Sierra Deaton is an American pop star, performer, and musician. Upon winning the 2013 season of The X Factor, she became famous as one side of the pop duo Alex & Sierra. They released a new version of their debut album, "Quick" and "Right," since taking first place in Season 3 of X-Factor.
Alex and Sierra spoke on Twitter on September 1, 2017, that they are no longer in love and therefore cannot create music jointly, although being at the height of their fame.
Sierra Phuong-Thao Deaton was born on February 11, 1991, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the United States. Sierra and her sister LaraDeaton were raised in Philadelphia by their British father Dr. John Deato and their Vietnamese housewife mother Vu Deaton. When she was two years old, she developed a passion for dancing, and when her parents recognized this, they enrolled her in a dance studio where she studied Ballet, Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Contemporary. She also learned how to play the piano and competed in Irish dancing seven times, winning three crowns.
Regarding her education, she was a member of the theater club at Lake Howell High School, where she participated in numerous school plays and played the lead role in several of them. She was also a member of the soccer squad for her school, which kept her physically fairly active. She decided not to enroll in college after graduating from high school in 2009 as one of the top students in her class in order to concentrate on her singing career.
When Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton went on X-Factor, their romance quickly gained attention. In 2013, Alex and Sierra competed on the X Factor and were the eventual winners. Already when they made their official TV debut, the couple had been together for two years. The duo nevertheless, were already performing prior to their appearance on the broadcast. But X-Factor was the program that made them famous. Unfortunately, the couple confirmed their separation in 2017 after dating for years. Although Sierra and Alex never discussed their breakup, she did talk about how things went south. The pair disclosed that the band would also be ending because they had split up a year earlier.
They jointly announced their breakup and published it on all of their social media platforms. Although we are bands, the statement said, "It feels like the original sentence will be some of the hardest to write. Many of you have been following us for years; you saw us go from two young people who met on a Florida beach in 2009 to a pair who won a TV contest, put out albums, and went on tour" "But as everyone is aware, we've been best friends for a very long time and worked very hard to keep going.
We've reached a point where it feels better to diversify than to carry on collaborating, nevertheless. No band lasts forever, whether they dated or not, but we will cherish every memory and our love for them will unquestionably last forever", the post said. Alex and Sierra had stopped speaking to one another. In an earlier interview, she confirmed this: "No. When I really really needed him, I tried to reach out to him in a friendly manner, but he ignored me. It was not the kind of thing you could just ignore. I couldn't hurt myself over that friendship if he couldn't be a decent friend to me."
Sierra Deaton and musician Luke Hemmings from 5SOS are now together. In June 2021, after a year of dating, the couple announced their engagement. The couple keeps up their sharing of love experiences, trip journals, and adoration for one another.
