Jesse McCartney is an American singer-songwriter, actor and voice actor who rose to fame in the late 1990s on the soap opera All My Children and later joined boy band Dream Street, before branching out into a solo musical career.

McCartney started his career at 7 years old on the NY stage performing in Community Theatre. As a child, he appeared in the leading roles of the Broadway musicals; The King and I (9 yrs) and A Christmas Carol (11 yrs) with Roger Daltrey.

From the ages of 11 to 13, McCartney simultaneously acted on All My Children, which earned him two Daytime Emmy Award nominations and recorded with the group Dream Street, whose debut album went gold.

Jesse released his first solo album, Beautiful Soul, in 2004 which went platinum, selling over 1.8 million copies. He also co-wrote the smash hit Bleeding Love for singer Leona Lewis which was a #1 hit in 34 countries, the only song in over a decade to achieve this status.

The song won ASCAP's song of the year and was nominated for a Grammy Award. His single, Leavin', landed him a #1 spot on the charts and was Top 40 Radio's most played song of 2008. How Do You Sleep followed in 2009, also charting in the top 10.

McCartney's film credits include the teen cult classic Keith, which won five international film festival awards, followed by Beware The Gonzo and Chernobyl Diaries.

McCartney has voiced numerous animated characters for films, video games, and television series including all three Alvin and the Chipmunks films, Horton Hears a Who, Kingdom Hearts and Young Justice.
