Recently, he attended Sheryl Lee Ralph's 29th annual DIVA Foundation gala, where she asked Young and Brandy about the possibility of bringing "Moesha" back to life. Of course, they were excited about the idea and wish it'd be picked up for production. After all, everybody misses the classic sitcom.
