Although Hudgens, who turned 25 in December, has been most associated recently with film-making, she has a solid musical background.
She started appearing in theater productions as a pre-teen in such musicals as Carousel, The Wizard of Oz, The King and I and The Music Man.
Her big breakout movie came in 2003 when she landed a supporting role in gritty teen drama “Thirteen.”

The film was acclaimed by critics and in 2005, she landed a role in the Disney television movie “High School Musical.”
She starred in two more “High School Musical” sequels and released her first album. It went gold with more than 500,000 sales.
After the weak commercial performance of her second album, Hudgens left Disney’s label, Hollywood Records, and said she would focus on acting.
But she hasn’t forgotten how to turn on a dance routine, with her backup crew.
YLA had a mini-breakout last year and is represented in the video by Noreen Juliano, Chelsea Corp, Laura Jayne, and Michelle “Jersey” Maniscalco, who choreographed the dance.
