Once called the greatest teen star of all time for her string of roles in John Hughes' films such as "Sixteen Candles" (1984), "The Breakfast Club" (1985), and "Pretty in Pink" (1986), Molly Ringwald has had an outstanding career in film and television for over the past 29 years. Currently co-starring on the ABC Family show "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," there hasn't been many times that we have had an opportunity to forget the little redhead darling that was the Shirley Temple of the 80s.

But, now Ringwald is showing us where it all began for her with the release of her first solo album effort "Except Sometimes" (currently available online and in retail outlets). A collection of jazz standard arranged songs, "Except Sometimes" represents the jazz Molly was introduced to by her jazz pianist father as a young girl of 5 years old. That's when Molly appeared on her first jazz album singing the Shirley Temple favored "I Wanna Be Loved by You" with her father Bob Ringwald and his Dixieland Jazz band the Fulton Street Jazz Band.

Adding recording artist to her list of performance accomplishments in 2008 with the release of her first single "Save Me", Ms. Sweetbriar will soon release her fifth dance single in 2012 called "Show It Off"..
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
