Sweet Music * Alexis Munoa

Did you make it to the Bijou Market? While I was there I couldn't help but fall in love with Alexis Munoa's voice. I am a huge jazz fan. Her rich smooth voice was enchanting. I asked her a few questions about her music and her is what she had to say.

Who are your inspirations?

Growing up my dad was a huge influence on me. He is very musical and I think he gave me that love for art in general. He is the one who introduced me to Billie Holiday. She is the reason I started to love jazz.

What inspired you to start singing and how long have you been singing?

I have been singing since I was 3. I'm an early riser and one day my mom found me on the patio singing a song to the sun. She wrote the words down. I should find them and give them a new tune! Singing can connect people and that is what I love about it. Words and music together are very powerful.
What is your favorite song to sing?

" I Love You for Sentimental Reasons" by William Best and Deek Watson I heard it first by Nat "King" Cole when I was 13. I promised myself that only my future husband would get to have that song. Last August we danced to it at our wedding.
