Ali has performed in many musicals including, “RENT”, “Carousel”, “Sweet Charity” and sang soloist most memorably for Roy Gregory at the Barbican “Christmas Carol” concert.

On leaving London in 2005, Ali was snapped up by Maureen Cairns Artist Management and within a few weeks was recording for BBC Scotland’s soap “Rivercity” as the Secret WAG of Footballer Andrew Murray. Ali has appeared in numerous television and theatre shows and proved herself as a natural in front of the camera.
