Teen actress Alexa Ilacad is more than just a pretty face. With a blossoming acting career and armed with singing talent, she is ready to dive into a new territory as Star Music’s newest pop rock artist.
Alexa, who considers singing her passion, got a taste of performing when she joined reality music competition “We Love OPM” and has been in love with it ever since.
“Their first reaction was: Aren’t you an actress? Later on, they said that I was a revelation. I also realized that I love performing, especially with a live band. When the show ended, I truly missed singing and performing on stage,” she shared.
With the release of her debut album “To the Moon & Back” under Star Music, Alexa feels “grateful and blessed.”
“Now I'm happier because I get to sing my own songs, and they are more personal,” she said.
“To the Moon & Back” contains the spunky carrier single “Pakipot, Suplado,” whose Kean Cipriano-directed music video was recently unveiled to the delight of her fans. It has also proven to be a hit because it has consistently charted in MOR 101.9’s “Biga10” list for weeks now.
Alexa is also proud to share that all the songs in her album are original and were written by Eunice Jorge, the vocalist of rock band Gracenote, one of her musical influences. These songs are “Not Too Young,” “Kung Pwede Lang,” “Kahit Saan, Kahit Kailan,” “Dream Boat,” and “Puso.”
“Whoever listens to my songs will be blown away by how well-written they are. My fans are used to seeing me as an actress playing sweet or dramatic roles. In my album, I get to showcase my pop rock side – ‘yung ako talaga!” said Alexa.
The album also features her love team partner Nash Aguas, who sings with her on the acoustic version of “Kahit Saan, Kahit Kailan.”
“To the Moon & Back,” produced by Rye Sarmiento and Darwin Hernandez, can now be streamed on Spotify and is now available at all record bars nationwide for only P199. Digital tracks can also be downloaded via online music stores such as ABS-CBN Store, iTunes, Mymusicstore.com.ph, Amazon.com, OneMusic.ph, and Starmusic.ph.
