Hi I'm Alex Boye

I was born in London England. I am a recording artist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been entertaining audiences worldwide for over 15 years. I was born and raised in London, England,and has had hits in over 15 countries, selling over half a million Cd's and have performed alongside such groups as Bryan Adams, George Michael, Simon 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 have been an Lds missionary for 2 years in England Bristol, and shortly after that 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 in role in CBS's hit sitcom ' How i met your mother. I have also had music featured in several movie Soundtracks including Charly, The Dance, Baptist at the Barbecue,Suits on the Loose, and Church ball. I simply refer to myself as the "Token Black Guy in Utah" Well there us 3 of us, but i claim it! 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 have recorded two solo songs on the New Tabernacle Choir CD "Come Thou Fount" Which has garnered rave reviews reached #1 in the Billboard Classical Charts. I have performed 2 songs on the Mormon Tabernacle choirs' sold out Midwest tour.

Why I am a Mormon

I am 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, and can bless us all in ways we cannot comprehend. In order for that to happen, from my own experience I tell people that 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 Gods influence in our lives.

How I live my faith

I Live my faith one day at a time, and i wear it on my sleeve. I am an open book and filter my whole life through the things i believe. If it is good, and uplifting, i will do it, if it is destructive and brings me down or people around me, then i wont' do it. This comes from the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and has made ALL the difference in my life!!

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Alex Boye
It is so easy to get caught up in the rat-race of life, and sometimes neglect that which really bring blessings to 'life' this little article has helped me greatly with my priorities.. THE CELLPHONE VS THE SCRIPTURES I wonder what would happen if we treated our scriptures like we treat our cell phones? What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets? What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it? What if we flipped through it several times a day? What if we spent an hour or more using it every day? What if we used it to receive messages? What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it? What if we gave it to other kids as gifts? What if we used it as we traveled? What if we used it in case of an emergency? This is something to make you go...."Hmmm..Dude.. where is my scriptures?" Unlike our cell phones: One Plan does fit all. Unlimited usage. No roaming charges. You always have reception. You can use it in the mountains and in a tunnel. It's free with no hidden costs, AND you don't ever have to worry your scriptures being disconnected because CHRIST has already paid the bill!

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Alex Boye
No, there are not. I hold the Priesthood, which is an incredible blessing for myself and my family. For a time, there were restrictions, and it seems that there were some bad feelings towards the Church about it, but consider this...In my own personal studies, there was not a single Church or religion in the United States, or throughout the world in the last century who did not practice some kind of segregation or discrimination. Humans are far from perfect (Which is why we ALL need the influence of a loving God in our lives) In the mid 1800's, leaders of our church particularly suffered major persecution for allowing slaves to live and have membership among the Mormons and were tarred, feathered, beaten, and even driven out of their homes for it. In fact, in 1844 when Joseph Smith (The first prophet of the Latter- Day Church) ran for President of the United States, one of his major platforms was to have slavery abolished by 1850. This did not go down very well in a state that owned slaves as property. Like any other faith, people are striving to be better through living fully the principles taught by the savior, which comes line upon line, precept on precept. With all this said, the Church that has an official declaration that is printed within Latter-Day Saint scripture announcing to the world that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as a whole, do not permit any form of discrimination against color anywhere in the church. I am not aware of many faiths that have an official document like this included in pages of scripture used by all Latter-Day Saints. There is great power in personal revelation and it can be given to all men who seek the Lord and have desires to know his will..It is amazing!! Show more Show less
