First performance of 2022 and she already slayed it. 💅
Alexa Ilacad—actress, dancer, emerging pop star, and real life Bobbie Salazar, she just has it all. Fresh from the PBB house, the rest of the world isn’t ready for what she’s about to bring to the table. Remember when she trended last year for finishing college with a flat uno GWA?
Very recently, Alexa welcomed the year with her comeback performance on ASAP Live and she did not hold back. She brought the house down with one of OPM’s most unforgettable songs, Sana’y Walang Wakas by Sharon Cuneta along with the new generation of biriteras. The video alone has already racked up more than 290K views (and counting), and it’s only been two days. Now, if Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift had a baby, it would probably be Alexa Ilacad. See how her powerful vocal range stands out every single time? Read on below for 7 of her performances that prove she’s about to be a pop star soon enough.
1. ALEXA’S THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY COVER THAT GOT 3.2M VIEWS
An oldie but goodie, Alexa Ilacad made a cover of Katy Perry’s 2010 hit song The One That Got Away that garnered 3.2 million views on her YouTube channel. Her pop-rock voice combined with dreamy riffs left us breathless.
2. BREAK MY HEART BY DUA LIPA
Have we already mentioned that Alexa’s the next big thing? Well, she’s already been making waves for her music since her I Love OPM days in 2016 along with Ylona Garcia. Her Break My Heart cover was enough to get us up on our feet and text our ex back. Oops.
3. MY HEART BY PARAMORE COVER WITH EUNICE JORGE
This one’s for all the kids who sung their hearts out to Paramore with studded belts busted out. Of course with a pop rock voice like Alexa Ilacad’s, it’s hard not to sing any song by the legendary band. Fun fact: Eunice Jorge of Gracenote also sung this cover during Alexa’s 17th birthday. We love a full circle moment.
4. HER COVER OF MIGRAINE BY MOONSTAR88
Before releasing new music in 2020, Alexa Ilacad was determined to let everyone know that she had the music skills aside from being an excellent actress. And boy, was she right especially with her Moonstar88 cover of Migraine years ago.
5. ALEXA’S SINGLE KUNG PWEDE LANG
Yep, she’s a total package. She sings, writes her own songs, and plays the guitar. Can we also talk about her hot pink highlights? Here’s to hoping she drops more music ASAP.
6. WHEN SHE PERFORMED HER ORIGINAL SONGS ON PBB
During her stay inside the PBB house, Alexa Ilacad not only showed her strong personality, but she also performed a number of her original songs. She even composed and performed a track she dedicated to her fellow housemates. So, when are we getting another album, Alexa?
7. WHEN ALEXA SOUNDED LIKE TAYLOR SWIFT IN HER ALL TOO WELL COVER
Was this really a cover or was it Taylor Swift we were hearing? Alexa Ilacad can do country music, too! Even the Swifties loved her rendition of the song, no wonder it got 1.3 million views. Best believe hearing this cover again gave us some flashbacks that were once hidden in plain sight. *Sobs*
