Twinkle Time

Twinkle Time

Alitzah (like Pizza), a California native, began performing at the young age of eight in numerous musical productions and commercials. As a teenager, she became a series regular in the first Spanish family comedy "Sanchez of Bel-Air" for the USA network and recurred on NBC's "My 2 Dads." In 1996, she helped form an all-girl singing group with friends that would be later known as "Nobody's Angel." Nobody's Angel was signed to Hollywood Records and their debut album was released in 2000. They opened up for Britney Spears and The Backstreet Boys. The girls also created and developed a pilot for ABC Family. In 2002, the girls earned a gold record for two of their songs on the "Princess Diaries" soundtrack.

Where did you come up with your stage name?

What do you mean ?? Twinkle IS my name ;)

You had early success in the girl/boy band years. What made you make the jump in kid's music?

I had an awesome 7yrs with Nobody's Angel but when that chapter of my life ended I started teaching singing, dancing and musical theatre to Kids (ages 2yrs - 13yrs) all over Southern California and being a birthday party entertainer ( YES, I FINALLY got to be Ariel , Princesses and other characters) I realized how much I loved working with KIDS! That one day I had what OPRAH calls an AH HA moment!

I said to myself AH HA I know what I want to with my life! I want to be a pop artist/magical teacher for KIDS and build a Children's Empire. I wanted to do something FUN yet EDUCATIONAL ! From teaching Kids, I realized we all learn differently and I wanted to implement song and dance with learning positive messages ( MAGICAL lessons) with a bilingual spin so I set the wheels in motion and started it off by writing songs and developing a a theater show. Ever since I was a kid I always wanted to be a pop artist ! I didn’t know that it would be with Orange hair, hearts and tutus BUT I love this colorful journey that I’m on and even though doing something on your own is hard and ALOT of work I wouldn’t trade it in for anything! Like I tell the KIDS You Just Gotta Dream Big and that I do! ;)
