Demi’s highly-anticipated fifth studio album, CONFIDENT, was released in 2015.

Her previous album, 2013’s DEMI, hit #1 on iTunes in over 50 countries around the world – with the lead single “Heart Attack” earning Platinum status just ten weeks after its release. “Heart Attack” was followed by the top 5 radio smash and platinum single “Neon Lights,” and her top 10 single “Really Don’t Care.” The album supported two headlining tours (NEON LIGHTS and DEMI WORLD TOUR) which made stops throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
In April 2017, Demi played the voice of Smurfette in the Sony animated film, ‘Smurfs: The Lost Village.’ Additionally, beyond the stage and the screen, in 2013, her book Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year, became a New York Times best-seller, and in 2014 she became a global ambassador for Sketchers.

As a result of her long-time commitment to raising awareness around LGBT issues and causes, in 2016, Demi became the recipient of GLAAD’s Vanguard award.
