Biography

Alexa Curtis has a real passion for music and dance. She started with contemporary and jazz dancing at only 5 years old and later took up up ballet and tap dancing. In 2012 she appeared in an amateur production of Oliver! alongside her brother, Aidan, another budding singer and actor. The experience gave her a real taste of performing on stage. She has performed in the Sydney Schools Spectacular and other events supporting children’s charities.

In 2014, when Alexa was only ten years old, she captured Australia’s attention when she won The Voice Kids Australia, with Delta Goodrem as her mentor. Without having any formal vocal training she sang live in front of millions of viewers. She is now signed to Universal Music Australia and she will perform her new single, We Are for the first time at Junior Eurovision in 2016.

Outside of performing, Alexa also loves sport and still finds time to attend the young Surf Life Savers, known as ‘nippers’ at her local surf club on the Gold Coast which she has attended over the past 7 years. Recently Alexa has also started playing netball. She is excited to represent Australia and is looking forward to meeting the other Junior Eurovision participants and performing on the global stage.

Lyrics:

English

We were given the voice to speak
We were given these eyes to see
We were given a chance to choose what we believe

We were given these legs to stand
We were given these arms to fight
We were given a dream to feel alive

So if you
Feel you’re driving down a lonely road
You’re never gonna, never gonna, never gonna go alone
And if you
Feel you’re lost and you don’t belong
You will always, you will always, you will always have a home

Cos we’re
Queens of the world don’t need a crown
We’re champions just scream it out
We are, we are, we are
We’re millionaires don’t need a dollar
Dreamers in the brightest hour
We are, we are, we are

Are you tired of thinking small
Afraid that you might fall
Aren’t you tired of living life inside of the lines
There’s a yes for every no
There’s a high for every low
There’s no better time than to start here tonight

So if you
Feel you’re lost and you don’t belong
You will always, you will always, you will always have a home

Cos we’re
Queens of the world don’t need a crown
We’re champions just scream it out
We are, we are, we are
We’re millionaires don’t need a dollar
Dreamers in the brightest hour
We are, we are, we are

We are who we are
We are leaders in the dark
And we’re following the light of our hearts
And they’ll
They’ll try and break us
They’ll never change us
And they can’t take away
Who we are

Cos we’re
Queens of the world don’t need a crown
We’re champions just scream it out
We are, we are, we are
We’re millionaires don’t need a dollar
Dreamers in the brightest hour
We are, we are, we are
