    Alex - Contender



    Age: 18
    Hometown: Lynn, MA

    Alex has been a performer since he was a toddler, and has been performing in amateur shows since high school. He lost his father to cancer at the age of six and finding his love for acting and singing has helped him find a way to express his emotions. Extracurricular activities such as church choir, school choir, improv club and costume design keep him extremely busy. He has tremendous range and has the ability to tackle any lead role - both male or female! Alex was one of the 34,000 people to submit an audition video for "The Glee Project" via MySpace.

    There was an article about Alex in our local paper today :-) So, given that he's from my hometown, I'm rooting for him!

    My favorite out of the bunch. I love his high energy and this kid can sing those high notes (so Broadway....love it)!

    I would love for this guy to make it into the show. Kurt would hate him because Alex is way more fabulous than he is, and Mercedes would no longer be the one with the great voice. Seriously, that guy's voice is amazing for any age, but at eighteen, it is just beyond.

    We heard him sing at various points during the show, but this was a homerun last night. I know he is still just a hometown kid who hasn't done much if anything outside of the HS. He can belt it out with perfect pitch

    I tried to LIKE the posts above. Something's not working though. I don't think it's taking.

    Anyway, my mom and I were watching last night and almost fell off our chairs!!! My mom is a wonderful singer and pretty tough on other singers, but she went crazy over Alex. I must say that I think he performed that difficult song as well as Whitney or anyone else who has done it. WOW. That kid deserves to win with that voice. Plus, he has high energy, dances well and is personable. No, he's not perfect, but he deserves a role with his voice. I hope someone gives him one. Even if he was a little snotty. LOL Personally, I think the producers are putting some people in the bottom that they want to showcase. We would never have heard that voice from Alex had he not been there.


    I get the hometown thing. Scotty from American Idol is from my home county in NC. I wasn't even going to watch AI anymore, then I saw the hometown boy and I had to support him. AND he won! Yaaaaaaaaay.

    Earlier this week, our city newspaper published a story/interview on Alex at The Daily Item: Lynner lives dream on ‘The Glee Project’.

    Great story. It' difficult to believe that he has not already been discovered. You can't hide a voice like that. Wow.

    I love his voice and just about everything about him but Alex's 'tude has got to go! I waver between whether he's a true divo or if perhaps he's reacting to how he's been treated all his life due to his being "different". Regardless, I hope we see him become more humble from here on out.
