Transcript for Remembering Alexa Valiente
Reporter: Alexa Valiente would tell you her name rhymes with caliente, hot and spice it is. She was born that way. After blazing her way through Seton hall university with honors, she joined ABC's digital team as an intern in 2013. A beloved member of the "Nightline" and "2020" families, she was a tenacious journalist. At popcorn with Peter Travers, she helped produce interviews with a galaxy of stars including snoop Dogg, who shared her birthday, a fun fact she loved to share. A fashion maven, Alexa travelled the world exhaustively, sharing vintage shopping tips on her Instagram feed, which is why her 10-year-old self was no doubt jumping for joy, trying on old school Barbie outfits for gma digital. My childhood self would be really excited to be wearing such a grown-up outfit. She was known for dancing the night away and occasionally serenading our newsroom. This is her scene-stealing rendition of "Shallow" dressed not as gaga, but as Bradley, beard and all. She and her duet partner Jonathan Balthazar took home first prize. Her friends say it was impossible not to get swept up by her sass, her charm, her enthusiasm for life. But most of all, Alexa was a devoted daughter, sister, and cherished friend who could light up a room and cheer up everyone in it with her contagious laughter. Alexa Gabrielle Valiente passed away unexpectedly over the weekend at the age of 27. We will all miss her here at "Nightline" and at ABC news, and we want to say to the members of the Valiente family, we are thinking of you tonight.
