         'From Mr. Al Hoffman'
My wife and I have followed Alexandra Lewis, or as she is affectionately known, "Alex", for the past several years. We cannot understand why she has not been discovered !  

This writer is a devout music lover. To me music is the essence of life and when played or sung by an unusually talented musician, orchestra or vocalist, I find myself, and I have to believe many others do also, in an aura of soothing, calming and joyful pleasure.  

The most unusual aspect of this lovely young ladies talent is her versatility. She can restore the fading American Song book that
has been gradually replaced by Do-Wop, Bee Bop, Rap and whatever else. Then, she suddenly becomes a jazz artist!  Her range is truly incredible and one of the traits we find most enjoyable is her
inimitable delivery.  

Alex is a star waiting to be discovered, and she will be!  We have all watched and enjoyed America
Has Talent;England Has Talent and I even watch Australia Has Talent. These shows, on occasion do have rare talent such as Susan Boyle who after performing and being recognized, ride their ascending star high into the sky.  

At the risk of sounding bias, I have not seen or heard one vocalist who in my humble opinion enjoys all the gifts Alexandra was given.  


She truly is unique!!

Bio

Alexandra Lewis is a gifted singer of enormous talent and originality. Her vocal style though truly contemporary, is at the same time reminiscent of the great singers of yesteryear.   Multi-toned and unquestionably unique, her vocal range, interpretation and delivery of a song, keeps her audiences engaged and completely entertained.

Alexandra’s extensive repertoire encompasses almost every genre of music, including the Great American Songbook;  classic songs by the Gershwin’s, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael to an emotional,  powerful heart-wrenching ‘Somewhere’ from Leonard Bernstein’s ‘West Side Story’.  You will also hear powerhouse contemporary hits of today and songs that have propelled female singers to stardom and fame like Whitney Houston and Celine Dion.  Her instinctive feel and inborn timing for jazz is evident when she scats her way through her version of ‘Summertime’

Alexandra’s 45 minutes plus sets may include legendary songs like ‘Evergreen’, and ‘The Prayer’ which she sings both in Italian and English.  Her soulful ‘Hallelujah’ by the great Leonard Cohen can bring an audience to tears and by request, she often closes her show with an amazing rendition of the aria ‘Nessum Dorma’  that underscores the power and vitality of her incredible voice and vocal range.



A little more about Alex

The cliché ‘born in a trunk’ certainly seems appropriate when applied to Alexandra Lewis. Born in Manchester, England she moved at age 13, to the States with her family. Her father was a prominent artist’s manager, theater, TV and concert producer/promoter in Europe for many years. Alexandra as a child was exposed to all genres of music from an early age. Her dad took her to the band rehearsals of the many legendary stars he toured – Charles Aznavour, Sarah Vaughan, Andy Williams, Michael Jackson, Michel Legrand, Smoky Robinson, BB King, Jack Jones, Barry Manilow, Tom Jones, and Englebert Humperdinck to name but a few.

She even danced and sang - well out of sight of the audience and performers - upstage behind the scrim curtain with a make-believe microphone in her small hand as the artists performed on theater stage.

Music and theater is in her DNA. At school in England she was passionately immersed in drama, dance and musical theater, often taking the lead roles in amateur productions. With the culture-shock of arriving in America, it did not take too long before Alexandra was asked to join the high school choir and take her place in cheerleading team. She also modeled professional for both photographic and runway events when she was just 15.

Alexandra, who is equally at home fronting her own musicians or singing to tracks, made her Florida debut at Hoot, Toot and Whistle, a small restaurant by the railroad tracks on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. Almost at once she drew a devoted and still loyal following. She became a hit locally, with numerous engagements in many restaurants and prestigious hotels in South Florida.

Notable venues include appearances at the Members Club at Donald Trump’s, Mar-a-Lago Club,  The Boca Raton Hotel and Resort, Waterstone Hotel, the Van Dyke Café Jazz Club, and at the Loews Hotel in Miami Beach. She has rocked it out on the concert stage performing with a Classic Rock tribute band in at the Mizner Park Amphitheater, played repeat dates and enjoyed full seasonal engagements at many Country Clubs and performed at a multitude of private events.  

Alexandra still finds time to be engaged in the local community. As well as annually performing for the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce events, She has been involved with many charities; including Red Cross, The Florida Chapter for Cystic Fibrosis and for the past 5 years she has been the entertainer of choice for the ‘Caribbean Cowboy Ball’ and ‘Boca’s Ballroom Battle’, annual fundraising events to aid the George Snow Scholarship Fund.  She has been invited to sing the National Anthem for both the Republican and Democratic Conventions.

She remembers with great pride and affection singing ‘Over the Rainbow’ a cappella, for the children of the ARC Foundation of Palm Beach County which provides quality services, education and advocacy for children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families.  

Alexandra considers her greatest achievements in life to be her children.  Donny, 15 whom has Asperger’s syndrome,  Mario, 13 born with Multiple Epiphyseal Dysplasia whom has  undergone 7 surgeries to date on his legs bravely undertaken without complaint(Clever and talented they are both strong and full of life. “They are my world”...)
and newest member of the family "BABY JAMES" born July 16, 2015  - she balances her busy life between raising her children and her love for performing live before an audience.
