We are delighted to welcome the fabulous Alexandra Burke to Chalfest.
Alexandra rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor in 2008 and currently stands as one of the most successful winners of the show selling well over 4 million records in the UK alone.
After winning The X Factor, Alexandra released the winner’s single ‘Hallelujah’, becoming the European record holder for single sales over a period of 24 hours, selling 105,000 in one day. The song also became the top-selling single of 2008 in the UK and the UK’s Christmas number one. By January 2009, the single had sold over one million copies in the UK alone, a first for a British female soloist.
Her debut album, ‘Overcome’, debuted at number one in the UK Album Charts and spawned four number one singles
In 2010, Alexandra released Overcome: Deluxe Edition which was followed by ‘Elephant’ with Eric Morillo in February 2012, becoming a hit single, with a peak position of number three in the UK. ‘Let It Go’ served as the second single and Alexandra’s second album, Heartbreak on Hold, was released in June 2012
Alexandra has since performed as a leading lady on the West End Stage in Chess, Sister Act and is currently in a sell-out tour of The Bodyguard.
In amongst all this she has successfully toured and been a Strictly finalist.
Alexandra’s success since The X Factor is a testament to her strength and talent as one of the most distinguishable powerhouse voices in the UK
Expect all the hits and so much more …
