Many, many thanks out to David Burke for recording this great video of Alexandra’s performance of “Do You Love What You Feel?” live at NYC’s Apollo Theater.

EDIT: Thanks once again to David, the post has been updated with the full performance of “I’m Every Woman”. Watch how brilliantly AB holds her own with Deborah Cox and Jennifer Holliday. The vocal was simply spot on perfection!
As you all know, last night Alexandra made her official debut in America at the 8th Annual Spring Gala Concert honoring Chaka Khan. During the show, Alex performed two songs including “Do You Love What You Feel?” (view here) and “I’m Every Woman” with Jennifer Holliday & Deborah Cox.

Earlier today, Alexandra’s PR team released a statement, confirming that the upcoming “Lady Sings The Blues” Royal Albert Hall & Chickenshed shows have been postponed, due to high demand. Alex has also released a statement via Twitter regarding the unfortunate news.
“Statement re: @alexandramusic: “Due to an overwhelming demand for tickets, Alexandra Burke has decided to postpone her June ‘Lady Sings The Blues’ concerts and re-schedule the performances for later this year, at additional venues. Tickets for the six dates at the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room sold out within hours, with many fans disappointed, so these new dates, to be announced soon, will allow more fans to see and enjoy the shows.” ”

“Hi, I’m afraid we’re postponing the Royal Albert Hall shows until later in the year. Sorry for any disappointment. I’ll tweet the statement.”
