Today*s Star - Halsey

Powered by First County Bank

She's only 23 and has alredy sold out Madison Sq Garden and was #2 on the Billboard Charts last year.

This girl is a superstar and I don't know if it's due to her haunting voice, superb lyrics, or her down-to-earth personality.  She's like a punkish version of Taylor Swift, and it works for her!

Born and raised in New Jersey as Ashley Frangipane, Halsey says she chose her name because it's an anagram of her birth name.  She attributes her mixed-race heritage as one of her defining characteristics. She was discovered on Soundcloud in 2014 when she uploaded her song "Ghost." 

She has also been super open regarding her mental health struggles.  She was diagnosed with BPD when she was 16.

But that didn't slow her down.  Her debut album, Badlands, is RIAA certified Platinum and her debut single "New Americana" was also certified Platinum. 

Her collaboration with The Chainsmokers led to her #1 hit, Closer, which is also RIAA certified 3x Platinum.  She also did a duet with Justin Bieber for The Feeling.
