Who Is Aj Michalka?

AJ Michalka is an American actor, singer-songwriter, musician, and former model, best known as one half of the musician duo ‘Aly and AJ.’ She performs along with her sister, Aly Michalka. Born in Torrance, California, AJ was inspired by her mother, Carrie, who herself was a musician. AJ spent most of her childhood years in Torrance, Seattle, and Milwaukee. The sisters grew up playing the guitar and the piano at an early age. By the time they stepped into teenhood, they were well-versed in their domain. AJ began acting when she was 5 years old and played roles in theatrical productions held at churches. AJ was also active in her school’s musical productions. AJ made her acting debut in 2002, as an 11-year-old child with a small role in the series ‘Passions.’ Over time, she appeared in key roles in series such as ‘The Guardian,’ ‘Oliver Beene,’ and ‘All My Friends are Getting Married.’ She is perhaps best known for appearing in a recurring/regular role in the sitcom ‘The Goldbergs.’ She has appeared in films such as ‘Secretariat’ and ‘Angelscand has since released two more albums.

They Focused on Music More Than Acting for the Rest of the 2000s

After "Cow Belles," Aly and AJ Michalka turned their attention to making more music. The sisters released their second full-length album, "Acoustic Hearts of Winter," in 2006, and their third, "Insomniatic," in 2007. "Insomniatic" ushered in an edgier style with hits like "Chemicals React" and "Potential Breakup Song," both of which got plenty of airplay on Radio Disney and Disney Channel.

Both Michalkas also began acting in the 2000s. AJ (then known as Amanda) had roles on shows like "The Guardian" and "General Hospital." Meanwhile, Aly landed the role of Keely Teslow on the Disney Channel's "Phil of the Future," and she debuted an Aly & AJ song called "Protecting Me" in a 2004 episode. They've each enjoyed major successes in their television careers, but the famous sisters are clearly also musical beings who speak powerfully to their audiences. While their songwriting output has shifted as they've grown up, Aly & AJ still have devoted fans who are inspired by them and support them with every new song. (Source: www.nickiswift.com)
