Alexandra started singing around the house when she was just 5. At 9 years old she sang on stage in Bahrain with her mother, one of the singers from Soul to Soul, and the audience loved her. From that moment onwards she was hooked on performing.
At the age of 12 years Alexandra entered Star for a Night where she was the youngest person in the competition but was beaten to the no.1 spot by Joss Stone. When she first started school she was bullied because she won all the singing competitions and was in all of the school choirs. As time went on the bullying resided and she now has fond memories of school. She left school after her GCSEs to pursue a career in music.
When Alexandras mum asked her to sing to Jean Carne, Jean was so impressed she asked her to perform at her show the next night and at 12 she sung down the phone to Stevie Wonder. Alexandra recently went on tour with Young Voices a charity that raises money for children with Leukaemia where she has performed at huge venues like The Royal Albert Hall.
Alexandra has lived in Islington all of her life and has 4 brothers and 1 sister. When she was 5 years old her parents split up and only recently has her father been there for her and her siblings. Alexandras Grandfather was always the backbone to the family and when he passed away in 2004 it left them devastated.
Alexandra has had no professional vocal training and learnt to sing through her mother and by listening to music. Her other hobbies include acting, dancing, and going to the gym.
After auditioning for X Factor in 2005 she got through to the judges houses stage but was kicked out by Louis as he thought she was too young. Despite this she continued singing at small events and writing her own songs and she cant imagine doing anything else.
