As a child Nick began appearing across the Hudson River on Broadway, in small roles like Little Jake in Annie Get Your Gun and Chip in Beauty and the Beast. His stage connections led to a Christian-themed solo album, Nicholas Jonas (2004), which in turn led to the creation of the Jonas Brothers band. Nick Jonas plays guitar and piano and shares lead vocals with his brother Joe. The band's albums include The Jonas Brothers (2007, including the hit single "S.O.S.") and A Little Bit Longer (2008, with the single "Burnin' Up").
