Lexi, whose full name is Lexi Allen, is a natural talent who has been singing since she was a child growing up in her grandfather's church. Her 1990 debut, Call Me Lexi, caught many people's attention and launched a career that would expand into acting, comedy, and more.
Lexi met and married her producer Michael Allen who helped develop her writing and vocal ability to create her own sound. Following Michael's untimely death from cancer in 2004, Lexi had a son, but was without her husband, without focus, and without direction. But she wasn't without God.
God began to quickly step in and prove Himself to be Jehovah Jireh, as Lexi became the "face" of the Word Network. Two years later, the face of the broken widow was thrust before forty million households in the United States, seen by 38 million viewers in over 200 countries around the world as well, and Lexi began to blossom into a name that would be easily recognized.
As a praise and worship artist, Lexi has more to say than ever in her worship, because she recognizes that God has just begun to open the windows of heaven for her. Her 2012 album, Phenomenal, was produced after she signed with Malaco Music Group. The singles "Burn It All Down" and "Abide" from this album hit the Billboard Hot Gospel Songs charts, peaking at #20 and #14, respectively. In 2018, she signed with Motown Gospel and returned with her first new album in six years, Just Listen.
On her YouTube channel, she has created comedy videos dealing with subjects such as church culture, African-American culture, and parodies of well-known TV shows. She is also now remarried to television producer, Jason Prater.
