Oklahoma-born K-pop soloist AleXa is set to perform in her home state and seven other stops on her upcoming U.S. tour.
The ZB label artist will start in Jersey City, New Jersey, on Oct. 18 before venturing to Puerto Rico on Oct. 20, Atlanta on Oct. 22, Chicago on Oct. 23, Oklahoma City on Oct. 25, Houston on Oct. 27, San Francisco on Oct. 28 and Los Angeles on Oct. 30.
It is fitting that AleXa is touring across the country after winning the inaugural season of “American Song Contest” back in May. The show’s premise was inspired by “Eurovision” and had artists representing each state and U.S. territory impress a 56-person jury and compete for America’s votes.
AleXa ultimately won with “Wonderland,” an original song she and her team created for the competition.
A clip of her following her win went viral as the trophy she was given broke within mere moments.
Prior to her crowning victory, she spoke to NextShark over Zoom to discuss what winning as an American-born K-pop artist would mean to her.
Before “American Song Contest,” she released her single “Tattoo” in January. She officially debuted as a solo artist with her hit track “Bomb” in 2019 and gained popularity after winning Soompi’s online singing competition “Rising Legends” in 2016 and participating in Mnet’s “Produce 48” in 2018.
