Of Nigerian ancestry, Alex had a tough childhood; he never met his father, and his mother wasn’t around for almost eight years as she was in Nigeria. His childhood was marked by him living in youth foster homes with Caucasian parents.
He turned to music for his comfort, and listened to such artists as Kool and the Gang, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding and James Brown among others, which inspired him to try himself as a musician. However, that didn’t happen until his late teens; he was working in a McDonald’s in London when he came into contact with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, joining the church and being baptized a short time later. He then began serving as a missionary for the LDS Church in Bristol, England, during which time he also made his first public performance as a musician.
Following the end of his missionary work, Alex began a career as a backup dancer and became a member of George Michael’s back-up dancers.
His musical career really started in 1995, when he formed with the R&B group Awesome; in a short time span, the band became extremely popular, but Alex didn’t enjoy touring, and as a result left the band in 1999. Soon after he joined two other musicians and started working on church hymns, creating such songs as “Count Your Many Blessings” and “Soul Saints”, so becoming extremely popular, and performing in Hyde Park, London, while also touring across Utah.
The following year he moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, to begin pursuing a career in Christian music, releasing his debut religious album “The Love Goes On” in 2001. He subsequently joined the 360-voice Mormon Tabernacle Choir, one of only three black members of the choir. He continued to work on his music career, and in 2012 started recording covers of popular songs in his own style, which brought him massive popularity. Some of the songs include “Paradise” by Coldplay, and “Ho Hey”, by Lumineers, but his real success came in 2014, when he produced an Africanized version of the song “Let It Go” from the film “Frozen”. Since then he has gone on to collaborate with Marie Osmond, and also appeared in “America’s Got Talent” TV show in 2015 with his band, but was eliminated on Judge Cuts Week 4.
Aside from music, Alex is also an accomplished actor; he started on stage with a part in the play “Civil War”, and then made a transition to screen with the role of Aminadab in the film “David & Goliath” in 2005. He subsequently featured in the film “Saints and Soldiers: The Void” (2014), while most recently, he appeared in the film “Saturday’s Warrior”, all of which have increased his net worth.
Regarding his personal life, Alex has been married to Julie since 2007; the couple has six children together.
Alex is a well-known philanthropist; back in 2009 he began humanitarian action to raise money for a local refugee family, buying them a house from the sales of his single “Crazy for You”.
In 2012, he became USA citizen and during the ceremony, he performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” song, on an invitation from the civic judge.
