Alexander Burke training to be life coach

CAREER CHANGE: Alexandra Burke (PA)

X FACTOR winner Alexandra Burke has revealed that she is currently training to become a life coach.

Burke who won the competition in 2008, appeared on ITV's Lorraine yesterday morning (Jan 28) to explain how her new role had benefitted her life.

She said: "It's definitely brought a different kind of perspective.

"I'm definitely way more balanced than I ever was and I've been able to come out of my comfort zone, come out of my shell a little bit more.

"I'm enjoying life at the moment. I'm really in a happy place, a really spiritual, happy place."

The unsigned artist, who parted ways with her record label RCA in
2013, said she planned on releasing new material sometime this year.

"With this album I've really gone with my heart and soul, I can't even
give it a genre", the singer said.

"It's very voice-driven, it's all about the voice and is vocal-led. There's big power ballads and it's something that's very close to me, so taken mea while to do."

She denied the rumours she was set to join the X Factor panel, after she was a substitute judge when ex-Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland was absent due to illness.

Burke added: 'It was fun, but I'm don't think it's something I'd like to do full time simply because my priority is music.

"I really want to make sure I get those goals on my checklist ticked off because there's so much more I want to do."
