Alexandra Burke // Mencap's Little Sound Sessions in London

British singer Alexandra Burke took the stage Tuesday night (Nov 17) at the Union Chapel in London, England to perform for Mencap’s Little Sound Sessions before fielding questions from the press.

The 21-year-old X Factor champ revealed that she won’t be waiting 3 years to tour like her predecessor Leona Lewis, who just here recently announced that she’ll be going on tour in the spring. Alex says she won’t be waiting that long, and she and her management are already working on something!

“I definitely won’t take as long as Leona. There’s something in the pipeline already for sure. My management were very happy with my performance tonight. They were like ‘you know what, you just proved something to us.’ Performing is what I’m about and doing it for such a special cause in my hometown is inspiring.”

Burke also said she enjoys working with people she feels comfortable with.

“My two backing vocalists are good friends of mine from back in the old days. I’ve known Shaun and Dave since I was 17. It’s important to work with people you can blend with and I feel more comfort-able with them on stage, so keeping my family close to me will be major.”
