Singing in her grandfather’s church since she was old enough to hold a microphone; Lexi has always understood that singing praises to God was what she was born to do.

Having sang all her life, Lexi also had a passion for the stage that began to blossom during her undergraduate studies at Bowling Green State University, majoring in Interpersonal Communications and having a minor in Theatre. Later, she was able to use her degree as a teacher at Northland High School in Columbus, Ohio.

Lexi’s heart for singing led her to land a small stint as a background vocalist for the Gerald LeVert, Fred Hammond, and Vanessa Bell Armstrong, before realizing her own destiny, in which she would have a musical ministry of her own.

Lexi met and married Michael Allen, a music producer, who helped develop her writing and vocal ability to create her own musical sound. Michael Allen, helped Lexi release three national recording projects to date. Lexi and her husband were the first gospel music act to sign to boxing champion Evander Holyfield’s record label. While on Evander’s label the two created a unique sound on the 2004 critically acclaimed project, “A Praise in the Valley”. That album landed Lexi a Stellar Gospel Music Award nomination. Lexi’s latest album “What Heaven Hears” was released soon thereafter in 2005.
