At just 20 years old, Demi Lovato has become the voice of her generation through her music and honesty about her struggles with weight and depression. And on Dec. 21, fans can tune into see the “X Factor” judge perform in front of President Barack Obama – easily one of the highlights of the Albuquerque, New Mexico native’s career.
The “Christmas in Washington” special – now in its 31st year – features Lovato, Diana Ross “Smash” actress Megan Hilty and PSY, who will be performing his hit “Gangnam Style.” Hosted by comedian Conan O’Brian, the concert benefits the Children’s National Medical Center as the President and First Lady take in the star-studded performance.
Lovato, who just wrapped up the second season of the “X Factor,” has promised fans a new album release in 2013.
“I’m having so much fun writing the music right now! I just wrote two songs this past week that are lighthearted and funnier. They have some funny lyrics, but great beats so you don’t really notice at first and will be like, ‘Wait, did she just say that?’” Lovato told website Just Jared Jr. about her upcoming fourth studio album.
“I think this album is going to be a lot better. I’m trying to stay away from the dubstep and dance music because I just want to bring instruments back into the picture when it comes to pop radio. I want people to really enjoy my music because it’s actually music.”
