Lexi Walker is a young vocalist who captivates audiences with her powerful voice. She has become an Internet sensation. She is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After winning the fifth-annual Canyons Idol vocal contest in 2013, she sang the national anthem at a Real Salt Lake soccer game. She also sang at USANA’s 2013 International Convention, the “We Are Hope” concert at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City, the Assembly Hall on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, and the Stadium of Fire in Provo, Utah. In early 2014, artist Alex Boyé featured her in his remake of “Let It Go” from the animated movie Frozen. She was only age 11 at the time. The video received around half a million views in its first day on YouTube. Since then it has been viewed more than 19 million times. The video was filmed in Midway, Utah, at the Midway Town Square Ice Castle. It also features the One Voice Children’s Choir, which consists of 120 children from around Salt Lake City. Walker is a member of that choir. On February 26, 2014, Walker was featured on ABC’s Good Morning America during a live sing-along of “Let It Go” in Times Square. Two other soloists joined Idina Menzel (the voice of the Frozen character Elsa) in singing the song, backed by the New York City Children’s Chorus. She was invited to be the first guest performer at the children’s music competition in Japan, held March 1, 2014. In June 2014, she performed at Mitt Romney’s Park City summit. She performed with David Archuleta in October 2014 to benefit Rising Star Outreach, an organization that provides medical and educational aid in leprosy colonies. She produced a Christmas music video in December 2014. She has performed at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. Walker didn’t take vocal lessons until 2013 (with Tricia Swanson), but has always been surrounded by music and loves to sing. Her grandmother taught music in public school for 30 years and worked with her in family settings. She connected with Boyé through Masa Fukuda, the director of One Voice Children’s Choir. Fukuda told Boyé, “You’ve got to take a listen to this girl. She’s a little Beyoncé, but more, and I think you will enjoy getting to know her.” Lexi and her family are from Utah.
