Zac tells me Demi Lovato is a big deal. So when the folks at Park Place sent along the below photo and the release that follows after the jump, I decided to post them. That’s how it happened.
TV, movie and music star Demi Lovato buys first car from Park Place Motorcars Dallas Disney star Demi Lovato turned 17 last August, but she couldnÂ¹t really celebrate because she was in Canada filming Â³Camp Rock 2Â² with the Jonas Brothers. The film recently wrapped and Demi returned home to her family in Colleyville. One of her first stops was to visit her uncle David De La Garza, and to pick up her first car: a new 2010 Mercedes-Benz E350. Â³At the very top of her list was a trip to the Texas DMV,Â² reports De La Garza, Finance Director at Park Place Motorcars. Â³She wanted to have a Texas driverÂ¹s license rather than a California one. And she would only buy a car from Park Place MotorcarsÅ for obvious reasons.Â² David De La GarzaÂ¹s brother Eddie is DemiÂ¹s stepfather and manager. DemiÂ¹s mom Dianna is a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader and singer. DemiÂ¹s younger sister Madison De La Garza plays Juanita Solis (Eva Longoria’s daughter) on ABC-TVÂ¹s Â³Desperate Housewives.Â² Her oldest sister Dallas Lovato is an actress and singer as well. Demi got her start on the locally produced Â³Barney & FriendsÂ² TV show. Â³She ordered the 2010 E350 back in July,Â² said De La Garza. Â³The car is as loaded as you can get a car. It has absolutely everything: a high-end sound system, iPod kit, Parktronic, etc.Â² Best known as Mitchie Torres in the Disney Channel Original Movie Â³Camp Rock,Â² and Sonny Munroe in the Disney ChannelÂ¹s TV series Â³Sonny With A Chance,Â² Lovato is also a solo music artist. Her first album Â³Don’t ForgetÂ² debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 in September 2008. Lovato released her second album, Â³Here We Go Again,Â² last July. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, selling over 108,000 copies in the first week. Â³I have a firm commitment from my brother that all their luxury car purchases will be through Park Place,Â² says David De La Garza with a smile. Â³He knows there will be family trouble if they don’t.Â²
