Miranda Sings (aka actress, comedian and singer Colleen Ballinger) has become an international phenomenon whose YouTube channel has amassed more than 8 million devoted subscribers and over 1 billion views. The character Miranda was created in 2008 to parody the young, self-absorbed singers with far more confidence (and vibrato) than talent who Ballinger saw uploading videos to YouTube. Miranda is known for her overdrawn red lips, questionable advice about singing and life, a deluded self-confidence, and over-the-top rants about her family and personal problems.
Ballinger has appeared as Miranda on Jerry Seinfelds Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. With her New York Times No. 1 bestselling book Selp Helf, and the hour-long comedy special inspired by it, Ballingers eccentric alter ego continues to grow beyond her YouTube channel.
