From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Joseph "Joey" Lawrence (born April 20, 1976 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) is an American actor. He became successful through the TV show Blossom in the 1990s, in which he played the character Joey, a dim-witted but handsome young man who frequently uttered a term that became a touchstone for the era, "Whoa". At that time he was also successful by his nickname JOEY Lawrence. In later years he switched over to Joseph Lawrence.

He has also starred in shows such as Gimme a Break!, American Dreams, Brotherly Love and Run of the House. He has two brothers--actors Matthew Lawrence and Andrew Lawrence. One of his international movie credits include "Urban Legends: Final Cut" (2000) together with Jennifer Morrison, Matthew Davis and Hart Bochner.

He had a short music career. While still being a teenage heart-throb and famous from his TV show Blossom, he recorded his debut album (titled: "Joey Lawrence") in 1993. The album was produced by US producers, such as Terry Lupton (Michael Learns To Rock, Jamie Stevens, Apollonia Kotero), Elliot Wolff (Paula Abdul), or Ian Price (Taja Sevelle, Sheena Easton). The album included the international hit single "Nothin`My Love Can't Fix" (UK #13). Two more singles from this album also managed to crack the UK Top50 ("I Can't Help Myself" #27, "Stay Forever" #41). A second album, "Soulmate" followed three years later but did not produce any hit singles.

He was married to former producer Michelle Vella, but the couple have since separated and divorced. He is now married to Chandie Yawn-Nelson whom he met at Disney World back in 1995 and married in the summer of 2005. Chandie is a small town girl from Alabama.

He is also commonly mistaken for a popular young artist, also named Joey Lawrence.
