2. Her Mom Got Her Into Performing

There are lots of creative people whose parents had a hard time accepting the fact that they wanted to pursue a career in the arts. Luckily for Alexa, her parents were supportive from the jump. In fact, her mother was the one who got the wheels turning for Alexa’s career. Alexa told Naluda Magazine, “My mother is an actress, comedian and writer. When I was three years old, she was pregnant with my brother and had some time. She noticed that I loved playing and pretending and also that I loved to sing and dance for strangers. Well – maybe she encouraged me a little bit – we were on the roof of the Metropolitan museum and she was like – Alexa -do you want to sing your song? And I would sing and dance to some funny made up tune.”

3. She Has Behind-The-Scenes Experience

There’s no denying the fact that Alexa is a star in front of the camera, but many people don’t realize that she is equally as talented behind the scenes.

We were in Arizona on vacation and I started singing some words in the pool and my mom said – wait a minute – that’s super funny! So she got out of the pool, got her phone, and recorded two lines.
