Alisan’s performance and adorable curly locks are unforgettable, but it looks like the film’s fans haven’t heard much about her after that. Or maybe they have, but never realized it was her all along?

How Alisan looks like now?

If you look at Alisan now, you probably won’t even recognize her at first.

Without the cute curls and chubby cheeks, she sure looks different!

What does Alisan do?

Alisan decided not to pursue a career in acting and retired from the business in the early ’90s. She struggled with addiction in her early twenties but cleaned up her act in 2007. Then she fell in love, got married, and gave birth to two beautiful kids.

In 2016, Alisan was back in the spotlight, but in a different form of art. She successfully auditioned for NBC's singing competition The Voice and ended up on Christina Aguilera’s team.

Alisan continued to impress the judges, viewers, and her mentor with her amazing voice and ultimately became the winner of the show’s 10th season!

Alisan’s music career is in full swing, and she had never expected that she would become a professional singer. She hadn't even been too eager to audition for the show that would make her a star again, but went for it anyway and won! She told HuffPost at the time:

'I’m glad that I did [it]… I walked through a lot of fears and I won!'

She took that second chance and it paid off. Great for her!
