Name the one musician who could always blow you away with his incredible, music projects. The remarkable singer whose talent is unrivaled. The spectacular artist who mesmerizes everyone with his outstanding songs and breathtaking, live performances. There’s no question about it, the person that instantaneously popped up in everyone’s mind is the one, the only, Alex Aiono. No words will ever be enough to describe just how brilliant Alex Aiono is. He’s a phenomenal singer who won over the hearts of fans within nanoseconds with his extraordinary covers he shares on his YouTube channel. Each and every one of Alex Aiono’s covers always go viral – from his mashup of “One Dance” and “Hasta El Amanecer,” which was all the rave and was the trending topic on every social media network you could think of, garnering over a whopping 58 million views and counting, to other excellent covers such as his “I Spy” cover, his “Black Beatles” cover and many others. Alex Aiono’s awe-inspiring vocals combined with his terrific talent for producing his own beats make you love and appreciate the song he’s covering even more and be mesmerized by the amazing way he’s able to add his very own twist to the hit song.

Aside from making our week even better whenever he releases a new video on his YouTube channel, we all also love listening to Alex Aiono’s amazing, original songs. Alex Aiono has released two, hit singles titled “Question” and “Work The Middle,” and needless to say, you can totally count on us listening to those songs on constant repeat. Alex Aiono’s songs have such magnificent beats and rhythms to them and of course, his stellar, singing voice is something we all enjoy listening to endlessly. Alex Aiono has also been in a new city each day performing for thousands and thousands of fans. The marvelous singer continues to show that the stage is where he is meant to be and he always gives a superb performance. Seeing Alex Aiono live in concert is definitely an unforgettable and life-changing experience.

A singing sensation, an awesome YouTuber, a fantastic actor (who else totally fangirled watching him on AwesomenessTV’s Royal Crush?!) – what’s not to love about Alex Aiono?! It’s clear to see that Alex Aiono is making a great impact in everyone’s lives through his music. Despite his massive success, Alex Aiono continues to be so down-to-earth and genuine, yet another one of the many reasons why this hard-working musician deserves all of his successes. With a highly-anticipated, new single coming out on September 15th and many more projects up his sleeve, Alex Aiono is continuing to establish himself as a profound musician and a household name.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the great honor of covering the 2017 Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day again and had an excellent time catching up with and interviewing the multi-talented Alex Aiono again at the event. Alex Aiono dished exclusively to Alexisjoyvipaccess all about his new single coming out on September 15th, what his favorite song is to perform in front of all of his fans, what it was like working on AwesomenessTV and Invisalign’s “Made To Move” short film, and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE updated interview. Alex Aiono even took on a fun speed round and showed us all his best tennis player pose, revealed which tennis player he would verse, and more – hear what he had to say in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE updated interview below. Thanks for another fun interview, Alex!

Whether you’re watching the Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in person or live on TV, this exceptional event will always put a big smile on your face and it will never fail to leave you in awe.

On August 26, 2017, fans filed in the Arthur Ashe Stadium for one of the most unforgettable days ever. Each and every year, the Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day brings pure fan-demonium and tennis fun and the extraordinary event manages to get even bigger and better as each year goes by. Without a doubt, this year’s Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day was the best one yet with some of the biggest acts in the music world. Musical sensations including Alex Aiono, Jack and Jack, Why Don’t We, Sofia Carson, New Hope Club, Spencer Sutherland and Saving Forever left everyone mesmerized with their out of this world and breathtaking performances. They all had everyone up on their feet singing along to their hit songs and everyone was definitely fan-girling and fan-boying over the excellent performances. The fantastic, musical event was also hosted by Alex Aiono and Sofia Carson, who brought even more fun to the show.

Everyone’s heart rates went up from excitement when tennis icons including Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Venus Williams, and Angelique Kerber brought their unrivaled and indescribable tennis skills and talent to the court. These tennis greats had a wonderful time taking on a fun tennis challenge with a young tennis player himself who blew everyone away with his great talent. Not everyday do you get to see some of the most renowned and consummate tennis players together only a couple of feet in front of you, and when you do, it’s at the Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day – one of the most excellent events on this planet. It’s so wonderful to see all of these incredible tennis players join together to show their support towards kids following after their dreams and wanting to pursue a career in tennis too. It’s definitely a once in a lifetime experience to see, let alone, have the chance to even play, with tennis players you look up to. It goes to show that the Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day is a sensational event that encourages everyone to work hard, get up and get active, and go after their dreams, and amazing things can be achieved.

Arthur Ashe was a stupendous tennis player who made history with his record-breaking achievements. In addition to being a stellar tennis star, he also was a great inspiration to everyone and he definitely impacted the lives of many. His legacy continues to live on and what Arthur Ashe has contributed to the sport of tennis and to people in general who just want to follow after their dreams and accomplish big things is truly awe-inspiring.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the greatest honor of covering the prestigious 2017 Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day event again for the third year in a row. The Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day is definitely one of my favorite events, for obvious reasons. It’s filled with magnificent memories, great musical performances, adrenaline-filled tennis activities, and it inspires everyone in more ways than imaginable. There is always a special feeling in the air whenever it’s time for the Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day!

With King Bach hosting the spectacular award show and certainly giving us all a night to remember, oh and he announced that he is running for President (#VoteForKingBach!) plus many more sensational highlights, the 2016 Streamy Awards definitely made entertainment and online-video making history.

It’s so awe-inspiring to see how far the online-video making world has come and how so many content creators have gone on to doing some remarkable things because of their hard work and passion for creating incredible content. That’s what the Streamy Awards is all about – celebrating all of the successes and the future of the online-video making world and how much of an impact it has made in all of our lives.

The Streamy Awards brought together so many of our favorite content creators under one roof. The night had many memorable moments such as many extraordinary online-video makers coming out to present at the event and the one and only Biz Markie taking on the stage at the event to perform his hit songs “Just a Friend” and “Make The Music With Your Mouth.” The night was even more special with a touching and mesmerizing tribute to the stupendous Christina Grimmie, who was a genius and phenomenal musician and YouTuber, and Kurt Hugo Schneider and Sam Tsui’s performance to honor the late singer left everyone speechless.

The 2016 Streamy Awards promised a marvelous night and it truly gave that!

If there is one person who defines what it is like to be so immensely talented that it is hard to even put it into words, then you basically have yourself none other than Mr. Alex Aiono. Ever since Alex Aiono has been releasing covers on his YouTube channel of some of the most popular, hit songs, we’ve all had an endless amount of heart-eye emojis for this incredibly talented musician. His singing voice is like no other and whether you are a fan of the song or not, Alex Aiono will make you want to listen to the song, and especially his cover of it, over and over again.

In addition to all of his other exceptional covers, Alex Aiono brought out a “One Dance and Hasta El Amanecer” cover that currently has over 41,000,000 views and counting.
