Teenage dance-pop singer and actor Jacob Latimore grew up around music - his father and uncles make up the inspirational quartet, The Latimore Brothers. By 2005, the 9-year-old Jacob had made up in his mind that he wanted to pursue a career in music. With the support and help from his parents, he teamed up with local Milwaukee producers who put together his first song, "Best Friend," which got picked up by Radio Disney. Jacob was featured on the station's Incubator program, which profiles promising young artists around the country.
In 2007, Jacob's parents and management agreed that in order to take Jacob's career to the next level, it would be ideal to move him to Atlanta. In his new location, Jacob continued to make even more noise as his single, "Superstar," produced by the Corna Boys and Rico Love charted on the Billboard R&B and Hip Hop Sales Charts with little to no promotion.
By 2010 Jacob was pursuing a parallel career as an actor. After several commercials, voice-overs, and TV episodes he got booked for his first lead role in the post-apocalyptic feature film, Vanishing Street.
