With over 2.6 million Twitter followers, over 3 million Facebook likes and more than 128 million YouTube views, 15 year old Cody Simpson is already an indisputable phenomenon. The Australian-born star made a stunning chart debut last summer as his âCOAST TO COASTâ EP entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #12. âCOAST TO COASTâ was highlighted by the hit single, âOn My Mindâ which proved a top 40 favorite at Pop radio outlets nationwide, having also hit #1 at Radio Disney (his second chart-topper at the network). The âOn My Mindâ companion video â directed by Travis Kopach (Panic! At The Disco, 3OH!3, Boys Like Girls) â is also a certified YouTube blockbuster with over 14 million views and counting at Codyâs official YouTube channel.

2012 is quickly shaping up as a banner year for Cody. Having kicked things off with his own sold out âWelcome To Paradise Tour,â Simpson was among the top stars invited to participate in the 134th annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
