She’s being groomed as Australia’s next “Little Big Thing”.

At 12, Gold Coast girl Jordyn Yarker has her own Los Angeles-based agent and a record deal with the producers of Eminem and Bruno Mars.

She has also been short-listed for a role in a big-screen adaptation of the musical Annie, starring Cameron Diaz.

Jordyn, who has just released her seventh song, has begun home-schooling and is about to move to America with her parents to try to crack the big time.

“I miss hanging out with my friends but home schooling is pretty cool,” she said, “I have a couple of really good friends I know will be with me through my whole journey.”

Jordyn’s parents/managers, Cameron and Lisa, have held talks with Disney and Nickelodeon and she has just been cast in a new vampire movie called Piccaddilly

“She has the talent, confidence and work ethic, and a lot of top people in the US believe in her, but in the end it’s her dream,” Mr Yarker said.
