He is also Ashley Tisdale's backup dancer. He is like in every performance of Ashley now. I think they look good together. I'm a JASHLEY fan. I don't even know how they are related. All I know is that they're a cute couple. I always see them together, excluding the performances, in photo captures. I learned that he sang in church when he was 5 years old. He's really talented.
