Aliyah Moulden stole our hearts when she competed on Team Blake during The Voice this past season. America seemed to agree with our opinion, as she was the youngest contestant to ever make it to the finale.

Aliyah may not have won the competition, but she wins in many other ways. The 15-year-old just landed the lead role in Netflix’s Anastasia: Once Upon A Time and is working on new, original music.

Celeb Secrets caught up with Moulden recently to talk about being apart of Anastasia: Once Upon A Time. She also weighed in on her time at The Voice and that she really wants a boyfriend (aw)!
