Lexi Listening Party
March 18, 2005 – Detroit Gospel.com was in the house at Christian Tabernacle Church in Southfield, Michigan where Lexi held a special listening party to celebrate the release of her latest CD entitled “A Praise In The Valley.” The Detroit native released her new CD on March 8, 2005. It was released on the Holy Music record label, which is owned by former world heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield.
The evening was quite a treat to the nearly packed house at Christian Tabernacle Church. The funny and talented comedian Broderick Rice was the MC for the evening. The contemporary gospel group Jes’Us opened for Lexi and got the crowd warmed up with several of their songs. Then Lexi treated the audience, which included family, friends, fans, and well wishers with an evening of great gospel music. We got a first-hand sample of the new project, which appears to be positioned to do well. The album includes an all-star cast of guest artists which includes William Murphy, Kim Burrell, and Dave & Nicole Binion. Several of the tracks “He Got Up” and “Testify” are sure to be a hit with fans of Lexi. The listening party was well attended as many Detroiters came out to show their support for Lexi and enjoy her beautiful voice. Many in the audience were standing on their standing feet and praising the Lord for most of the evening.
The Word Network was present and recorded the concert for broadcast on their network. Lexi is busy these days because she also works for The Word Network as host of her own show, which is called “One On One with Lexi.”
