Alexandra Burke Soars On ‘Songs Of Praise’ (A Must See!)

Pop powerhouse Alexandra Burke lived up to her billing when she rocked BBC 1’s  Songs of Praise.

The X Factor alumni blew the roof off London’s Royal Albert Hall with a stellar rendition of ‘Hallelujah’ – the Leonard Cohen cut which served as her debut single in 2008.

Check out Ms. Burke in action after the jump…

…and that, my friends, is why Alex is easily one of the UK’s best active talents. Why she’s been confined to these shores (when the US are clearly in need of more talent like her) is beyond me. Here’s hoping her horizons are allowed to expand with her new project; the lead single for which (‘Elephant’) is expected any day now.

    Power vocals. she added more texture and technique to her voice as well.

    Okay so I love Alexandra Burke. I am a total fan but her new song Elephant I have head it and I absolutely hate it. It sucks big time. Its all auto tune and does not sound like I her. I wanna hear her voice and not to mention the version of the song I heard was very short like two minutes so there isnt much substance to it either. I hope she does more song so I can hear her lovely voice and less of the auto tune

  17. Alex fan January 30, 2012

    Alex don’t need or use auto tune. If Alex was white she be in the USA Alex is great

    Alexandra Burke is the best UK singer right now. I really wish that those in the music industry with the clout accept this and give her the opportunity, instead of promoting leona lewis who is not as good as Alexandra. Anyway Alexandra is not jealous of anyone she knows that she has the talent to go far, and as she said before there is enough room in the industry for everyone. Notice in her interviews that she has never criticise anyone. And by the way Alexandra Burke is naturally pretty. Remember her audition how lovely she looked. Do not go to her sight if you do not like her music.
    Gosh you give you people silly people a computer to play with.
