Beyonce Proteges Chloe x Halle Join ‘Grown-ish’ Series
Singing sisters Chloe x Halle will appear on Grown-ish, ABC’s Black-ish spinoff. They will portray twin sisters Sky and Jazz, who are on the track team at the college.
They join previously announced cast Yara Shahidi, Deon Cole, Chris Parnell, Emily Arlook and Trevor Jackson. Francia Raisa (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) and Jordan Buhat (Summer of ’84) will also join as series regulars.
Grown-ish, from Black-ish executive producer Kenya Barris, follows the Johnsons’ eldest daughter Zoey (Yara Shahidi) as she heads off to college and begins her hilarious journey to adulthood but quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest. The series is set to premiere in early 2018 on Freeform.
Chloe x Halle (stylized as CHLOE X HALLE) are an American R&B duo, actresses, singers and YouTube sensations made up of sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey (born July 1, 1998 and March 27, 2000 respectively).
In 2013, after their cover for “Pretty Hurts” went viral with nearly 12 million views, Beyoncé signed them to her management Parkwood Entertainment. They were amongst the three talents she signed, others being Sophie Beem and Ingrid. They also won Disney’s Next Big Thing competition in the fifth season.
Their debut EP, Sugar Symphony, was released on April 29, 2016. The video for the lead single “Drop” has over three million views on YouTube. Later in 2016, they made cameo appearances in Beyoncé’s Lemonade visual album. They later served as Beyoncé’s opening act for the European leg of The Formation World Tour.
