Her recording career began when she became the youngest performer ever to win five times in a row at Amateur Night at The Apollo, which led to her becoming a “Star of Tomorrow” at Showtime at The Apollo. She was also a semi-finalist on the Arsenio Hall hosted “Star Search” in 2003, where Ben Stein commented, “This girl has the best stage presence out of any young performer I’ve ever seen.”

Due to the amount of fans asking for the music they heard Ashley performing in multiple episodes, ABC Family surprised fans (and Ashley!) during the summer finale of “The Fosters” by releasing a “Someone’s Little Sister EP”, which included the four songs she sang on the show for the season. Upon its release, the EP shot to number 18 on the iTunes Alternative chart and number 100 on the iTunes overall chart.
