The 14-Year-Old YouTube singing sensation Lexi Walker has just released her new EP, Wishes & Dreams. The 3 song EP features a fresh, brilliant take on two Disney classics, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella and “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio. Also featured on the album, coinciding with the 2016 Olympics, Lexi re-energizes “The Power of the Dream,” Celine Dion’s legendary opening ceremony number from the 1996 Games, with her trademark youthful power and sparkle.
“I chose these songs because I felt like they were timeless classics, something everyone can enjoy listening to,” says Lexi. “Disney music is iconic and even though there are countless covers, I wanted to share my version. The lyrics are awesome, and the arrangements by Lisle [Moore], Kendra [Lowe] and Kurt [Bestor] are equally amazing! I especially enjoyed doing ‘Power of the Dream’ – the music is so powerful, and Celine Dion is one of my favorite artists. Singing any one of these songs makes me feel like wishes and dreams really do come true!”
