The voice that we fell in love with on “The Glee Project” is back and it is not a game.
Born, Alex Eugene Newell August 20, 1992 is an American actor and singer. He is best known for his recurring (later starring) role as transgender student Wade “Unique” Adams on Fox‘s musical comedy-drama Glee.
Newell was born on August 20, 1992 in Lynn, Massachusetts. His father died of cancer when he was six years old, at which point his mother raised him as a single parent. After four years of education in the first class of Kipp Lynn Academy, he moved on to and graduated from Bishop Fenwick High School in 2012, where he was involved in his school’s choir, improv club, and costume club; he was also a member of his church choir. Newell was accepted into the Berklee College of Music for fall 2012, but he decided instead to move to Los Angeles to be on Glee when he was asked to rejoin the cast for the show’s fourth season. He is an out gay man, as revealed on The Glee Project. (source: wikipedia)
