More than two decades have passed since Kristy McNichol, who starred in Family and Empty Nest, stepped away from her life as one of the biggest child stars of her day in the hopes of leading a quiet life of her own design.
Although she rarely gives interviews, she spoke to PEOPLE this week about her passion for singing in the Los Angeles Valley Community College choir and her support for the Los Angeles Valley College Foundation. "Music can make such a difference," McNichol says. "It has in my life, and I've seen how it transforms others."
"I enrolled in the Los Angeles Valley College Music program four years ago because I wanted to sing in choir," says McNichol, 51. "I always liked singing. When people come together to sing, it's very relaxing and spiritual and healing. So I kept coming back."

Jimmy Kimmel is known for bringing laughs to late night, but he's also used his comedic talents to bring levity to a charity event that means a lot to him.
The talk show host, 47, has been attending the L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade Culinary Cookout for the past five years, and he's also taken a turn as the fundraiser's emcee.
"I've had many relatives die of cancer," says Kimmel of his connection to Alex's Lemonade Stand, which helps raise money for childhood cancer research, "but it's really more about the possibility of that happening, and looking at being a parent and seeing these people who decided that instead of being devastated by [the loss of their daughter to cancer] – which of course they were – they were going to do something to help others in memory of their daughter."

Jonny Lee Miller is racing to find a cure for Sanfilippo Syndrome.
On Saturday, the Elementary star will wake up in darkness and begin a 50-mile run through Bear Mountain, New York, on behalf of Jonah's Just Begun, a non-profit formed by one of Elementary's crew members whose child was diagnosed with Sanfilippo.
Miller's goal is to raise funds and awareness for the ultra rare disease, which can cause brain damage, bone deformities and organ failure, and often dramatically shortens the lives of children – many of whom don't live beyond their teenage years.
"There's not enough being done for these kids right now," Miller, 42, tells PEOPLE.
So he runs with an incredibly powerful motivator: "They're little kids, and they're families, and what's more important than that?"
