For more than eight years Alexandra Burke has been delivering jaw-dropping performances to the masses – a trajectory that shows no signs of slowing.
The singer, who has been starring in UK adaptation of ‘The Bodyguard Musical’ for the last year, took to the stage at the BBC Proms In The Park this weekend, where she tackled the centrepiece song from the production – ‘I Will Always Love You’.
With Whitney Houston‘s rendition still serving as the definitive vocal masterclass, did Ms. Burke pass the test? Watch below to get in the know…
Bellissima! Beautiful performance!
Saying that, watching this has us salivating for new Alexandra material. And, no, not free EP’s. An actual album.
It’s anyone’s guess what the climate is like for her on the major label front, but we’d love to see one of them scoop her up, help her cultivate a current and commercially viable sound, and push it to the heavens.
Because, while it’s great to see her hustling to keep her name out there, her absence away from the charts (sorry, free music doesn’t count) ultimately translates as an absence from the minds of the masses. Appeasing fans is absolutely important, but so is attracting the casual listener, who make-up the majority of the record-buying public. Just our two cents.
