Remember The Lil’ Girl From Five Heartbeats? We Found Her!

Posted On : July 16, 2015

Okay family, how many of you remember the lil’ girl who was sangin’ (yes we said sangin’…LOL) in The Five Heartbeats? Her name is Tressa Thomas and she was 12 years old when she starred in the film and killed it with her version of “We Haven’t Finished Yet?”


She Stole The show As "Duck's" Baby Sister....

Tressa-Thomas-Five-HeartBeats She stole the show as Robert Townsend's character "Duck's" baby sister. Well in case you were wondering where she's been and what she's doing now, we've found her and she is now 36 years old, still doing her thing. Alright before we go any further, can we talk about how good Tressa is looking now? Her all grown up now...yes she is! She still performs live and releases new music periodically.

It looks like Tressa has capitalized off of her childhood stardom well. She is a beautiful woman, with a beautiful voice and a dedication to her craft. All too often entertainers who were in her position back in the day, don’t get the spotlight they deserve in today’s entertainment climate. So we wanted to shine a light on the Tressa Thomas- the singer, actress, producer, model, and business woman- and we wish her much continued success in all of her future endeavors.
