With over 1 Million subscribers and 200 Million Plays on YouTube, Alex G. is rapidly becoming well know in the music industry with fans all over the world watching her every step. She started her musical journey on YouTube, mostly singing covers of mainstream music, “Payphone” by Maroon 5 being her most popular with over 14 Million plays!

Standing apart from typical YouTube stars, Alex G. just released new debut album “Make Your Move” filled with original songs. Luckily today, a few fans who entered the contest via @DashRadio and @WhatsTrending Twitter were chosen not only watch her perform live and get interviewed but got a chance to meet her and take an unforgettable photo with her to share on their social channels.

Alex performed an original track she wrote which could be found on her new album that she says stemmed from a very personal experience. She ended the intimate performance by playing one of host Shira Lazar’s infamous “YouTube Challenges” by having one minute to perform a medley of popular songs covered in her original style which included: “All of Me” by John Legend, “Counting Stars” by One Republic, “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift and “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith. During the interview, Alex spoke candidly about the struggles of her past relationships which have inspired her music alongside revealing interesting stories about how she started off and why she posted her first video on YouTube.
