Teen actress Alexa Ilacad is more than just a pretty face. With a blossoming acting career and armed with singing talent, she is ready to dive into a new territory as Star Music’s newest pop rock artist.
Alexa, who considers singing her passion, got a taste of performing when she joined reality music competition “We Love OPM” and has been in love with it ever since.
“Their first reaction was: Aren’t you an actress? Later on, they said that I was a revelation. I also realized that I love performing, especially with a live band. When the show ended, I truly missed singing and performing on stage,” she shared.
With the release of her debut album “To the Moon & Back” under Star Music, Alexa feels “grateful and blessed.”
“Now I’m happier because I get to sing my own songs, and they are more personal,” she said.
“To the Moon & Back” contains the spunky carrier single “Pakipot, Suplado,” whose Kean Cipriano-directed music video was recently unveiled to the delight of her fans. It has also proven to be a hit because it has consistently charted in MOR 101.9’s “Biga10” list for weeks now.
Alexa is also proud to share that all the songs in her album are original and were written by Eunice Jorge, the vocalist of rock band Gracenote, one of her musical influences. These songs are “Not Too Young,” “Kung Pwede Lang,” “Kahit Saan, Kahit Kailan,” “Dream Boat,” and “Puso.”
“Whoever listens to my songs will be blown away by how well-written they are. My fans are used to seeing me as an actress playing sweet or dramatic roles. In my album, I get to showcase my pop rock side – ‘yung ako talaga!” said Alexa.
The album also features her love team partner Nash Aguas, who sings with her on the acoustic version of “Kahit Saan, Kahit Kailan.”
“To the Moon & Back,” produced by Rye Sarmiento and Darwin Hernandez, can now be streamed on Spotify and is now available at all record bars nationwide for only P199. Digital tracks can also be downloaded via online music stores such as ABS-CBN Store, iTunes, Mymusicstore.com.ph, Amazon.com, OneMusic.ph, and Starmusic.ph.

ALEXA ILACAD, PINAKABAGONG POP ROCK ARTIST NG STAR MUSIC
Hindi lang pag-arte ang kayang ipakita ng teen actress na si Alexa Ilacad. Gamit ang kanyang angking talento sa pagkanta, handa na niyang tahakin ang susunod na kabanata sa kanyang career bilang ang pinakabagong pop rock artist ng Star Music.
Ayon sa kanya, matagal na niyang passion ang pagkanta. Una rin siyang sumabak sa pagpe-perform sa reality music competition na “We Love OPM” at lubos na nagustuhan ito.
“’Yung first reaction nila: ‘Di ba artista ka? Later on, sabi nila na revelation daw ako. Na-realize ko rin na ang sarap pala talaga magperform, especially with a live band. When the show ended sobra kong na-miss yung pagkanta and pag-perform on stage,” she shared.
Kaya naman “grateful at blessed” ang pakiramdam ni Alexa ngayong nai-release na ang debut album niyang “To the Moon & Back.”
“Mas masaya ako ngayon na kinakanta ko na ang mga sarili kong kanta, naging more personal pa,” aniya.
Laman ng “To the Moon & Back” ang carrier single na “Pakipot, Suplado,” na ang music video ay idinirek pa ng Callalily vocalist at aktor na si Kean Cipriano. Certified hit na rin ito dahil ilang linggo na itong nananatili sa “Biga10” ng MOR 101.9.
Proud din si Alexa dahil orihinal ang lahat ng awitin sa kanyang album na isinulat ni Eunice Jorge, ang vocalist ng rock band na Gracenote, na siyang isa sa kanyang musical influences. Ang mga kantang ito ay “Not Too Young,” “Kung Pwede Lang,” “Kahit Saan, Kahit Kailan,” “Dream Boat,” at “Puso.”
“Whoever listens to my songs will be blown away by how well-written they are. Sanay ang fans ko na mapanood akong umaarte sa mga sweet o dramatic roles. Sa album ko, naipapakita ko ang pop rock side ko – ‘yung ako talaga!” saad ni Alexa.
Ang album ay ipinrodus ni Rye Sarmiento at Darwin Hernandez. Mapapakinggan na ito sa Spotify at mabibili na rin nationwide soon sa halagang P199. Ang digital tracks naman ay maaaring i-download sa online music stores gaya ng ABS-CBN Store, iTunes, Mymusicstore.com.ph, Amazon.com, OneMusic.ph, at Starmusic.ph.
