Growing up, Lovato won several talent contests and performed in famous venues, including the Eismann Center and the Dallas Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day Half Time Show with LeAnn Rimes. She started her show business career in earnest at the age of 10 when she became a series regular on the children's television show Barney & Friends. After her stint on Barney & Friends, Lovato also guest starred on television dramas Just Jordan (2007) and Prison Break (2006). Disney Star In 2007, Demi Lovato began working with the Disney Channel.

In 2008, Lovato covered the Academy Award-nominated song, "That's How You Know" from Enchanted on the DisneyMania 6 album. Later on in 2008, Demi began filming her second Disney Channel Original Movie, Princess Protection Program. The film was made in Puerto Rico and Lovato co-starred with her then-good friend Selena Gomez. Demi Lovato was the star of her own Disney Channel television show called Sonny with a Chance. The series debuted in 2009, becoming one of the channel's most popular programs and making Lovato one of its brightest stars. Sonny with a Chance ran until 2011.

The album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. In promotion of this album, Lovato went on tour with the Jonas Brothers on their 2008 Burning Up Tour as the opening act. On July 21, 2009, Demi Lovato released her second studio album, Here We Go Again. She went on tour again with the Jonas Brothers the following year and was romantically linked to Joe Jonas around this time. While on tour, Lovato got into an altercation with a dancer. The fight made headlines, and she sought treatment after the incident. According to People magazine, the singer sought help for "emotional and physical issues." Some of these issues were later revealed to be an eating disorder and self-harm through cutting. Months after completing treatment, Lovato released the 2011 album Unbroken, which featured the hit "Skyscraper." She put out her next record, Demi, two years later. Other Endeavors Outside of music, film and television, Lovato was also the national Hasbro "Hit Clips" spokes-girl.
