Alena has always loved singing, but didn't discover her talent until the fourth grade, when she wowed her family and peers at a school show. She knew music was the path for her, but by the time she graduated high school, she was involved in the beauty world and went on to become a cosmetologist. Soon after starting her own bridal beauty company, brides started asking her to do their hair and makeup as well as perform at their wedding. Alena is gearing up to be a bride herself and hopes "The Voice" will be her chance to finally put her singing front and center.
