10-YEAR-OLD Gold Coast girl Alexa was last night crowned the winner of the first season of The Voice Kids Australia.
The local girl, who was on Team Delta, won a $50,000 music scholarship and a record deal with Universal.

Following the win, Alexa said, “I want to thank my parents and my brother who have supported me throughout this journey, as well as the crew from the Voice Kids and everyone who got behind me on Team Delta.”
“I would also like to thank the Coaches for their kind feedback, and of course my angel Delta, who has been my inspiration since I was very little. I have loved your kindness and great advice.”
Alexa wowed the Coaches during her Blind Audition with her rendition of Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys. With a voice that far exceeds her young age, Alexa made all four Coaches – Mel B, Delta Goodrem, and Joel and Benji Madden of Team Madden – turn their chairs.
