Lexi signs with Malaco

The Malaco Music Group recently announced the signing of Alexis Allen, professionally known as “Lexi.”

Lexi has amassed an impressive following through both music and television.  Before realizing her destiny to have a musical ministry of her own, she was a background vocalist for Gerald LeVert, Fred Hammond, and Vanessa Bell Armstrong.  Her most critically acclaimed project, A Praise in The Valley, garnered her a Stellar Award nomination.

In early 2006, Lexi became the “face” of the The Word Network. The birth of the The Lexi Show, a one-on-one style talk show, became Lexi’s new endeavor and proved to be a groundbreaking success for the network.  The fifth season of The Lexi Show currently airs every Saturday at noon (EST) on The Word Network.  In addition, Lexi can be heard weekly on “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show,” bringing listeners the latest gospel news.

Executive Director of Malaco’s Gospel Division, D.A. Johnson, says, “Fans of [Lexi’s] television show will be pleasantly surprised when they are finally introduced to her music. I’m excited to see what God is going to do in this season of her life.”

Lexi comments, “I am humbled to be a family member of the iconic recording label Malaco Records. I am honored to have the opportunity of continuing in the legacy of great singers, musicians and music.”

Lexi’s debut Malaco CD, entitled Phenomenal, produced by Marcus Cole of Commissioned, will be released in spring/summer 2012.

“Be Still” – Yolanda Adams

“Be Still” 
Yolanda Adams
From the CD, Becoming (Available May 3, 2011)
After almost four years, Yolanda Adams is blessing us again with new music like only she can deliver. Adams’ eleventh studio album, Becoming, is scheduled to drop May 3rd (exclusively at Walmart), and her single, “Be Still,” is already growing on old and new fans alike.
Perhaps it seems paradoxical that Adams’ current single is “Be Still.”  With a rigorous performance schedule, a highly successful morning show, and the release of her first book, Points of Power, the multi award-winning songstress appears to have been everything but still during her recording hiatus. 
The lyrics, however, don’t refer to life’s business as much as life’s busyness.  Expressed in tandem with Adams’ characteristically flawless vocals is the loving appeal from Father to child to “sit in silence and to find out I’ve always been right here, waiting on you to come near me….Be still and know, just be still and know I will never leave your side.”
