Ashley From ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ — Where is She Now?
Way back in the early 90s, Tatyana Ali stole our hearts as Will’s youngest sister on ‘Fresh Prince.’ It’s been a while, and we were wondering what she was up to, and if we still have a crush on her.
Yup, still have a crush on her. This Broadway-trained actress, singer, and activist is a graduate of Harvard, and won an NAACP award in 1995 for ‘Outstanding Youth Actor,’ for her work on the hit show. After it wrapped, she appeared in several films including ‘Kiss The Girls,’ ‘The Brothers,’ and ‘Glory Road.’
In 1998 Tatyana released her debut album, ‘Kiss the Sky,’ and toured with *NSYNC and The Backstreet Boys on their world tours. She also recorded a track for the Sesame Street movie, ‘The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland,’ a soundtrack which won the Grammy for ‘Best Musical Album for Children.’
In 2007 Ali toured the country for the Obama campaign, speaking to college students about the importance of voting. She sang on ‘Yes We Can,’ a campaign song which also featured will.i.am, John Legend, Herbie Hancock, Kate Walsh, Nick Cannon and Scarlett Johansson:
These days Tatyana is hard at work on her follow-up album, ‘The Light,’ and also stars as Roxanne on the CBS soap ‘The Young and the Restless.’ She’s also an active part of the Millennium Momentum Foundation, an organization that helps to educate young people about professional development and leadership.
