My daughter loves to sing, so it was fun for us to review Wishes & Dreams, a 3-song EP from Lexi Walker 14-year-old YouTube singing sensation. It includes two Disney songs (A Dream is a Wish and When You Wish Upon a Star) and the opening ceremony song from 1996, The Power of the Dream. My daughter didn't know that one but loved the other two.
“I chose these songs because I felt like they were timeless classics, something everyone can enjoy listening to,” says Lexi. “Disney music is iconic and even though there are countless covers, I wanted to share my version. The lyrics are awesome, and the arrangements by Lisle [Moore], Kendra [Lowe] and Kurt [Bestor] are equally amazing! I especially enjoyed doing ‘Power of the Dream’ - the music is so powerful, and Celine Dion is one of my favorite artists. Singing any one of these songs makes me feel like wishes and dreams really do come true!”
She's got a fun voice with a youthful energy, and I hope she keeps singing with that great unbridled spirit!
Lexi starred in a video of “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen with Alex Boyé and the One Voice Children's Choir, which has garnered nearly 80 million views! She has appeared on America’s Got Talent, Good Morning America, Disney’s Frozen Christmas Celebration and The Queen Latifah Show; and sung with The Piano Guys, Kristin Chenoweth, Lindsey Stirling, David Archuleta, Jenny Oaks Baker, the Lyceum Philharmonic, and the Fairfax Symphony.
