Allessandria is a sassy, young female vocalist currently acclaimed by many as ‘the freshest artist to hit the scene in years’. Don’t let her age deceive you; Allessandria is an extremely professional performer with her own unique style that others take decades to perfect. She is embraced with enigmatic vocals and a natural captivating stage presence.
Ever since Allessandria can remember, music has been a great influence in her life. From winning her first every dancing competition, to being ‘Baby Spice’ then practising the top notes of Celine Dion, singing is like breathing to her. ‘’Music is like one big family to me. There is not one specific artist that has shaped me; all of them have moulded me as a whole. Names such as Michael Jackson, Etta James, Dusty Springfield, Tina Turner, Guns’N’Roses, Emeli Sande, Nicki Minaj and Bruno Mars all come to mind. Each very different but I am a little bit like a sponge, taking snippets of the diverse range of styles’’.
Currently, Allessandria is a Semi-Finalist of Open Mic UK, which is one of the biggest talent competitions nationwide. She is also a firm favourite in the North West and has performed for Christmas Light Switch On’s, made guest appearances at radio stations and has featured in newspapers for her outstanding musical progress.
Brand new for 2014 is ‘Miss Minaj’ an outstanding vocally accurate tribute to Nicki Minaj. Bringing the outrageous wigs and renowned costumes, Allessandria delivers on all levels. ‘’This is totally exciting! I have been working immensely hard mastering the raps and dance routines. Miss Minaj is like no other, absolutely unique and the only Nicki Minaj tribute in the UK. Hopefully this will open a lot of opportunities for me’’
