About Alexandra Burke
Burke is one of six siblings and was born in Islington, where she grew up. She completed school and left after her GCSEs to pursue her interest in singing and music.

Although Burke had had no professional vocal training until The X Factor, her passion for singing was evident at the early age of five. The X Factor was not Burke’s first competition, having entered another TV talent show Star For A Night, when she was just 12!

In 2005 Burke had auditioned for the second series of The X Factor, which was won by Shayne Ward that year. At that time she was only 16. Louis Walsh did not select her in his final four as he ‘felt she was too young for the competition’.

In the 2008 series, which she finally won, Burke rose to fame steadily over the weeks of the series. Alexandra’s debut single as an independent artist, Hallelujah, was first sung on the show in the grand final episode. The final three acts during this series were Irish teenage singer Eoghan Quigg, boy band JLS, who also rose to fame following the X Factor, and finally, winner Alexandra Burke.

It was revealed that Burke had won the show with 58% of the final vote, with over eight million votes in total. The single Hallelujah went on to break the European records, becoming the first single to sell over 105,000 digital downloads in only one day! The song sold over 576,000 copies just in the first week of release and became the Christmas number one in the UK, and the biggest selling single of the year.

Overcome, Burke’s debut album, released in October 2009 to mainly positive reviews. The first official single form the album, Bad Boys, was released in early October 2009, preceding the album, and premiered on the Chris Moyle’s Show in August. It was a number one single in the UK as well as Ireland. The song features well known rapper Flo Rida.

Burke has recently signed a six figure contract with the Italian hi fashion label Dolce & Gabbana and is slated to endorse a new fashion line by the brand. Their products will also be featured in her upcoming music videos.

She was nominated for the Best UK Newcomer category for the 2009 MOBO Awards. Burke has been perceived by most critics as a promising new artist with many more good things to come yet, and her commercial success speaks an oh so similar story!
