Biography

When you first hear Alexandra Shipp's vocals, it instantly occurs to you that her voice is a delightful mix of perfect clarity, deliciously dipped in a five-octave addictive sweetness you can't get enough of. To compliment her musical and songwriting talents, when Alexandra opens her mouth to share that same light as an actor, the effulgence only intensifies. In the third grade, she mapped out who she wanted to be when she grew up as she penned her future bio: "Someday I want to be a famous singer or I would prefer to be a movie star." Six years later, and plenty of voice lessons, acting classes, and multiple instrument lessons (thanks to MOM), at 14, she landed a top tier manager, a premier agent and began fulfilling her dream. She arrived in Hollywood permanently at age 17 and began her acting career on "Alvin & The Chipmunks - Squeaquel" and never returned to her home in Phoenix. She become a working actress amidst grounding jobs as a dog groomer and nanny; as she turned her attention to her musical and songwriting talents and began working with iconic producers Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Damon Thomas. Having studied Speech Level vocal techniques of Seth Riggs for over a decade, Alexandra wowed them with her voice and her lyrics from a soul clearly much wiser than her years. At 20, she landed a lead role for the Nickelodeon international hit show "House of Anubis". Tirelessly studying her craft and connecting deeply to her old soul center, her acting and film career took off from there. Alexandra appeared in the season two premier of the acclaimed Showtime series "Ray Donovan", as the lead in both Drumline: A New Beat and Aaliyah: Princess of R&B in 2014. She is currently working and constantly preparing for her biggest role to date: Storm in the new X-Men Movie franchise. In addition, she is working on her first album with brilliant producers SHI, Kuzzo, Ryan Toby and Logic, with a planned completion and a launch in early 2015. Born July 16, 1991 in Phoenix, Arizona, Alexandra continues to illuminate with the brilliant light God blessed her with that very day.When you first hear Alexandra Shipp's vocals, it instantly occurs to you that her voice is a delightful mix of perfect clarity, deliciously dipped in a five-octave addictive sweetness you can't get enough of.
