As an actress, Bailey has played a primary role in the TV sitcom “Grown-ish,” and in 2023, she had her first lead role as Ariel in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.” Bailey was raised in Mableton, Georgia, with her three siblings. Their family eventually moved to Los Angeles in 2013. As children, Chloe and Halle started writing their songs and learning how to play instruments through YouTube tutorials. Their co-manager and father, Doug Bailey, started teaching them how to write songs at eight and ten.

While living in Georgia, Bailey played minor roles in films like “Joyful Noise,” having started acting at three years old, and the Disney movie “Let It Shine.” Bailey and her sister started their YouTube channel at ages 11 and 13, with a cover of Beyonce’s “Best Thing I Never Had.” Their first video to go viral was a cover of another Beyonce song, “Pretty Hurts.” They first performed as Chloe x Halle when uploading covers of pop songs on their channel. The duo made their talk show debut on “The Ellen Show” in April 2012.

In 2013, the Bailey sisters won Season 5 of “Radio Disney’s The Next Big Thing,” with them appearing in the Disney show “Austin & Ally,” performing the song “Unstoppable” the following September. In July 2019, Disney announced that Bailey was cast as Ariel in “The Little Mermaid,” a live-action remake of the 1989 animated film. She would also record and perform the soundtrack for the movie. Director Rob Marshall said Bailey “possessed a rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence and substance, plus a glorious singing voice, all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role.” “The Little Mermaid” was released in May 2023, and Bailey received praise from critics for her performance.
