By trotting into the limelight with “Charmed,” a TV show revolving around three sisters with magical powers.
It’s clear that Alyssa Milano has accomplished a lot because at 12 years old, long before her run on “Charmed” she had a successful bubblegum pop career in Japan. Yep, a Japanese record company offered a five-album deal that reached platinum status in the country.
Jada Pinkett Smith
The beautiful Jada Pinkett Smith began her rise to fame in the ‘90s, when she appeared in a number of major films, including playing opposite Eddie Murphy in 1996’s "The Nutty Professor." Since making her motion picture debut, she’s been in over twenty feature films, but did you know Jada is an ex metal-head?
In the year 2002, the actress created the metal band Wicked Wisdom, for which she was the lead singer and songwriter. The band released their self-titled album in 2006 and featured in some top-notch metal festivals around the world including Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's "Ozzfest."
In her 2003 role in "Mystic River," Emmy Rossum caught the industry's attention. Though these days, most people know Emmy Rossum as Fiona Gallagher in the hit Showtime series "Shameless." But what really made waves was her performance as Christine Dae in the film adaptation of "The Phantom of the Opera."
Rossum wowed audiences with her impressive operatic voice. In fact, her singing in the film caught the attention of record companies who flocked to her with deals to record a classical album. Ultimately the talented actress and singer turned them down and opted to produce a contemporary pop album. "Inside Out" was released in 2007.
This incredibly talented singer has a set of pipes on her. It’s never a surprise when Adele wins Grammy awards — after all, she racks up awards every time she releases an album and so far has won 15 out of the 18 she was nominated for. But aside from her singing achievements, she also some serious comedy chops.
Recently the accomplished singer appeared in an episode of SNL as host and surprisingly not as a musical guest! Adele proved just how great she is at improvised comedy, appearing in a handful of the show's sketches getting many laughs.
The world considered Brandy to be a full package of entertainment, as she sang, composed songs, and acted. Now, that is some incredible talent!

People were mesmerized by her portrayal of Roxie, on the Broadway production of "Chicago."
It only grew after that and Brandy’s passion for acting got her the role of "Moesha," in 1996, and this was to be her last role for TV. Brandy continued to amp up the heat on screen, with noteworthy roles in "90210," "Zoe Ever After" and "The Game."
