September 1: pop musician Jasmine Sagginario - also known as Jasmine - is 19-years-old today.

Jasmine Sagginario was born on September 1, 1994 in California, but moved to Nashville, Tennessee when she was eight years old. Jasmine currently resides in Franklin, Tennessee.

Before she became a musician, Jasmine took up cheerleading, but due to a constant strain on her vocal cords from the cheers, she dropped it so she could focus on a career in music.

Jasmine is best known for winning Radio Disney's 2009 N.B.T. (Next Big Thing) competition. Jasmine was a featured artist on IShine KNECT, a Christian "tween show" on Trinity Broadcasting Network. In fact, her debut album was released on iShine Records. (Season 2 of IShine KNECT does not feature Jasmine.)

Jasmine was 15 in 2009, when she  entered and won Radio Disney's N.B.T. (Next Big Thing) music contest, besting, among others, Cymphonique Miller. Her featured songs in the competition were "Make a Movie" and "Nothing Left to Say" from her debut album, The Next Me. Shortly after, Jasmine was added to the Radio Disney playlist.

After The Next Me, Jasmine released her second single, "Boy Crazy." It was featured on the Radio Disney Jams, Vol. 12 CD. Then, in November, she released "Knock Knock," followed by a  music video and official remix for the song.

On January 5, 2012, Jasmine released her third single, "GYOB (Get Your Own Boyfriend)," under the label Jsound.

Jasmine is also pursuing an acting career and has been busy auditioning for roles in Los Angeles.
