Her name is Lexy and she is a 15-year-old pop singer living in Charlotte. Her debut album, Today Is The Day, was released in February in Canada. Musically comparable to other pop marvels such as Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson, Lexy is determined to sing her way to the top of the charts.
Lexy began modeling and acting when she was 7 years old. When she was 9, she was classically trained in opera. Courses led her on a journey through a variety of musical soundscapes -- from opera to country to pop. "Pop is what I really wanted to do. So, I asked my parents, 'Hey can I start doing pop?'"
Lexy likes a variety of music. Her favorite artists are John Mayer and Norah Jones, but her main influence is Christina Aguilera. "I think she has an amazing voice and I just love how she puts her heart and soul into all of her music."
Often on the go with interviews, photo shoots and touring, Lexy is a busy girl. On March 17, she performed at Concord Mills mall.
How does Lexy describe her own music? "Youthful pop that is really fun, upbeat music. It typically has an age range of about 7 years old to around 17 years old."
When she isn't singing, Lexy enjoys dancing, shopping and hanging out with her friends. Since she is home-schooled, she does not get to see her friends as often or participate in typical high school drama. But, she admits that there are perks to her home-schooling. "I have so much more time to focus on my career."
