The Michalkas are often inseparable, and each of them is visibly present in what happens in the lives of the others. Here we will find out what the relationship between them is like, and introduce you to AJ as well as we have gathered information about her.
Who Is AJ Michalka
AJ Michalka (Amanda Joy Michalka) was born on April 10, 1991, in Torrance, California, the son of Mark, who runs a contracting company, and his wife Carrie, who is a professional musician and performer with the JC Band.
As an adolescent, she spent some time in Seattle and later in Milwaukee. AJ attended Mack Elementary, where she played an important role in several musical productions. She got into the arts early on, when she started performing in church plays at the age of 5, learned to play the piano at 6 and guitar much later. Eventually, her life was to revolve around music and acting.
AJ Michalka made her acting debut in March 2006 with a Disney Channel original movie called Cow Belles, in which she played the character of Courtney Callum alongside her sister Aly Michalka, who played Taylor Callum. A few years later, she found a role in The Lovely Bones, a Peter Jackson movie released in the first days of January 2015.
Other films and television series that have honored her include the MTV movie Super Sweet 16: The Movie, J. J. Abrams’ Super 8 in 2011, Grace Unplugged in 2013, which became her biggest screen role since she was the main character, and ABC’s The Goldbergs, in which she played the role of Lainey Lewis. This was followed by Weepah Way for Now, which she co-produced in 2015, Dirty Lies (2016), in which she played the role of Tiffany, Apple of My Eye (2017) as Kai, and as Krista in Support the Girls (2018).
AJ’s musical career began in 2009 when she formed the musical duo 78violet with her sister Aly. 78violet lasted until 2015 before they decided to return to their original names, which they have kept ever since. Some of her remarkable musical works include “It’s Who You Are”, released in 2010 on the album “Secretariat”, “You Never Let Go” on the album “Grace Unplugged” from 2013, and “Walking on Sunshine” with Hayley Orrantia on the album “The Goldbergs Mixtape” (2017).
In fact, AJ Michalka has had much success in her career, in particular winning the Movieguide Award 2014 in the category “Most Inspiring Performance in Movies”. This award was given to her for her Grace Unplugged work. She also won a Napa Film Festival Award in 2015, which she shared with her sister for her film Weepah Way for Now.
What Is Her Relationship With Aly Michalka?
Wherever AJ Michalka is mentioned, Aly Michalka is certainly mentioned, because every success AJ Michalka has had in her entertainment career is very much related to the works she has created with AJ Michalka.
AJ Michalka is the younger sister of Aly Michalka, half of the former 78-piece purple music duo. Both girls grew up under the watchful eyes and caring hands of their music-loving parents. They were both brought up in a Christian upbringing and have remained the same since they came of age. However, their parents are now divorced.
Since their song “Hothouse” from 2013, almost nothing has been heard from them musically, but judging by some tweets the duo has made in 2016 and 2017, we certainly expect something worth waiting for from the music of Aly & AJ.
According to records, Aly was born on March 25, 1989. She is now married to independent film producer Stephen Ringer. Aly had met him on the set of her film Sequoia, whereupon they became friendly. The two decided to follow their feelings, they became lovers and finally got married on June 6, 2015, in a small Christian wedding ceremony in Portofino, Italy.
Despite Aly’s marriage, the relationship between the sisters has remained as close as ever. They are not only professional musicians and actresses, but also sisters who have lived their whole lives in the consciousness of the others and have achieved professional success together. Their bond is unbreakable.
