Last night I went to the release party for Alex Newell‘s new CD, POWER. I was ushered into Alex’s hang backstage (actually upstairs) at NYC’s No. 8 and got to snap Alex’s delight in seeing his CD for the very first time. What a sweetheart. He treated the crowd to live performances of Basically Over You and Stronger and even with not the best sound, his vocal POWER just blasts through you. He’s about to start a tour with Adam Lambert and if he comes to, or even NEAR your town, I recommend you get tickets.
Until then, here are audio tracks that you can get your weekend started with. As if it wasn’t obvious, the young star material we saw on Glee, here is an amazing voice that can sing ANYTHING and make the hair on your arms stand up. Listen.
