Read more about Alexis Spight Biography
Although born in Buffalo, Alexis spent her formative years in Houston, Texas. Alexis was interested in music from an early age, starting to sing in the church choir when she was only three, and writing her own music as a way of coping with life difficulties at the age of 12. At that time, she had her first tour, performing alongside her siblings. She has stated that she had always known that she would pursue a music career when she grew up, as it was her number one interest. When it comes to her education, Spight attended the Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts, and went on to compete in ”American Idol” and “The X Factor” prior to performing and participating in ‘’Sunday Beast’’. Reportedly, when she first auditioned for the previously mentioned show, she was overawed by the thousands of other talented people, thinking that she wouldn’t make it into the competition. However, her strong vocal skills earned her a spot amongst the other participants, and she eventually had notable success in the show, finishing as a first runner-up in the finale to only Joshua Rogers, and so starting her net worth.
Due to her success in the previously mentioned competition, her career skyrocketed as she released her single ‘’Imagine Me’’, distributed by Music World Gospel in 2012. The song ended up on the Hot Gospel Songs chart, and peaked at #22nd later on. This was followed by the release of her debut album entitled ‘’L.O.L.: Living Out Loud’’ in March 2013, created in collaboration with Music World Gospel. Speaking of the critical reception, and the success among audiences, it peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums Chart and earned her nominations for New Artist of the Year and Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year at the Stellar Music Awards, certainly boosting her net worth.
After this success, she released her second studio album, ‘’Dear Diary’’ on 28 August 2015, this time for Entertainment One Music, collaborating with artists such as Pierre Medor, Jamar Jones and Travis Malloy, who produced her song ‘’All The Glory’’, During the course of five years she performed alongside singers such as Kierra Sheard, Kim Burrell, Mali Music and others, and toured in the UK, Canada and The Bahamian Islands.
Alexis share little information about her romantic relationship, if any – there aren’t even any rumours, yet! She grew up in a music-oriented and religious family, often singing with her siblings as a child, which obviously had an impact on her career and genre of choice. She is active on social media websites such as Twitter and Instagram, and has the army of more than 130,000 followers on the latter.
