My name is Alexis Chapa, and I am a young singer/songwriter from Texas. I am a huge fan of pop artists such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, etc. I am determined to achieve the impossible and the show other people that they to can do it as well. I sing English pop music.
I was raised in Sullivan City, Texas. Nothing big about it except that it's right on the South tip, near the Mexican border. Where I come from, you're basically told to receive an education because your dreams can't come true, since it's "impossible."
At 14, in 2013. I was accepted into a singing competition show based off of NBC's The Voice called "La Voz Kids." Basically, it was a Spanish version of the show. When I didn't make it to the live shows, I went into a full-on working mode and spent the whole summer creating my demo ep called "Rise Again." I got my first take on songwriting, where I co-wrote all 7 tracks with my sister, Rita Chapa,and a young man professionally known as Midnight. The year 2013 finished with constant shows all around Texas.
In October 2013, I was featured on Stars2Come Magazine. To my surprise, with that story, I was interviewed live on a couple of radio stations, and I got the attention of my manager Jeff Gorden. (http://stars2come.com/music/alexis-chapa-la-voz-kid/)
2014 was amazing. With the help of my manager, I was able to work with amazing people such as producer/songwriter Damon Sharpe and his partner Eric Sinacola in Hollywood CA, where we co-wrote my song "Unstoppable." This song talks about getting your big shot and surprising everyone who ever doubted you.
In February 2014 through the IDA Program in Miami FL, I was able to work with Mark Hudson, Jon Secada and Pete Wallace to create a great song called "Standing in the Light," it's about not letting your peers define you and creating your own path to who and what you want to be.

In June 2014, I had the honor of working with L.A. producer Isaac Hasson, together we wrote my single "PrimeTime." This single will be released very soon.
In Dec 2015, I 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 Jan 2015, I was shown as a contestant on season 14 of American Idol. I got a yes from all three judges, and made it to Hollywood week.
In Feb 2015- Feb 2016, I started working with Miami producer Marthin Chan on several original demos. This project is still being worked on, and these demos are a mixture of both English & Spanish Pop.
In March 2015, I worked with a producer in Atlanta who goes by Ferrel "Ensayne" Wayne. We recorded four demos, and two of them tracked by guitarist Eric Gales.
In June 2015, I had the honor to work with Pj Bianco on two original songs in Los Angeles, California. This project is also still being worked on.
2016 was another blessed year for me. I focused on doing anti-bullying tours, which we did more than 30 schools in the Rio Grande Valley. I also focused on writing and recording more original music.
2017 was an awesome year. I kicked off the year with showcasing one of my original singles at a pre-Latin Billboards Event in Miami FL. I was also invited to the La Musa Award ceremony In Miami FL, such a great honor to be among such great songwriters. It was a breath taking experience.
I've done special performances for Tunes for Tots, Make A Wish Foundation, Be A Match Foundation, and Anti-Bullying rallies. I donate my time to these foundations cause in one way or another I relate to them and they mean so much to me. I wrote a song and made a video for a song named "Praying for a Miracle." I donated the single and all proceeds to the Be A Match Foundation. This song will be presented to Be A Match Foundation at their yearly meeting in San Antonio TX.
I have one main goal: I want to make a difference. I can perform in front of 15,000 people, but as long as I make at least one person feel inspired, then I know I made a difference. I want to inspire people the way my idols inspired me. To contact me, please check out my facebook, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
