Up and coming 19-year-old singer-songwriter Lexa Raquel (http://on.fb.me/IR9VAD) lists a pretty dynamic array of musical greats that have influenced her over the years. Currently a freshman on a full music scholarship at the University of Arizona, the 19-year-old singer songwriter is pulling off a superhuman feat (for an indie artist) with the fast rising “One of a Kind,” sharing chart space with superstars like Radiohead, Justin Bieber, The Wanted and Lionel Richie/Shania Twain’s “Endless Love” on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales Chart.
The soulful pop track, inspired by thoughts of her grandfather (a WWII vet) on the one year anniversary of his passing, made its debut on the chart at #19 and still climbing up the charts. The video for the song will soon be featured nationwide on the in-store media systems at Foot Locker to Forever 21.
