Alexana Burke | Speaker Biography

Alexandra Imelda Cecelia Ewen Burke is an English pop singer, songwriter, dancer, and occasional model. She gained recognition after winning the UK version of The X Factor in 2008. Burke released her debut album "Overcome" following her victory, which included four number-one singles. Her second album, "Heartbreak on Hold," had a top three single with "Elephant," but peaked at number eighteen on the charts. After parting ways with her record label and management, Burke intends to return to her pop-R&B roots for her third studio album.

Burke's music career began with her cover of Leonard Cohen's song "Hallelujah," which served as her victory single on X Factor. She has been praised for her melismatic vocals and has been compared to Whitney Houston. Burke has also dabbled in acting, appearing in the film "Pretty Red Dress" and playing The Narrator in the London Palladium production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

In addition to her musical pursuits, Burke has been involved in endorsements and philanthropy. She posed nude for an anti-fur campaign and became the face of Nintendo DS. Burke has also recorded television advertisements for products like Sure Women deodorant and Funkin Cocktails. She established The Melissa Bell Foundation in honor of her mother, which provides disadvantaged children with access to music, dance, and drama classes at Sylvia Young Theatre School in London.

Burke has faced challenges in her personal life, including racism in the music industry. She has spoken out about industry figures asking her to bleach her skin and not have braided hair. Additionally, she has experienced bowel cancer with her former boyfriend Angus Macdonald, from whom she separated in October 2020.
