Members of Liberty Oak Chorus performed for crowds at the American Cancer Society fundraiser:  
Freehold's Re-Lei For A Cure today at Freehold Raceway Track, Freehold, NJ

"The Relay For Life movement is American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser dedicated to helping communities attack cancer. From team members to volunteers, we all want to remember those we’ve lost, help those affected today, and give us a home team advantage against cancer. Through funds donated, time given, or awareness raised, our communities are teaming up to make a difference. When we rally together in the fight against cancer through this fun and inspirational event, we can accomplish anything."

Alexa auditioned for and subsequently attended Howell’s High School Fine Performing Arts Center as an acting major, Westminster Choir College’s Solo Vocal Artist program, Rutgers Musical Theatre Academy, Papermill Playhouse’s Summer Conservatoy and even the prestigious Juilliard Pre-College Vocal Program.  

Performing has given Alexa her purpose and philosophy in life. She states, “Performing for me isn’t about being a star or getting rich.  It’s a way to show the most vulnerable parts of yourself to an audience that tries to hide those same parts of themselves everyday.”

She will be pursuing a degree in Performance and Music Education at Ithaca College this fall.

We congratulate this very talented young woman.
