Alexander Star’s bio:

Alexander Star is an Emmy®-nominated singer, rap artist, musical humanitarian, and South Floridian of 20 years. 

Known to "give hope while bein' dope," Star writes music as a tool to 'highlight the inner glow' he sees in people through an authentic lens. 

Alexander Star's music is featured in Super Bowl campaigns, prime-time television shows, international brand anthems, and beyond.

Backed by his band – The Golden People – Alexander Star's live shows are dynamic, inclusive, and suitable for all audiences, delivering hybrids of hip-hop, R&B, reggae, rock & pop vibrations. 

In addition to their headline shows, Alexander Star & The Golden People have opened in concert for global acts such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Black Violin, and Koffee.

Off the stage, Star has dedicated 10+ years of musical mentorship toward helping students write and record original songs rooted in purpose. 

His experience working closely with at-risk teens (survivors of abuse, neglect, trafficking, and the foster care system) sharpens Star's ability to use lyrics as an empowerment tool.

Alexander Star has created anthems for many organizations that impact our local communities daily: 

211 Broward, HANDY, Inc., The Children Services Council, Xtreme Action Park, and Feeding South Florida, to name a few.

Most recently, in collaboration with Visit Lauderdale and Winterfest, Alexander Star created & launched the official anthem for Greater Fort Lauderdale entitled "Laudy Dayo."

Alexander Star is the second artist in history (following Elvis Presley himself) to create a song officially backed by Greater Fort Lauderdale.
