Recommendation: Alex Parks

A reader recommends…

Alex Parks

Just in case you missed her in high school, check out this English singer-songwriter with amazing vocal talents. When she was 19 she won a national TV talent contest (in the U.K. that is). For a butch, out-lesbian in the early 2000s this was quite a statement.

    Random fact: She went to the same primary school as me. And she’s given speeches at my secondary school before. She always says really inspirational stuff. :)

    I totally just received her first CD from my sister, and I love it!

    I used to date a girl who looked just like her. People used to come up to us in bars to ask for her autograph. Fact for the day :)

    Apart from me, it seems. XD
    I’m quite tempted to get a tshirt like hers, with that on.

    I’m the same age as her, and I remember when she became big – it was so great to see someone who looked kind of like me back then. she was tremendously shy as well, which was very cute, and she’s got a great voice as well!

    I had such a crush on her before I realised I was crushing on girls :)

    What is Alex doing now? I bought both her albums when she was recording after winning Fame Academy. She is hugely talented and I loved her energy and genuineness. Hope she is still making music somewhere even if she has disappeared out of the limelight.
