: Raven-Symoné lyrics
Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman was born December 10, 1985 in Atlanta, Georgia. She is commonly knows as "Raven-Symoné", or sometimes just "Raven". Her career started in 1989 when Raven appeared as Olivia Kendall in the episode Denise: The Saga Continues on The Cosby Show. Since then, Raven has went onto star in movies such as Dr. Doolittle, Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, Dr. Doolittle 2, The Cheetah Girls, Zenon: Z3, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (where she sings along with Julie Andrews), For One Night, Everyone's Hero (Alongside Whoopi Goldberg), The Cheetah Girls 2, and College Road Trip (Alongside Martin Lawrence). She also had a recurring appearance in the hit Disney Channel show, Kim Possible, as Monique. In 2004, Raven starred in the third biggest Disney Channel show ever (only beaten by Lizzie McGuire and Hannah Montana), That's So Raven. That's So Raven brought Disney it's highest ratings since 2002 with Lizzie McGuire. For a long time, That's So Raven had the highest debut of any Disney Channel show until The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and later again broken by Hannah Montana, and That's So Raven spin-off, Cory In the House.
Raven's debut album, Here's to New Dreams, was released June 22, 1993, when Raven was only 7. The album failed to chart in the Billboard 200, but the single, "That's What Little Girls Are Made Of (feat. Missy Elliott)" peaked at number 68 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Raven's sophomore album, Undeniable, was released on May 4, 1999, when Raven was 13. The album also failed to chart on the Billboard 200. The album was later re-released on November 14, 2006 with an all new cover and title. It was called From Then Until.
Raven's third album, This Is My Time, was released on September 21, 2004, when Raven was 18. The album is her most successful to date. It peaked at number 51 on the Billboard 200. It spawned the successful single, "Backflip", which failed to chart on the Hot 100, but was a number one hit for Raven on Radio Disney. The album has sold over 512,000 copies world wide. It also hit number 15 in Canada.
Raven recently released her fourth album, Raven-Symoné, on April 29, 2008, when she was 22. It also hit the Billboard 200, but at a lower position. It has so far peaked at number 159 on the Billboard 200, however it has no promotion. Raven's fourth album is viewed as her most mature and best album by most of her fans and critics.
Raven was in the group, The Cheetah Girls, for their first and third albums as the film's soundtracks, but is not in the official group. The group has gone onto record an official debut album and a Christmas album.
