flick "Some Kind of Wonderful." She followed up with roles in "Caddyshack II," "Say Anything...," and played Roxanne Pulitzer in the TV biopic "Roxanne: The Prize Pulitzer."

As you probably know, Chynna, along with childhood friends Carnie and Wendy Wilson, formed the trio Wilson Phillips. In 1990, the group released their self-titled debut album which would go on to sell ten million copies worldwide, go 5x multi-platinum, with three #1 singles. Billboard declared them the best-selling female group of all time, breaking the record previously set by The Supremes. Wilson Phillips was nominated for five Grammy Awards, an American Music Award and won a Billboard Music Award (for "Hold On" and "Release Me," written by Chynna).

Taking a break from the group, Chynna released a successful solo album entitled "Naked & Sacred" while also filming and starring in the lead role of the television remake of famed Broadway musical "Bye Bye Birdie." That same year she also married husband and fellow actor William Baldwin. She then took time off to focus on her family and had three children while also reclaiming herself and becoming a Christian.

In 2004, Chynna reunited with Wilson Phillips as the group released its 3rd album "California," which paid homage to West Coast musicians from the 1960s and 1970s. In 2009, she teamed up with singer/songwriter Vaughan Penn to form the Christian pop duo Chynna & Vaughan. They put out an album titled "One Reason." Shortly thereafter, Wilson Phillips also released their first Christmas album "Wilson Phillips Christmas in Harmony."

In 2011, Chynna announced that Wilson Phillips would be reuniting again for an original album to celebrate their 20 years together as a musical group. The group was also featured in the blockbuster comedy film "Bridesmaids."

Chynna works with the charity Los Angelitos Orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico, which is devoted to helping children who are displaced by the constant violence in the city and to creating a warm and loving environment for the kids.
