Rise to Stardom

Born into “The Rush Fam”, Cali featured on videos on various YouTube channels run by her parents since she was a little baby. Her father launched the channel TodayWithTray on September 14, 2015 and uploaded the video, titled FIRST VLOG EVER!, the same day. Cali, who was less than two years old at the time, could be heard calling out to her father from off-camera as he attempted to make the first family vlog on a sleepy morning. She and her older brother were introduced for the first time in that very video. While the channel was initially intended to feature videos focused on Tray’s fatherhood experience, it quickly evolved into a whole-family endeavor in which the two siblings, especially Cali, occupied the center stage. She did make up for her doll in a video posted on October 25th and even participated in the challenge video, BABY DOES BEAN BOOZLED CHALLENGE!!, on November 26th. Apart from videos on her father’s channel, she also began appearing on her mother’s channel, “shortyisdope”, which was created in June 2016. The original channel started by Tray, which was eventually renamed to The Rush Fam” and is the hub for fun family content including vlogs, pranks, challenges and skits, currently boasts of more than 2.28 million subscribers.
