This past Fall, I was introduced to another young artist from a small town in Norway! Like Greyson Chance, Alexandru was discovered due to a post that was made to YouTube, which has become one of the best ways for talented youngsters to market themselves.
Alexandru comes complete with the whole package. While only eleven-years-old, he enters the pop market with great looks, a wonderful personality, and more than amazing vocal skills.
He was first discovered by the producer Stormbreaker from the UK (Stormbreaker Inc.) Stormbreaker took no time at all to arrange to have Alexandru and his family flown to London, England where he could meet with them and have Alexandru shoot his very first music video and make a few studio recordings.
Alexandru was first introduced to the world on Rivenmaster.com last October and has been enjoying many new subscribers and amassing a large number of fans. His soft, gentle, yet vibrant vocals draw you in, making you an instant fan. His gift for being extremely photogenic hasn’t hurt either and, since returning home, he has captured the audience of two major newspapers.
While it’s been difficult to catch up with Alexandru since his return from London, I have managed to secure a special interview which you can view below, both via an exclusive video produced for The Skykid.com and transcribed below for your convenience.

Alexandru: Spare time with my family is most important to me. We spend a lot of time together and we talk a lot at dinner time, take small trips and we talk a lot. I don’t have any pets, but our neighbor’s cat is coming to us every day!
Rivenmaster: What do you enjoy outside of your musical pursuits?
Alexandru: I spend a lot of time with my friends; I am on my Xbox360, on my PC, skateboard, BMX. Now there’s snow outside, so it will be a lot of snowboarding!
