     In almost every dialogue, every interview, every conversation, people ask me what advice I can share that might benefit dream chasers. That question always takes me back… to the place I was before the platform BET’s Sunday Best provided me.

    I’ve wanted this thing since I was three years old, when I first started singing. I always had such a desire to do well; I wanted it! I craved it! and was willing to rightfully do what ever it took to succeed. I remember cognitively questioning myself… What can I do to make this happen? Do I just wait around until I’m “discovered”?

    As years progressed, and I came in to contact with people of all walks of life; some highly respected and up in stature, others simply wise in nature; three points of advice were always drilled in me.

    # 1 –Keep God first. “Baby if you keep God first, everything else will fall into place!” I can hear them say… (smile)

    # 2- Be Yourself. “What the world is looking for, what society is looking for, and even what the industry is looking for, is something different; we don’t need another duplicate Lex.” they pleaded. Lastly, Seize every opportunity presented. Then I asked “but what about when there isn’t one? or I don’t see one?” “Create one.” they said. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard that one… “Seize every opportunity presented”. So what did I do? I auditioned for every talent show, I beg my parents to give me a shot at a performing arts school. And when I felt there wasn’t any opportunity? I created one. I uploaded YouTube videos, I made videos on my face book page, I even sang politely outdoors.

    When the opportunity came for me to audition for Sunday Best, I was honestly hesitant.

    Fear and intimidation suffocated me, and I became extremely skeptical… but I remembered what I wanted, and where I wanted to be.

    #3 -Faith without works is dead. You have to put some works behind what you’re believing God for! I’m so glad that I seized opportunity of the wonderful platform that Sunday Best provided me. I may not have won the title “Sunday Best”, but I’m eternally grateful for what God has done through my press!
