Tiffini Hale, a member of the original cast of “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” and singer of the Disney pop group The Party, died at Christmas, according to a facebook post by his former co-stars. She was 46 years old.
“It is with the heaviest broken heart that we share the sad news of the passing of our beloved sister, Tiffini Talia Hale,” the publication read. “Earlier this month, she went into cardiac arrest that left her in a coma. After many prayers and with her family by her side, our dear Tiff took her last breath on Christmas morning. Now he is resting in peace. “
The post, signed by Hale’s “Mickey Mouse Club” co-stars Deedee Magno, Chasen Hampton, Albert Jeune Pierre Fields and Damon Pampolina and “the entire Mickey Mouse Club family,” said Hale’s family had requested privacy during his time of affliction.
“On behalf of the Tiffini family, and their Party and the MMC brothers and sisters, we want to thank you all for the love and good wishes you have expressed for our beloved Tiffini,” the statement concluded. “Her beauty, talent, style and fun-loving spirit will live forever in our hearts and memories.”
Hale’s former co-star and bandmate Hampton also posted a tribute to her Thursday on her Instagram account.
“She was humble, considerate and kind. She was playful and very funny. An amazing singer, character, and dramatic actress, and when music hit her dance skills for me, no female pop stars have matched us since! She was an absolutely amazing performer and I am so honored to have had her in my life. “
Hale was one of the original cast members of “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” and acted on the entirety of the show from 1989 to 1995.
The Party, which included Hale, Fields, Hampton, Magno and Damon and was an acronym for Positive Attitude Reflects Today’s Youth, performed early ’90s hits such as “In My Dreams,” “That’s Why” and “Summer Vacation.”
The group disbanded in 1993 and reunited in 2013 without Hale.
