" becoming a constant and fast rising presence on the prestigious Billboard Magazine Latin Hits Charts, and his album having just entered the Latin Album charts, plus him being nominated to Premio "Lo Nuestro
"of Univision TV and having being invited to perform on the Billboard Awards, the American press is definitely falling for our hot Brazilian star.
During his last visit to the country, Alexandre did a lot of press interview, conferences and one-on-ones that resulted in several fabulous press articles and features, among which we can certainly highlight the one recently published on the "Houston Chronicle", where the singer talked about the performance of his first soloist and totally recorded in Spanish album "Alexandre Pires" overseas, about his career in Brazil from the beginning till his days of stardom with # 1 pop samba band So Pra Contrariar and he also talked about more personal things like family, and how he was influenced by his parents, both musicians (mom is a singer, dad is a drummer.
Alexandre didn't fail to mention the importance of working towards WW recognition, remembering the success of his previous albums (with SPC) released internationally like "Juegos de Amor", that introduced to the world version in Spanish of huge SPC hits and the track "Santo Santo", a fabulous duo recorded with Latin superstar Gloria Estefan;
Alexandre's hard work to improve his Spanish skills, and most recently the huge success of his current hit singles "Usted Se Me Llevó La Vida" (Top 5 on Latin chart) and "Necesidad" (recently proved to be gaining even more popularity than it's predecessor in the US, from the fantastic response of the crowd present at LA's top Latin radio station Klove show last December singing along to the lyrics).
As if this was not enough, the Houston Chronicle feature calls Alexandre "the Brazilian Babyface", comparing his suave and emotional singing style to larger -than-life names of R&B like Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder, and wraps up commenting on the upcoming release of So Pra Contrariar's acoustic album early this year
