Alexan­dra rose to fame after win­ning the fifth series of The X Fac­tor in 2008. She cur­rently stands as one of the most suc­cess­ful win­ners of the show, sell­ing well over four mil­lion records in the UK alone. After win­ning The X Fac­tor, Alexan­dra re­leased the win­ner’s sin­gle Hal­lelu­jah, which be­came the cur­rent Euro­pean record holder for sin­gle sales over a pe­riod of 24 hours, sell­ing 105,000 in one day. The song also be­came the top-sell­ing sin­gle of 2008 in the UK and the UK’s Christ­mas num­ber one. By Jan­uary 2009, the sin­gle had sold more than one mil­lion copies in the UK alone, a first for a Bri­tish fe­male soloist. “It’s been a long time, but it’s been great and I haven’t stopped work­ing since,” Alexan­dra says. “I feel grate­ful that I’ve been able to keep work­ing and do what I love to do. For eight years solid I’ve not stopped.”
