Nigerian-American Youtube Sensation, Alex Boyé, Gives Us 2 New Life-Saving Songs

Alex Boyé

Alex Boyé is truly a multicultural, multigenerational, global artist! An independent 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; his new single, “Still Breathing,” picks up where his most recent, “Bend Not Break” left off. “Bend Not Break” is a song that encourages people considering suicide to look beyond their current circumstances and make a different choice, to bend and not break,” shares Boyé. “Still Breathing shares, the thoughts of someone who attempted suicide but survived. After some time, they recognize the gift of life again and are grateful that they’re still breathing.”

Both singles from his forthcoming album, Coming to Amerika, are songs of encouragement and hope created to save lives and inspired by a personal experience!

In mid-April and leading into Mental Health Awareness Month (May), Boyé will be embarking on a national tour carrying a message of hope and awareness to young people and teens struggling with mental illness and considering suicide.  The tour aligns with The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention’s #realconvos campaign during which Boyé, will bring #realconvos to high school, non-profits/community organizations who have partnered with his Bend Not Break Foundation. The following are events he’ll be participating in connected to suicide prevention and mental health awareness:

According to the CDC Vital Signs suicide is a leading cause of death in the U.S. with an estimated over 45,000 lives lost to suicide in 2016 and nearly 1,400,000 suicide attempts in 2017. This is more than entertainment, my music is ‘innertainment.’ Music that can change lives from the inside,” shares Boyé.  “Even if I can save just one, then we have done something greatWhen we encourage #realconvos about mental health and suicide, that’s how you get people to open up! As soon as the conversation begins, that’s when the light comes in. Sometimes all is takes is music, just one song can break through.”
