It is June 10th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
This time the featured song is by a young woman I got the honour of meeting roughly a year ago.
Alexz Johnson has been a huge inspiration to me ever since she appeared as Jude Harrison on the show Instant Star. Running from 2004 to 2008, I literally grew up watching her show. And, that is why I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Alexz Johnson's song Skipping Stone is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
She may only be twenty five years old, however, she has already done so many incredible things. Before her lead role in Instant Star she appeared in a few shows, one of which being So Weird. After Instant Star, Alexz continued her acting career and made guest appearances in shows like Smallville. In 2009 she even played twins in a television movie called Stranger With My Face.
It was always evident that Alexz was truly talented, whether it be with acting or music. And, when she released her first album, titled Voodoo, on March 9th 2010 she blew away her fans even more. She even released a second album, called Reloaded, on April 26th 2011, featuring all the Voodoo album songs, just redone. Beyond that she also has three EPs available for fans, one of which being titled Skipping Stone, which was released on April 24th 2012.
Alexz Johnson's voice is something you have to hear to believe. It is truly beautiful, for a lack of a better word. For Instant Star fans we got to hear her voice throughout the series. However, her solo music takes it even further.
This Canadian woman can do it all. Whether it be acting, singing or songwriting, she was truly born to do what she does. And, that is why we are excited to award her song Skipping Stone 'Song of the Week' this week.
As if the song is not amazing enough, check out the official music video for Skipping Stone, found on her Youtube Channel, here:
