Bilingual English and Spanish singer-songwriter Alexis Chapa is a young artist from South Texas. Inspired by huge pop artists such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, etc., she is determined to achieve the impossible and the show the world, that you are not defined by where you come from.
At only 14 years old, in 2013, she was accepted into a singing competition show based off of NBC's The Voice called "La Voz Kids," a Spanish version of the show. That summer, she created her demo ep called "Rise Again." Never having written a song, she learned she had a knack for it, where, she co-wrote all 7 tracks with her sister, Rita Chapa, and Midnight. In October 2013, she was featured on Stars2Come Magazine, her first interview. (http://stars2come.com/music/alexis-chapa-la-voz-kid/) In 2014, she had her first trip to Los Angeles, where she worked with producer/songwriter Damon Sharpe, and co-wrote her song "Unstoppable." It was her anti-bullying anthem that she would later use as a show favorite for anti-bullying tours around Texas. In February 2014 through the IDA Program in Miami, FL, she was able to work with Mark Hudson, Jon Secada and Pete Wallace to create "Standing in the Light," about creating your own path to who are meant to be. In Dec 2014, she participated as a background singer to Alejandra Guzman and Phil Collins in the "Little Dreams Foundation" yearly gala to help fundraise money for under-privileged kids in Miami, Florida. In 2015, she was shown as a contestant on season 14 of American Idol, and in June 2015, worked with Pj Bianco on two original songs in Los Angeles, California. In 2017, she performed her single "Eso Lo Aseguro Yo" at a pre-Latin Billboards Event in Miami, FL. She was also invited to the La Musa Awards ceremony in Miami, FL. As of May 2018, Alexis Chapa is living in Miami, Florida, launching her latest single "Soy Diferente."
Alexis dedicates her time to worthy causes and has done special performances for Tunes for Tots, Make A Wish Foundation, Be A Match Foundation, as well as Anti-Bullying rallies. She choses to donate her time to these foundations, because she relates to them. She wrote a song and made a video for a song named "Praying for a Miracle," where she donated the single and all proceeds to the Be A Match Foundation.
"I have one main goal: I want to make a difference. I want to inspire people the way my idols inspired me."
