Alex Boye says, "I have been entertaining audiences worldwide for over 15 years. I was born and raised in London, England. I have music hits in over 15 countries and have sold over half a million CDs. I have performed alongside such groups as Bryan Adams, George Michael, Simon and Garfunkel, MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, N'SYNC, Jay-Z, The Backstreet Boys, Jordyn Sparks, Dancing with the Stars winner Derek Huff, Missy Elliott, Mary J. Blige, David Archuleta, and The Smashing Pumpkins to name a few.

"I was an LDS missionary for two years in England, Bristol. Shortly after that, I chose to go into music as a career, so I could use my music to influence and inspire people for good.

"I have performed in many notable venues across the nation including the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In acting, I have played a walk on role in CBS's hit sitcom 'How I met your mother.'

"I have featured music in several movie soundtracks including "Charly", "The Dance", "Baptists at the Barbecue", "Suits on the Loose", and "Church Ball".

"I love to laugh. Some of the highlights in my life have been giving a book of Mormon to Prince Charles, joining the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and marrying my beautiful, hot wife Julie.

"I recorded two solo songs on the New Tabernacle Choir CD 'Come Thou Fount', which has garnered rave reviews reaching number one on the Billboard Classical Charts.

"I performed two songs on the Mormon Tabernacle Choirs' sold out Midwest tour.

Why I am a Mormon:

Alex says, "I am a Mormon because I have finally found something that I believe in that has given me a vision of how I should live my life successfully, happily and in the most purposeful and fulfilling way.

"God can take ordinary people and put them in extraordinary situations. He can bless us all in ways we cannot comprehend. From my own experience, in order for that to happen we need to let go of our E-G-Os ( Edge God Out.) That seems to be the reason for almost every problem we face in day-to-day living. We cannot survive in this world without God's influence in our lives."
