When you look at Olivia Holt, it’s obvious she’s stunning, but when you talk to Olivia, you quickly see it’s her inner beauty that shines the brightest. “I’m a person who wants to spread good every day,” says Olivia.
Olivia’s pursuit to spreading good every day was fast-tracked when she landed her big break in 2011 on Disney XD’s martial arts show as Kim on Kickin’ It. Olivia could have stopped there, but her drive and ambition have recently led her to wrap on her third film. WOW! Now that she’s made her mark on TV and film, Olivia is ready to make a splash in the music industry with her debut album on Hollywood Records which is due to drop this fall.
“I’ve played a character on TV for so long and made music for films as characters; this is the first time I get to share music as Olivia Holt, and I’m excited about that!”
Olivia’s first single is called Phoenix and has inspiring lyrics like “It’s your time now, you’ve got the heart of a Phoenix, so let them see you rise.” Olivia describes the track as an anthem that resonates with her personally. “It’s about finding inner confidence, stepping out of the darkness, and embracing who I am as an individual. I try to live by that mantra every single day,” Olivia passionately shared.
Just like her single says, we're about to see her rise. Look out for this superstar! She’s grounded, talented, and versatile. Remember the name Olivia Holt, a true triple threat and star on the rise; It’s her time now.
TOP 5 REASONS WE LOVE OLIVIA HOLT:

“It keeps me on my toes,” says Olivia, “it keeps me feeling like I need to keep doing good, there’s no better feeling. I’m lucky to have the fans that I do.”
She loves to give back.
“I’ve worked a lot with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which has been close to my heart since I was little. Working with them is super humbling and so special. The last time I was there I did a karaoke party with the kids, it was so much fun. I love being there.”
She’s a self-proclaimed weirdo.
“I’m goofy, I’m silly, and I’m probably a really abnormal 18-year-old, but I’m ok with that. I feel like weird is the best way to go.”
She’s got style.
“My favorite places to shop are Free People, Urban Outfitters, and Topshop.”
“I love game nights, going on hikes, travelling and making scrapbooks. I just love being surrounded by my friends and family; that’s something that’s really important to me, that I hope I never lose.”
