Highlighting the most exciting musical star to emerge in the United Kingdom in many years, this account chronicles the inspiring story of soul-singing sensation Alexandra Burke. Beginning with her impoverished childhood of sharing a bed with her sister in a cramped north London flat, this examination follows the performer through countless obstacles such as the wrath of jealous classmates and the heartache of her parents’ separation at age six. Depicting her triumph over these hardships, this biography also recounts Burke’s X Factor journey, documenting her loss in the 2005 series as well as her return three years later to be crowned the winner. Providing an inspiring testimony to the rewards of perseverance, this is a compelling portrait of a natural talent who refused to give up.
