National | Lexi signs with Motown Gospel
The gifted and beautiful singer, actress and comedian, Lexi will bring her talents to Motown Gospel for her first album in five years.
Lexi Allen is a natural talent who has been singing since she was a child growing up in her grandfather’s church. Her 1990 debut, “Call Me Lexi,” caught the attention of the world launching a career that would expand into acting, comedy and more. Her 2012 release, the critically acclaimed Phenomenal, featured the hit singles “Burn It All Down,” and“Abide.”
Today, the Detroit-based artist is well-known for being an innovator of online urban and church humor where her YouTube channel has become a go-to site for comedy videos. Creating entertaining and memorable characters, Lexi’s comedic timing and hilarious skits have set her apart as a viral sensation.
Lexi’s powerful vocals and signature tone will help bring her first love — singing— back to the forefront. “For as long as I can remember, there have been a few things that have remained at the center of my life— God, family, music & laughter,” shared Lexi. “Motown Gospel and I agree that it is time to re-focus on the music. I’m encouraged and motivated, and I’m anticipating great things with such an amazing team at Motown Gospel.”
Poised to fill a void in today’s gospel marketplace, Lexi is an undeniable talent. “It is a true joy to partner with an artist who has such a developed sense of creativity and personality,” said Monica Coates, Vice President of A&R, Motown Gospel. “We are excited to support her as she takes her music to the next level.”
