Alice Victoria Rose Chater (born 5 April 1995) is a British singer, songwriter and dancer.

After releasing covers online throughout the mid-2010s, she eventually signed to Virgin EMI. Since then, she has released several singles, the most notable being "Lola" with Iggy Azalea and "Got It All" with Professor Green.

Life and career[edit]

Chater attended the Italia Conti School of Performing Arts in London and signed a recording contract with Virgin EMI Records in 2017.[1]

She has written songs with songwriters and producers including Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk, Mark Ralph, Kee Ingrosso and Rachel Furner.

Chater released three covers in 2017 before releasing her own original music, covering "More Than You Know" by Axwell & Ingrosso which originally featured uncredited production by LIOHN & Salvatlre and uncredited vocals from Kristoffer Fogelmark. This was followed by a cover of Mariah Carey's "Vision Of Love" and Madonna's "Hung Up".

She released her visual introduction video "My Name Is Alice" in April 2018,[2] followed by the release of her first single, "Girls x Boys", later that month. The second 2018 single, titled "Heartbreak Hotel", includes a sample from Anita Ward's 1979 song "Ring My Bell". Her third single, "Hourglass", was released 3 October 2018 and samples the Human League's 1981 hit, "Don't You Want Me". Her two most recent singles, "Wonderland (My Name Is Alice)", and "Thief", were released on 11 January 2019 and 18 January 2019 respectively.

On 2 August 2019, she released her single, "Tonight" along with a music video on YouTube.[3]

Chater released the collaboration "Lola" with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea in November 2019.[4] The song charted in the UK, the US, Scotland, and New Zealand. The duo performed the song at the International Music Awards in Berlin, Germany.

Personal life[edit]

Chater was inspired to sing as a child by her parents' opera collection, as well as singers Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston.[5]
