With Glee having closed its curtains last week for good, the word on the lips of fans everywhere is what are they going to do next with their careers? And who will make it big in the world of music just like their ambitious characters hope to do. My bet’s on Alex Newell.
He first hit American screens in 2011 when he appeared on the competition show The Glee Project, where talented young hopefuls compete against one another to appear on the hit Fox show. Despite not winning, he came in second place, and appeared on the show in 2012, playing Wade Adams, a shy teenager who has a fiesty, female alter ego, Unique. Alex played a recurring role before being upped to a regular player in season 5, with an expanded role and storylines involving many trans and teen issues.
The multi talented actor and singer has a voice that slays that of anything in the charts right now, and he is quickly becoming a must have for any respectable house track.
Having been signed to Atlantic Records in late 2013, Alex has released a cover of Sigma’s Nobody to Love, and is collaborated with the hottest DJ’s and producers on the scene right now, as you can hear below.
Alex covers 90’s classic Show Me Love by Robin S, in this chilled out dance remix complete with flawless earthquake inducing vocals.
He brings down the house in this next song with an empowering fist-pumping anthem, telling the world he’s “All Cried Out”
Having had a stellar 2014, when Rather Be became an international hit, artists have been bending over backwards to work with the Grammy winning group and Alex is certainly a perfect fit for belting out some soulfl ad libs on Stronger.
It’s pretty clear listening to these future hits that Alex Newell will bring down the house so to speak, in 2015.
