I grew up in a very musical family and started playing guitar & singing at a very young age. I’ve played many different styles and venues ranging from churches to NYC halls. Performing music is something that I am very passionate about and I always give it my all. Nothing makes me happier than seeing people smile and enjoy themselves from a great performance.

AlexaAlexa Pantaleo – Vocals

I’m 18 years old and I’m from Freehold New Jersey. I’ve been singing for the past 10 years and I could never imagine dedicating myself to anything else. I love to share my voice whenever I get the chance whether it’s somewhere local or hours away. I have sung for Hurricane Sandy benefits and raised an amazing amount of money. I also sang the national anthem for the Blue Claws! However my biggest accomplishment was over the summer I was so blessed to have made it to the blind auditions of The Voice! I’m always trying out for new things so maybe one day my hard work will pay off!  Little Rockers is the best job I could ask for. I get to sing all day and play with the cutest kids! It has brought me out of my shell and taught me, that no matter what age you are, that fun loving kid will always be inside you! I’m so thankful to be on the team with Little Rockers!

A funny story from class was probably when one of the little girls was so sad that Liam wasn’t there, that she actually had to leave class!! It’s crazy how attached kids get to their teachers!
