With more than 110 million total YouTube views and counting, Alex Boyé is "Africanizing" the pop landscape, infusing the explosive rhythms and various languages of his ancestral continent (he was raised by his Nigerian mother) into his music. Embracing his rich heritage after years of successful recordings as a gospel artist, the London born, U.S. based vocal powerhouse is having a breakthrough year as a mainstream pop artist. Alex said, "The ultimate goal is to make people feel good and give them a few moments of uplift, which as I've discovered over the years, can have transforming and even lifesaving potential."
