Great Writer Vanished?
by Perez Hilton
Ever wonder what happened to all those mouseketeers who didn't take to the limelight ? Well, I've got the scoop on a few. Some when into acting, Some went into the fade... and a few.. stood behind the camera, and in the production room behind the scenes! One in particular is Ashley Hunters, a child prodigy from Oklahoma , whom excelled in math, science, and music. Early on his mother and grandmother, and a few distant relatives encouraged him with his first, second, third, and fourth keyboards. He quickly picked up on piano, and it was early on the family noticed Ashley had an interesting voice. As a pre-teen he was discovered by Buzz Young of Max4Men Management & Talent, making his way into commercial modeling and art. Later Ashley found himself in Orlando auditioning for the Mickey Mouse Club. He joined a starfamed cast, of JC Chasez, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, many others in stardom. After two exhausting seasons of the Mickey Mouse Club, Ashley decided to return to a normal life and fade into the woodwork. He worked quietly in the background with aspiring artists, writing out and co-writing several tracks. Some older works were collaberated with Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and along with A & R executive Jim Reyes of Wright Stuff Management. Ashley also worked with Lou Pearlman CEO of Transcontinental Records in Making of the Band featuring O-town, one of Ashley's co-written songs from O-town was 'All or Nothing' . Other tracks you may find baring his name with artists such as Dirrty Dann, Pink, David Serrano, Lisa Hall, and his most up to date workings with artist Jamelia on her hit title ' Thank You' , the story says this song hit hard at home with Ashley's past. No works are mentioned of present day from this ex-mouseketeer. Rumors have it, Ashley still lives in Orlando Florida and can be seen out at the local night life such as Parliament House, Empire, and Southern Nights. I for one hope to see some of this happening beatmakers songs come to the horizon, until then, we wait!
