"Miley was born Destiny Hope Cyrus. I chose that name before she was born because it was her destiny to bring hope to the world. What I saw at the premiere, all the kids laughing and singing and dancing and being happy, I go 'Yeah, she really did find her destiny.' I think that laughter and dancing and singing is the definition of hope." Miley Cyrus' father Billy Ray is proud of his daughter's achievements.
