Who Are The Jonas Brothers?

It is not unusual for some members of a family to choose the same or similar careers. That's what all four of the Jonas brothers did. All of them are in show business. The three older brothers are part of the band, The Jonas Brothers. However, the fourth brother is also recognized by the public.

The brothers were born to Denise Marie Jonas, a former sign language teacher, and singer. Their father Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., is a songwriter, musician, co-founder of Christ for the Nations Music ministry, and a former ordained minister at an Assemblies of God Church in Wyckoff, New Jersey.

All of the brothers look alike with similar eyes and noses. Quite often people have to take a second look to determine which brother they are seeing on television.

All the brothers were born in different places because their parents traveled a lot for their music ministry.

  • Paul "Kevin" Jonas II was born in Teaneck, New Jersey on November 5, 1987.
  • Joseph "Joe" Jonas was born in Casa Grande, Arizona on August 15, 1989.
  • Nicholas "Nick" Jonas was born in Dallas, Texas on September 16, 1992.
  • Franklin "Frankie" Jonas was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey on September 28, 2000.

Importance of Christian Faith

The Christian faith is very important to all of the brothers. They stay away from controversial subjects and politics in their lyrics. The brothers abstain from alcohol, tobacco, and drugs to protect their voices. Before they were married, they all wore purity rings on their left-hand ring finger.

All of the Jonas brothers donate 10% of their earnings to their non-profit Change for the Children Foundation “to support programs that motivate and inspire children to face adversity with confidence, determination, and a will to succeed.” It was Nick's idea to start this charity after seeing a homeless family on the streets in New York City.

Because Nick was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was only 13, he teamed up with Bayer Diabetes Care as a diabetes ambassador for young people. Since the three older brothers are now married, they have other charities with their wives.
