Alex Boyé is truly a multicultural, multigenerational, global artist! With over 1 billion views on his YouTube channel, Boyé’s diverse blend of African-infused pop music and vibrant dynamic visuals have captured a loyal legion of online followers turning him into a viral sensation! While his viral videos of Africanized pop covers have been featured on Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, Fox & Friends, Jimmy Kimmel and more; it’s his powerful voice, showmanship, personality, and uniquely arresting performance style that has placed him in a lane of his own! A musician, actor, video director, humanitarian, and global visionary, Boyé calls his multi-cultural, multi-generational style, ‘pop music with an African twist.’
Boyé’s popularity will soar even higher with the release of his forthcoming LP, Coming To Amerika, produced by Grammy Award winning producers ‘Blac Elvis’ (Beyoncé, John Legend, Usher) and Neff-U (Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo, Dr. Dre, Justin Bieber) will be released by BFD via The Orchard!
Throughout his career, Boyé’s genuine concern and generosity toward others has been a central theme in his music. His latest singles, “Bend Not Break” and “Still Breathing” from Coming To Amerika are both songs of encouragement and hope created to inspire people struggling through difficult times. “Bend Not Break” is produced by K.C. Knight, executive produced Randy Jackson (“American Idol”) and penned by Jordan Powers & Alex Boyé. “Still Breathing” was co-written by Boyé and produced by Tha Aristocrats (DJ Khalid).
With the release of Coming To Amerika, Boyé hopes to bring Africa to America and release some pop hits in between!“My goal is to create music that’s more than entertaining; I’m creating innertainment – music you feel inside! I want to bring cultures together and impact all people!” shares Boyé.
ALEX BOYÉ, whose blend of African-infused pop music and dynamic visuals have led to millions of views on his YouTube channel, will perform a free concert on Thursday, May 21 at 6 p.m. PST in support of Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services’ Erasing the Stigma Campaign — a fundraising effort taking place throughout May, Mental Health Awareness Month.

As part of its Erasing the Stigma Campaign, Didi Hirsch earlier this month launched its STIGMA Handwashing Challenge on social media at #ErasingTheStigma and #StoppingTheSpread to highlight the importance of erasing stigma as people struggle with mental health challenges during the COVID-19 crisis. Didi Hirsch has posted videos of its 2020 Erasing the Stigma Awards honorees and other supporters, including Alex Boyé and Alex Freeman, participating in the challenge on its www.erasingthestigma.org website.
Alex Boyé has shared the stage with many notable artists including, Jay-Z, Tim McGraw, George Michael, Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake to name a few. He has raised money for many causes by way of his music through his message of positivity and perseverance in his lyrics. His single, “Bend Not Break” was written in support of suicide prevention. Alex is a dedicated, longtime supporter of Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services and is a recipient of Didi Hirsch’s 2019 Mental Health Ambassador Award for his work in erasing the stigma around mental illness, substance use and suicide and has performed at Didi Hirsch’s annual Alive & Running 5K for Suicide Prevention.

We also have on-site services at our three community-based clinics and all of our residential treatment centers.
