At the ripe age of ten she won The Voice Kids Australia, wowing the country with her unique take on power ballads like “Hero” from Mariah Carey.
And on Friday 12-year-old Alexa Curtis proved she’s still got that winner’s drive in her as she revealed her stunning Junior Eurovision 2016 song “We Are”.
The three-minute pop song is an ode to perseverance, encouraging listeners to keep on slaying when the slaying gets tough, and comes with a polished music video, which appears to have been filmed on the same hill where Eurovision 2016 act Dami Im filmed her video for “Superlove”.
In the song, Alexa offers a message of support and unity to anyone feeling like they’re struggling on their own, “If you feel you’re lost and you don’t belong, you will always have a home.”
She’s all about making people feel good, reminding listeners that “We’re queens of the world, don’t need a crown.” The uplifting lyrics could work as a motivational song for anyone about to go into a tough competition — just like Junior Eurovision!
Australia's #jesc2016 contestant Alexa Curtis has released "We Are" — her track for #junioreurovision. Co-written by @taniadoko and @alitamposi (the genius behind Kelly Clarkson's Stronger), it's an inspiring ballad about perseverance. Alexa looks AMAZING in every shot as she sways and encourages us to know we are QUEENS even without the crown! ??? #JESC #SBS #sbsaustralia #sbseurovision #alexacurtis #embrace
The music video puts Alexa in a number of settings, including a recording studio, a glitzy stairwell and a scenic balcony.
It shows that Alexa knows how to work the camera and should have no trouble slaying in Valletta.
Earlier in the day lil’ Miss Alexa once again showed poise beyond her years as she appeared on Australia’s popular morning show Today to discuss Junior Eurovision and her life since winning The Voice.
She’s keen to see all the sites in Malta, and she’s going to spend some time in Dubai before headed to Valletta.
The well-rounded teen made it clear there’s much more to her day-to-day than singing.
“I do surf lifesaving — nippers — at the Gold Coast,” she says. “That’s really fun, you get to go in the water!”

“It’s awesome. I can be a normal kid as well and go to school and do what other normal kids do. The singing, that’s just a little different from other people.”
Proving she’s much more than a singer, she made it clear she wants to experience life fully and co
“To be honest I don’t really know what I want to do. Of course I love singing but at a young age I can try other things, do other hobbies, and find where I feel comfortable.”
