BABA YETU

“Our Father”

I’m so happy I found this song.

I had never heard about it until an episode of America’s Got Talent Show where ‘Angel City Chorale‘ performed a cover.

What an amazing song!

Here’s Alex Boye’s version.

Baba Yetu” (Swahili: “Our Father“) is the theme song for the 2005 video game, Civilization IV. It was composed by Christopher Tin, and performed by Ron Ragin and the Stanford Talisman.

For its re-release in Tin’s debut album Calling All Dawns, it was performed by the Soweto Gospel Choir. The song, when rereleased, became the first piece of video game music to be nominated and win a Grammy Award.

This message is why Boyé believes he personally felt a deep connection to this particular song

“When my family found out I joined the church at the age of 16, I was kicked out of my house. That night, I walked the streets of London in tears clinging to the Book of Mormon like my life depended on it. It was the only thing constant left in my life,” Boyé said. “Whilst walking the streets homeless, I would recite the Lord’s Prayer and it became a source of deep comfort to me.”

A wonderful message.

A pop song with a soothing message.

Just what we need in these current times we are experiencing. 

If only we all could abide by it!

In the wake of a divisive election and biting social commentary on personal rights, religion, beliefs and attitudes, Mormon singer and songwriter Alex Boyé took some time recently to create and release a video in response to it all.

ALEX’S OWN WORDS

Last year, when I got eliminated from America’s Got Talent, It was a devastating blow to my self esteem. Pierce Morgan told me I’d never make it, Howard Stern said I was just a wedding singer at best and Simon Cowell told me I was not ready to be an artist.

When I came off that stage for the final time, I made a vow to myself that I would let this experience refine me, but not define me. I have come to realize that you don’t need everybody to approve of you. You just need one.

That was Marie Osmond!

She called and and invited me to feature on her new album, and on top of that, asked me if I would direct the video. I am truly gratetful for Marie;s kindness. I learned so much from her. She helped restore my confidence in my music abilities.

NEVER QUIT REACHING!

Don’t ever quit on your visions and dreams until you get what has been in you all along!

Music video by Marie Osmond performing Then There’s You (feat. Alex Boyé).

(C) 2016 Oliveme Record

Director: Alex Boye’
Cinematography: Bryce Johnson
Artist: Marie Osmond & Alex Boye’
Album: Music Is Medicine
Label: OliveMe Records
Release date: April 15th, 2016

Marie Osmond will unveil her first solo album in five years and just her second in more than 25 years this April with the release of Music Is Medicine.

“I’m a woman who kind of just follows her intuition, and it was like, ‘You need to record an album. You need to talk about life, about second chances and finding love again and the spiral that things can go through,'” says Osmond.

“And I’m like, ‘I’m old!’ You know, they don’t play women on the radio who are over 30. And it’s like, ‘Why record this album? Don’t do this.’ And everything within me logically says, ‘What? Why am I doing this?’

And everything in my heart and soul says ‘People need to know that it ain’t over. It’s just not over until the fat lady sings – and I have Nutrisystem.

So I’m singing.”

Alex Boye puts his Africanized spin on “Under the Sea”

The Little Mermaid vs Captain Jack Sparrow

We have seen Alex Boyé doing a fantastic tribal mashup of “Let it Go” from Disney’s Frozen. After several other successful, imaginative and fun mashups, he’s back with an Africanized interpretation of “Under the Sea” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

He’s also invited Captain Jack Sparrow in for a cameo just for kicks.

The video was filmed at Pirates cove in Boulder City, Neveda. The rapper was Maximo and Jack Sparrow was played by Jamey Anthony.

Alex was born in London, England, to parents who are both from Nigeria. Alex was converted to the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at age 16, and soon after served a mission in Bristol, England. After his mission is when he began to discover his love for performing and music. Since then, he has worked with and performed in many different venues.

Being Nigerian, and raised by his mother who grew up in Nigeria, the African culture was a big part of his life. For this reason, Alex has decided to incorporate his connection and love for his culture into his music.

Almost all of his music videos are Africanized, as he calls it, and show part of the African culture.

Alex’s love for his culture and decision to pursue what he enjoyed most- music and performing- is an example to all about pressing forward in life and doing what you love most. His fascination with African culture and music motivated him to follow his dreams, and because of this, his dreams have become a reality.

So many covers to Adele’s hit song “Hello” come out every day.

This is another one of them.

Alex Boyé is an artist that I’ve followed since I first heard him perform with The Piano Guys in Peponi.  His voice and talent as superb. His style definitely changes every song that he covers.

~~April 30, 2015~~ 

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Alex Boye’

“My goal is not to be famous, but to seek to be of value to the world, with a deeper purpose, and be led by God.”

People always ask me, “Why are you not more well known?”, or, “How come more people don’t know about your music?”, I’ve even had “Sorry, I’ve never heard about you. Ha Ha!”

Here is my response. “Stick around. Because I never give up!“. You will soon see me everywhere, then after awhile, you will be saying, “I’m tired of hearing and seeing that Alex Boye’ everywhere. Or you will say, “If I hear Alex Boye’s song one more time on the radio, I will kill myself.” (I’ve heard that said about many other artists music, so I know they will say it about me). My goal is not to be famous, but to seek to be of value to the world, with a deeper purpose, and be led by God. Fame brings with it a whole bunch of other challenges that most are not aware of. My goal is to be of value.

To be a musician with higher a purpose.

I’ve learned from spending time with celebs who have told me that being a musician for the sake of being rich popular and famous will NEVER bring happiness. (I’ve heard that in the scriptures somewhere too wink emoticon. It has been such hard work. But I LOVE what I do, and am so thankful and blessed to have a patient & understanding wife. That I get to use a medium I’m passionate about everyday. That there are so many people such as you who may be reading this, that have been great champions and supporters of what I do. I know my work and my music will continue to be inflated. I just pray that I won’t.

~~Show Me a Way Out~~

Original Song – Alex Boye’

~~Published on Apr 30, 2015~~

I am so pleased to announce that I have joined non-profit organization, Interweave Solutions as one of the board of directors. They do so much great work in front, and behind the scenes, and I feel a special connection to their service and mission to help individuals and communities in Africa and other parts of the world to stand on their own two feet. See press release below!

~Description~

Alex Boyé, musician and Youtube sensation, releases his latest video and original song “Show Me a Way Out” to raise money for Interweave Solutions, a non profit organization that helps people in developing countries create micro-businesses.

Previous videos released from the pop star have garnered as many as 60,000,000 views, and http://www.interweavesolutions.org is honored to be the recipient of such a powerful and moving endorsement from a pop star as successful as Alex Boyé.

“We met Alex late last year who shares our passion for helping people in Africa create self reliance for themselves,” says Dean Curtis, co-founder of Interweave Solutions, a non-profit organization with projects around the globe. “He understands our message more than just about any other entertainer on the planet.”

“I have been to Africa many times, and I can tell you that people don’t need handouts, they need a way out, and interweave can show them that!” Says Boyé.

~Alex’s mission statement~

Give a man a fish, he can feed his family for a day. TEACH a man to fish, he will feed his family for a lifetime.

Interweave Solutions helps to create their own viable micro-business, and solve their own problems in their own communities. That’s why, as an artist, I am so excited to support Interweave in their work.”
