Cymphonique Miller has a lot to look forward to with a new Nickelodeon series in the works and her first BET Awards nomination.
Following in the footsteps of her older brother, Romeo, who acts and raps, Cymphonique is in the process of making a name for herself as a music artist and is now ready for the small screen.
The 14-year-old will star in the Nickelodeon comedy series, “How to Rock.” The show, slated to premiere in 2012, centers around a teenage girl who is the lead singer in a band.
“Cymphonique is an extraordinarily talented 14-year-old who has already established herself as an actress, singer and dancer, while remaining an honor student, and ‘How to Rock’ is the perfect showcase for her comedic and musical skills,” said Nickelodeon’s president of original programming, Marjorie Cohn.
The show will feature original music, and Cymphonique’s father, rap mogul Master P, is on tap to help create the sound for the show, Deadline.com reports.
Working with Nickelodeon is not new for Master P, who was integral in establishing Romeo as a young actor on the network where he starred in “Romeo!” for two years.
In between acting, college and music, Romeo has found time to work with his younger sister and lend his voice to her music.
Although some criticized BET’s decision to recognize Cymphonique in the Female Hip-Hop category, while omitting some more popular artists, she was gracious when she heard about the honor.
“Wow just found out I’ve been nominated for a #besthiphopfemale bet award. Blessed 4 an opportunity at my age. THANK U 2 ALL OF MY FANS !!!,” she tweeted.
