn’t like all of those actor/singers who somehow manage to get out a note on stage. This 19 year old can actually sing.
Bridgit started her singing career in a familiar place: Acting. She performed the theme song in Good Luck Charlie, as well as a cover of When She Loved Me in Toy Story 2. She has also recorded songs for Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 and Lemonade Mouth. In March 2011, Bridget stepped outside the Disney Channel bubble and was signed with Hollywood Records, which features her boyfriend and co-star from Good Luck Charlie, Shane Harper, on one song called, My Song for You. Her first single, Ready or Not, is said to be an empowering song about going after what you want – and for that we think she makes the perfect Flurt!
