I recently had an opportunity to meet an incredible young singer here in sunny LA. Of course, I had to interview her. Alexis’ journey, talents, and dreams are incredible and her abilities are incredibly inspiring. Here’s what she had to say…
What inspired you to start singing?
I was inspired to sing by going to an Alicia Keys concert at four years old. Seeing Alicia Keys on stage made me fall in love with performing. The fans were amazing, the music sounded great, she looked beautiful, and I felt her energy. I want other people to feel that same energy when I sing. Also, I am inspired by my feelings to write and sing songs. Whatever I feel, I just write and sing about it.
Who inspires you the most?
My vision board really inspires me to be the best. I have singers on there such as: Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, The Beatles etc. I have pictures of awards that I would like to win on my board, professional teams I would like to sing for, Interviewers that I would love to sit down and interview with, places I want to travel, and other goals I see myself accomplishing.
What are your goals for the future?
My goal for the immediate future is to record an album in the studio. My long term goals are to continue my training, become the best singer/songwriter in the world, inspire others to live their best life, make songs that will be the soundtrack of my fans lives, have a charity to help children in need, and to become a movie star.
What is one of your favorite memories?
My favorite memories involve my three little sisters. We sing together every day all day. We really love getting together and singing for Christmas and all of our family come over to watch us.
If you could perform anywhere, where would you choose?
If I could perform anywhere, it would be live on America’s Got Talent. I would love to perform on that show. It’s been a dream of mine for years to perform on National Television in front of the world.
How do you juggle your career, school, and life?
It’s really hard juggling my career, school , and life. I do not have a lot of free time to myself. I have to stick to a schedule in order to get task completed. Also, I make singing and everything that I do fun.
How old were you when you discovered your passion and talent for singing?
I discovered my love for dancing at two years old. I discovered my passion for singing at four years old. I began making songs at four and putting on shows for my family shortly after.
What would you say to inspire others follow their dreams as well?
I would tell anyone who is pursing their dreams to push past their fears and step into greatness.
I want to say thank you so much again to Alexis for letting me interview you and for you readers, I hope that this post inspired you since it definitely inspired me.
Stay Inspired & Follow Your Dreams!
