Popular music app StarMaker has made one musician’s dreams come true with the help of YouTube musician Corey Gray and Alexi Blue.
The two creators handpicked Alex Hobbs as the winner of their “Sing with Corey Gray and Alexi Blue” contest sponsored by Keep Your Soul Records. Alex stunned the duo with his soulful cover of Gray’s single “Step Away” which he created using the StarMaker app.
For his amazing performance, Alex wins a much coveted professional recording session with fellow musician and producer Jake Coco, the founder of Keep Your Soul Records. Coco spoke fondly of the amazing vocalists who entered the StarMaker contest, stating, “I was overwhelmed by the amount of talented singers that entered the StarMaker contest. Picking a winner was definitely not an easy task, but at the end of the day Alex Hobbs had an honesty in his voice that left me feeling like I NEEDED to hear more from him.”
While Alex took the grand prize, his runner-up Jackie Junta was a close second with her cover of Blue’s single “Wild Heart.”
This isn’t the first time StarMaker has helped jumpstart someone’s music career. In the past they’ve flow winners of their competitions out to shoot music videos, sing with their favorite bands, and even perform on stage with other artists at Playlist Live in Orlando.
Our heartfelt congratulations to both Alex and Jackie, well done!
