What’s this we hear? A little suburban London fairy is coming to our shores again?
Victoria Louise “Pixie” Lott is just like her name would suggest – she’s a tiny thing. But don’t let her size fool you – because the woman’s got a powerful voice! And that’s not entirely surprising. Pixie started singing from when she was only five years old in her church school. Ah, early training.
She then went on to appear in various performances such as the West End production of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” at the London Palladium, BBC One’s “Celebrate the Sound of Music”, and Roger Waters’s opera “Ça Ira”.
In 2009, her debut single aka the song that earned her the mad rush of fame, “Mama Do“, was released:

It went straight to number one in the UK Singles Chart. She quickly became a face (and voice) to watch. Her second single, “Boys and Girls”, which was released three months later, also topped the UK charts.
Pixie Lott’s debut album, “Turn It Up” was released within the same month and it was a true testament to her talent because it reached number six on the UK Albums Chart, spawning five consecutive Top 20 singles, and sold over a million copies.
Needless to say, the English sing-songwriter was over the moon!
She was immediately propelled into the international music industry, armed with a voice that can easily dominate the world. “Turn It Up” spent about a year in the top 40 and she continued to receive praises for her stellar live performances.
In true chart-breaker fashion, Pixie Lott continued to win over the hearts of fans and “prospects” with her music. Such as the chest-heaving ballad, “Cry Me Out“:

Now, she returns with her second album, “Young Foolish Happy”.
The first single, “All About Tonight” was released in September 2011 and it premiered at No.1. That would mark Pixie Lott’s third UK No.1 single to date.
Still, this little one aims to please. And this May, Pixie Lott is making her way across the world. Yup, Pixie fans and crazy cats, your idol is coming to town, courtesy of Universal Music Malaysia. Deets as follows:
