AleXa is originally from Jenks, Oklahoma. She took part in Korea’s Produce 48 show and ever since, most of her music has been bilingual, in Korean and English. Alexandra Christine Schneiderman, as her real name is, has now moved to Korea to pursue a career there.
The American Song Contest entry “Wonderland” is co-written by Cazzi Opeia, who this year took part in Melodifestivalen, Sweden’s national selection for Eurovision Song Contest with the song “I Can’t Get Enough”.
The American Song Contest premieres on March 21 and will air for eight weeks on (local) Monday nights. Atlantic Records will publish the songs at midnight during each week. With 56 competitors in three qualifying rounds, each show will consist of 18 or 19 entries. Following the qualifiers, we’ll see the semifinals and the Grande Finale. There, one state or territory will receive the crown of Best Hit Song at the inaugural American Song Contest.
