“We were impressed by Lexi’s talent, her sincerity, innocence and her fresh, wholesome approach as she’s been catapulted up the star ladder,” says Marc Rosenberg, spokesman of WowWee USA, Inc. “She’s ideal for the new Paper Jamz line—a girl who nurtured her dream from singing with a hairbrush to a national TV debut.”

“I’m speechless with gratitude,” Lexi adds. “This whole experience has been so overwhelming and humbling. I thank WowWee for choosing me to make my commercial debut with the Paper Jamz Pro Series Mic!”

The Paper Jamz Pro Series Microphone helps kids of all ages sing like a pro. Users transfer popular tunes—hundreds to choose from today directly—from their existing music files onto their Pro Microphones. Onboard controls offer the vocalist “perfect pitch,” chorus, harmony, vibrato and other vocal effects, which are played back through the Mic’s own speaker. The Paper Jamz Pro Series Microphone MSRP is $29.99 and is available now.
