Talent runs in the Mowry family, and Tia and Tamera Mowry's brother, Tajh, has succeeded in making a career for himself, away from his siblings' fame.
On Tajh Mowry's Instagram profile, he describes himself as a guy who sings and acts sometimes, but the brother of "Sister, Sister" stars, Tia and Tamera Mowry owes his fame to the latter.

HE STARTED YOUNG
Tajh, like his sisters, started his career at a young age, beginning in '84 as a guest star on "Greg" at the age of four. In '90, he appeared in "Who's the Boss?" and in '97, he played a young prodigy on the Disney sitcom, "Smart Guy."
The next few years saw the then-young actor star in several sitcoms like "Aladdin," "Out All Night," and "Sonic the Hedgehog."

The actor also portrayed "Teddy" in "Full House," and in October, he said during an appearance on Today that he loved playing the role because his character was the best friend everyone wants, and he kept things "Real" and honest all the time.
A GREAT PASSION FOR MUSIC
A young Tajh also joined Tia and Tamera on "Sister, Sister," portraying "Sammy," "Cousin Taj," and "T.J. Henderson." In 2000, he teamed up with his sisters in the Disney movie, "Seventeen Again," and also appeared subsequently in "The Poof Point," and "Hounded."
However, towards the end of the first decade in the 2000s, Tajh chose to leave movies for a while, and focus on his singing career. In 2015, the actor while appearing on the "Wendy Williams Show" said,
"My music is my love life… music is a passion of mine, and I feel so blessed to be at a point in my life where I can really show that now."
BECOMING CELEBRITIES DIDN'T CHANGE THE MOWRY SIBLINGS
Tajh released an album that summer, and while he has not won any major awards for his singing, he has done well enough for himself to own a home in one of the posh areas of Los Angeles.
The "Baby Daddy" star has also maintained a close relationship with his sisters through the years and appeared on Tamera's "The Real" in 2017.
Tamera and Tia have also had successful careers after their child star days, but beyond acting, the sisters and their brother share a deep Christian faith.
Despite their celebrity status, they still find time to go to church and hold onto the values instilled in them as children by their grandmother.
