Lexy Panterra: The “Supa Dupa” Diva
They say that girls are made of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Whoever thought this must had Lexy Panterra in mind. She has the dazzling beauty to capture hearts in order to win beauty pageants and got the edge to maneuver a motorcycle at top speed to win races. However, the thrill of a race or the wearing the crown of a pageant cannot take her away from her passion; singing. I was fortunate enough to sit down and interview Lexy on how she got into the business and how she plans to take over the world one dance floor at a time.
Lexy is not a stranger to the limelight. Her father is Tony Panterra, stunt man and actor most notably known for his role on Terminator. Her uncle is the famous drag racer Tony Dodd. However, Lexy was able to own her own in the limelight. At the age of five, she was a winner of a beauty pageant and at the age of eight, she was racing motorcycles, in which she won 10 trophies in her career. She soon got away from doing beauty pageants and racing as she moved in with her father. This move led Lexy to stray away from the beauty pageants and motorcycle races. With that, Lexy focused more on singing and dancing. She grew up learning tap, jazz, ballet, and hip-hop. Her skills on the dance floor led her to join Bloc Dance Agency, a prominent dance agency in LA; but her stay there was short-lived. “I didn’t stay with Bloc long, my singing kept me away from being there for certain auditions and events. Therefore, I just decided to leave the agency.” It didn’t matter where Lexy went or what she was doing, opportunity always came to “knock on her door”. For instance, Lexy was lounging poolside at her uncle’s loft one day when a production rep saw her and immediately wanted to sign her. From this meeting, Lexy went on to record her first single “Supa Dupa”. “This song was originally written for me, it was written for Fergie but I wanted it to bad and so I got it.” This single was featured on an episode of Entourage. From there, Lexy has not stopped unleashing her musical talents.
Lexy has since completed her album “Take Over”, an album which includes some nice hits like “Heaven” and “Neon”. “I named this album Take Over because I always had a saying that I want to take over one club or dance floor at a time with my music and my dancing. I won’t stop until I do.” She is also performing in the musical “The Playground” at the Met Theatre. She portrays the character “Star”, a name deemed fit for this entertainer.
