The Impossible Princess herself!



Also for the niche crowd, The Woolpackers

Aww I loved Daydreamin.

Barenaked is the song I always think of when I think of JLH as a singer.
Same. I had Barenaked on one of my mix CDs!
Yessss
I'll be forever confused about Kim Fields deciding to be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta then being surprised by the scheming.
She was so irritating that season. "Is there a difference between information and instigation?"
Hindsight, she was telling that to Kenya because she was stirring the pot by talking to Tammy.

This is what I think of when I think of people who released music when on TV -
Was he still on General Hospital at the time?
His Wiki says 1981-83 for his first run and Jessie's Girl came out in '81?
wait
he wasn't a musician BEFORE gh??

Those efforts by Alyssa.... even the video editor gave up


I was going obsessed with this song back in the day
This is one of the few songs during Leighton pop era that aged well in my opinion
i used to really like somebody to love as well but i cringe so hard @ robin thicke's parts now ugh
And good girls go bad with cobra starship!
I love her cover of Dreams with Dana Williams as well.
Alyssa had an interesting life before she became a professional Twitter poster.
omggggggggggggg those alyssa milano videos have me cryinggggg
I clicked on them because of this comment. Now I'm loling irl too
Omg the gliding chair lol. I sort of like the denim outfit with the black hat tho 🥴
Its always weird to remember that Alyssa was huge in Japan
Is the a Brandy statement related to Moesha? Brandy wasn’t huge when she was on Thea. I Wanna Be Down came out a year later.
Yes. A lot of Gen Z seems to think her and will Smith are actors that went into singing. Brandy always reminds me of Claire Danes, in the sense of someone who became really big after a show was cancelled after barely one season.
I always remember Tatyana Ali's song and video for "Boy You Knock Me Out". Was a bit of a one hit wonder with that song in the UK.
I didn't knew Jennifer Love Hewitt did singing until Bare Naked album came out and learn she did some singing in the 90s.

Had no idea Alyssa Milano did any singing at all. I only knew her through her acting.
Wow. A little motion sick from all the swaying there. I stopped watching this show before they got her and Eric Balfour on it.
I was born in the early nineties, so I didn't get to see any of these shows
Omg I had completely forgotten about this show

Re: JLH was on Kids Incorporated!

I loved this show as a kid.
I was OBSESSED with this show and it was only on during school hours. I had to learn to program the VCR to record it. I loved child/teen variety shows. Young Talent Time was my obsession as a little girl
Man I used to have such a crush on Joey Lawrence
I definitely sang along to Nothin’ My Love Can’t Fix from my

Yeah I was the right age when he hit, thought he was so cute. LOL!
Thanks OP, I didn't know about Alyssa Milano's musical past. She has terrific dance moves!
She also had a terribly titled workout tape, Teen Steam!
