She's Cute, She's Sweet, She's Definitely Sassy And She's Doing It 'cause She Feels Like It"

ALEXA is bringing it to the radio, your IPod and a dance floor near you with the global launch of her debut single "CAUSE WE FEEL LIKE IT", December 3, 2012.

ALEXA officially broke onto the scene summer 2012 with her first single, "Cause We Feel Like It", when fashion designer Indashio (Winner of VH1's Glam God), overheard a sample of the song. Indashio immediately approached Alexa to be his "IT GIRL" and chose "Cause We Feel Like it" as the anthem for his Spring / Summer 2013 American Dream collection.

"Cause We Feel Like It", ALEXA's rebel yell, is representative of her summer before starting college and her leap into the music industry. "Cause We Feel Like It" is full of energy, a feel good vibe and guaranteed to bring the fun (the song features out of the box radio, electro house, dance electronica & dub step variations).

"I am so excited to release 'Cause We Feel Like It' to the public. Everyone who has heard it during the developmental stages gave such great feedback and positive energy. It has been a great experience and I look forward to the next steps!!" ALEXA.

"ALEXA's journey toward success has begun; she's proven herself a winner in all areas tasked. She rises to every occasion and meets her challenges with grace, enthusiasm and an unrelenting attitude to win......" states Tony Prendatt-Carter. "As a 35 year music industry veteran I've worked extensively with continuing & developing talent, accruing 5 Grammy Award nominations and 3 wins as an engineer & producer including 2 for Album of the Year. I take great pride in scouting, recruiting and developing gifted young people. Alexa is one of those gifts - I am very excited about Alexa and her potential for world acceptance and success......."

Produced by Pavel Bez, Team Whooopiii and 3x Grammy Producer Tony Prendatt-Carter, "Cause We Feel Like It" will be available digitally through itunes and other digital music outlets. Fans can check out the action from behind the scenes as well as updates on her forthcoming EP at
