#4 Shahadi Wright Joseph
Okay, don’t be fooled by this 14-year-old American actress’s sweet face. Young and talented, she has taken on a variety of acting genres from horror (in the movie Us) to musicals (Hairspray Live!). Besides being the voice of young Nala, Joseph is also making waves with her debut single, Skin I’m In. Her sweet mix of pop and R&B with a pinch of youthful soul exclusively premiered on Billboard recently. If you have been feeling a bit off lately, perhaps listening to Joseph’s new anthem will remind you of the best of life and happy times.
