Kira Kosarin is a triple threat when it comes to singing, acting and dancing for her millions of fans. She quickly rose to fame playing the lead character, Phoebe Thunderman, in Nickelodeon’s hit show, “The Thundermans.” The series follows the lives of Phoebe and her twin brother, Max, who live in a family full of superheroes. “The Thundermans” had a successful run and wrapped after four seasons.

Following the show, Kosarin began to work on new music. Her first single, “Spy,” was released in March of 2018. Kosarin also released her hit song, “Vinyl,” which she recently sang at her first live television performance. Kosarin joined fellow former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell on several tour stops last year, promoting her music to new audiences worldwide.

In 2019, Kosarin has continued to create music, releasing mini covers on Twitter for her 246,000 followers. Kosarin’s most recent cover of Sam Smith and Normani’s “Dancing with a Stranger” showcases her vocals and guitar skills in a video.

Kosarin’s most recent single, “Take This Outside,” was released on Saturday, March 30, only 12 days before the release date of her album “Off Brand.” In an interview with Pulse Spikes, Kosarin talked about the meaning behind the song, revealing that it is about when you are in a crowded place and you make eye contact with that one person whom you want to be with and everybody else disappears. Kosarin captures the feeling of wanting to be alone with someone by saying let’s “Take This Outside.”

Kosarin has received positive feedback from fans on social media, with Twitter user @TiannahMakia writing, “Appreciation post for @kirak-osarin for releasing this absolute BOP. If you haven’t already listened to it you’re missing out!!”

On Twitter, Kosarin also posts 30-second videos of her practicing choreography for her tour. Fans are able to get an inside look at all of the hard work Kosarin does in order to put on a successful show.

On Wednesday, April 3, Kosarin announced that she was going to be joining season two of Hulu’s “Light as a Feather,” alongside Alex Wassabi.

Kosarin is set to play the character of Nadia in the series, which is about five girls who play a board game that takes a scarily accurate turn, leading to an intriguing series of events. 

Kosarin is embarking on her first “Off Brand” international tour over the summer alongside “The Voice Kids UK” star Jess Folley. Kosarin will stop in Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, London and Newcastle. Ticket sales opened on Saturday, April 6, at 10 a.m.

Kosarin can be found on Twitter and Instagram, under the handle @KiraKosarin on both, where she engages with fans daily and posts the most up-to-date information regarding her upcoming projects.
