Disney star Roshon Fegan, 20, will be the youngest contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.” In the 14th season of DWTS, Fegan will be paired with professional dancer Chelsie Hightower. The pair may have a good chance at the crown as Fegan is a successful singer, songwriter, producer and actor.
The multi-talented 20-year old is best known for playing Ty Blue on Disney’s “Shake It Up!” and Sander Lower in the Disney Channel movies, “Camp Rock” and “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.”
Fegan has also developed a successful career as a hip-hop artist and rapper. He performed songs on the “Camp Rock” soundtrack and recently released his first self-produced EP, “I am Roshon.” The album includes two tracks, “Got Me Like” and “Top of the World,” that Fegan wrote and produced under his own label “3inaRo Entertainment”. Fegan also has a YouTube channel, “The RO and Co Show” which features him freetyle rapping alongside fellow actor Cody Linely.
The young star began his career at the age of 12 when he was cast in a small role in the 2004 film “Spider-Man 2.” Fegan also appeared in the TV series “Monk” in 2006 and in the comedy film “Drillbit Taylor” in 2008 before gaining a career-breaking role in the “Camp Rock” Disney film in 2010.
The DWTS full list of contestants was released Tuesday in anticipation of the new season, which is set to air on Mar. 19, 2012. In its 14th season, the show will feature Gavin DeGraw, Maria Menounos, Jaleel White, Donald Driver, among other stars and professional dancers.
