Miley Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus; November 23, 1992) is an American actress and singer-songwriter. She is the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus. She made her debut in three episodes of the series Doc before appearing in a minor role for the film Big Fish in 2003. In 2006, she was established as a teen idol with the success of the Hannah Montana franchise, a former Disney Channel sitcom in which she portrayed the role of Miley Stewart and Hannah Montana. Cyrus later recorded numerous songs for the soundtrack of the first season. She later signed a deal with Hollywood Records and released the joint album Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus. The album served as both a soundtrack and Cyrus' debut album, and went on to sell over three million copies in the US alone. The album also spawned the Top 10 hit "See You Again" and the less successful "Start All Over". To promote the album, Cyrus embarked on the Best of Both Worlds Tour, which was later adapted into the 2008 film Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert. Cyrus released her first solo album, Breakout, in 2008. The album became her third to top the Billboard 200, and was certified Platinum by the RIAA. Breakout featured the successful singles "7 Things" and "Fly on the Wall".
