Below is a part of an article, "Behind the Scenes of Lexi Walker's performance.
"Lexi Walker, 11, from Sandy, Utah, has captivated hundreds of thousands this past year with her performances at aReal Salt Lake soccer game , USANA's 2013 International Convention and the"We Are Hope" concert at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City.
But her most recent performance with artist Alex Boyé has garnered attention around the world, with video views reaching more than 18 million.
The young artist played the leading role of Elsa in Boyé's recent YouTube cover of "Let It Go," which was noteworthy in and of itself, but the Walker family's humble attitude has also impressed many.
"With six kids, we try and keep things normal for everyone by making sure that whatever comes up gets worked around doing things that really matter like family prayer, scripture study, eating together and, of course, laundry," Lexi's mother, Lisa Walker told the Deseret News.
When Lisa first began looking for a recording studio for Lexi a little more than a year ago, it wasn't to help Lexi pursue a solo career but to make her a member of the One Voice Children's Choir , which she now is.
"She told me, 'OK, how do I get my daughter in your choir?' And I said 'Why do you want your daughter to join a choir when she can already shine as a soloist all over the place?'" said Masa Fukuda, the director of One Voice Children's Choir. "I've worked with so many stage mothers that are all about promoting their daughters, and she said, 'No, no, no. I don't want my daughter to be a diva."
And even with the success of Lexi's solo in Boyé's video, she has remained modest about her performance.
"I only saw the video one time right in the beginning before there were very many views," Lexi told the Deseret News. "It wasn't until later that I heard it was going a little crazy. I'm really glad that people like it."
In addition to humility, the 11-year-old sensation also has an innate love for music......"
