Like a rush of energy or a jolt of adrenaline, certain voices sweep us off our feet. Alex Newell wields such a voice. With traffic-stopping delivery, sweeping range, and wild charisma, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer, songwriter, actor, activist, and performer evokes a physical reaction every time he steps up to a microphone. Whether recording in the studio, performing on Broadway, or appearing on television, he instantly connects.

After taking the stage for the first time at a state fair at two-years-old, the Lynn, MA native devoted a lifetime to singing and performing. Millions fell in love with Newell’s voice as he brought Wade “Unique” Adams to life on Glee over the course of four seasons, offering a groundbreaking and influential depiction of one of network television’s very first transgender characters (Newell himself identifies as a gender non-conforming male). Generating over 200 million career streams thus far, he introduced a simmering and slick style on his POWER EP in 2016—which hit #4 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart and yielded the fan favorites “This Ain’t Over,” “Basically Over You (B.O.Y.) & “Nobody To Love.” He also lent his vocal prowess to several collaborations including Blonde’s “All Cried Out” and DJ Cassidy’s “Kill The Lights” with Jess Glynne and Nile Rodgers, the latter of which clinched #1 on the Billboard Dance/Club chart.

2018 saw Newell switch gears and succeed yet again. Fulfilling a formative dream to be on Broadway, he joined the Tony Award-winning revival of Once on This Island in the role of Asaka (ultimately receiving a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of Best Musical Theater Album). Now with more music on the horizon and a triumphant return to the small screen starring in NBC’s new musical drama Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, his voice is only continuing to get louder.
