As a former high school teacher, Lexi embarked back onto the music scene in 1999 with Evander Holyfield's record label Holy Music Group/Real Deal Records. Her mission is that the body of Christ be liberated and empowered to be an effective authority on earth as God intended.
Lexi received her musical baptism singing in the Ohio based Pentecostal Church where her grandfather served as Senior Pastor and Founder. "I probably started singing when I was about five or six," says Lexi.
In 1990, barely out of her teens, her critically acclaimed album Call Her Lexi, made a huge impact on gospel music audiences and on the industry as a whole. Her contemporary style and the album's urban crossover appeal garned a wave of attention to this budding talent.
Throughout her career as a singer, Lexi sang background for Gerald LeVert during her college years, was a former member of the CCM group Anointed, and sang background with Fred Hammond, and Dawkins & Dawkins, all before venturing out on her own.
After all that, Lexi completed her undergraduate studies at Bowling Green State University where she received her Bachelor's of Arts degree in Interpersonal Communication. Shortly after that, she toured in leading roles with such plays as Michael Matthew's, "I Need A Man," and "A Good Man Is Hard To Find." She then went back to school, and received a teaching degree from the University of Detroit, Mercy.
After nine years away from the music industry, Lexi returned with the album from Real Deal Records entitled, Lexi...And That's the Way It Is. Videos from that album, "I'm A Winner," and "Conversation," are still being aired and requested, and are being voted number one on gospel video countdowns all over the country by viewers. Furthermore, collaborating with her husband and producer Michael Allen, she was nominated for the coveted Stellar Award.
Her sophomore release, entitled, Somewhere Different included the hit "Don't You" (Tell Me What God Won't Do), with her good friend Marcus Cole of Commissioned. The response began to solidify Lexi as a remarkable solo artist.
Her third release is the best yet. "This project is totally different from anything that I've ever recorded before," says Lexi. She continues, "This project is a live recording that includes some of the most anointed and closest friends of mine. I have no doubt that people will be set free by the power of God from these songs." Some of her guests on the album and DVD release entitled, A Praise in The Valley, include gospel artists, Williams Murphy, Kim Burrell, Dave & Nicole Binion, and K & K Mime.
Lexi has also ventured into television, as the new host and field reporter for The Word Network. She has just wrapped production on her first show entitled: 1on1 w/ Lexi! It is tentatively set to air in the fall of 2005. "We must be willing to utilize every avenue of the mass media including radio, television, and print, to win souls in our generation and generations to come for the body of Christ," says Lexi. "I'm just getting started."
