Norway’s very own Eurovision song contest entrant for 2023 has announced her Irish debut. Headlining The Academy on February 19th, Alessandra will fill the intimate space with her powerful vocals.
After appearing in the Norwegian version of The Voice, Alessandra quickly gained notoriety for her versatility as a performer. After reaching the live shows in the Voice Alessandra impressed the masses. In January 2023 Alessandra competed in the Melodi Grand Prix, and was selected to represent Norway in the 2023 Eurovision.
Alessandra’s debut single “Queen of Kings” has racked up an impressive 25 million streams. Co-written by Alessandra, this dynamic song tells the importance of self-love and urges listeners to find their inner power. Proving that her vocals are a force to be reckoned with, the climax of “Queen of Kings” features an impressive whistle note.
Alessandra has many plans set in place post-Eurovision. She has gained a huge following on TikTok and has been using this to tease her new song “Pretty Devil”. Alessandra is planning to release this song after the Eurovision.
At just 20 years old, Alessandra – a half Norwegian, half Italian singer and songwriter – has captivated her audience with her strong vocal technique and star power.
A passion for music has always burned inside of the young superstar. Since winning her very first song contest at just 6 years old, Alessandra has known that the stage is where she thrives and feels at home. Her desire to write and perform eventually brought her to her second home, Norway.
«I’ve always felt music in a very special way. A chord progression or a specific note can make me cry cause I feel it so intensely. So when I write songs, there is a lot of passion and thoughts put into it. I also like to combine Norwegian and Italian culture. We tend to look at life differently, so I like to mix the two different cultural perspectives together and see where it takes me.»
One of Alessandra’s biggest aspirations in life is to spread the message of self-love. A topic so close to her heart that she feels it should be taught in school. With the intention of inspiring others to be confident and kind to themselves, the euphoric self-love anthem Queen of Kings was written.
«Why isn’t self-love taught in school? People go to therapy to learn how to practice self-love, so to me it’s mad that it’s not part of the school curriculum. I want to use my music to spread the message of loving yourself and finding your confidence, but I want it to be said in a fun and sassy way. I hope to be a role model that inspires others to love themselves and maybe one day might contribute to making self-love a part of the curriculum.»
It didn’t take long for Alessandra to become a Norwegian household name with the release of her empowering debut single; which has already surpassed an astonishing 55 million streams across platforms.
The song also had a rise in popularity after it went viral on TikTok - where it has generated millions of likes and over 250 million views and counting.
With a hit debut single in her hands, Alessandra solidified her worthiness of a superstar title while performing the song during the national finals. Her powerful vocal performance combined with an extraordinary stage presence and charisma results in a performance that oozes of confidence and star quality comparable to industry giants such as Lizzo and Ariana Grande. Alessandra is here to stay, and she wants to inspire listeners of all ages and genders to embody their inner Queen of Kings.
