Her second album, NightWalkin, was released on RCA Records in 1987 and included the songs "Do You Dream About Me?" (for the movie "Mannequin) and "Into My Secret" (which reached #9 on the Hot Dance US charts). Her third album Bounce Back was produced by Michael Jay and was released on MCA Records in 1990. It included the title track (which reached #10 on the Hot Dance US charts) and the single "Wrong Number", as well as featuring the background vocal talents of Martika and Donna De Lory. In 1996 Alisha released the dance single "Wherever The Rhythm Takes Me" (produced by Critique/Fever Records) and in 1999 was chosen to sing "You Wanna Be A Star", the title song for the Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon movie Superstar.
