Bronx-born Lexi Lawson is on a roll. When we featured her as a Woman Around Town more than a year ago, Lexi was appearing in the touring company of In the Heights. When she appeared on American Idol Season 8, Simon Cowell voted “100 percent yes!!!” and she has been wowing audiences ever since.
After Idol, she played Mimi in the world Broadway tour of Rent and played Carmen in Fame in Macau. She has performed in a range of venues, including Madison Square Garden and the Mohegan Sun, and has also amassed a host of TV and film credits.
Now, Lexi needs your votes. She leads the competition for Z100‘s Hometown Hero Competition. If she wins, she will perform live on stage at the Z100 and Coca-Cola All Access Lounge at Hammerstein Ballroom, the pre-event to the legendary Z100′s Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden on December 9, 2011.
The competition ends on December 1, so go to this link and cast your vote.
