20-year-old Alessandra Mele is a Norwegian-Italian artist and songwriter, who has spent most of her life in Italy. She decided to move to Norway after finishing high school two years ago to get more in-touch with her Norwegian family and further develop her career in music.

As a child, Alessandra began singing, dancing and cooking with her mother to the sounds of Frank Sinatra. Already at the age of 6, she participated in her first singing competition and won with the ABBA classic “Dancing Queen”. It turned out that Alessandra loved being on stage, which was the only place she could be herself. She took part in the Norwegian The Voice in 2022, where she received a lot of praise for her unique voice. She now lives in Lillehammer and studies at the music school LIMPI.

Alesssandra says:

Anyone can be Queen of Kings. The Queen of Kings is someone who believes in herself and doesn’t care about other people’s opinions. The person has gone through a lot, but in the end has managed to come out victorious with new lessons learned.
