Alex Boyé became an American citizen on February 22nd, 2012. Alex, along with 187 others, participated in a naturalization ceremony in the Jeanne Wagner Theater on February 22nd to take the oath and become citizens of the United States. Following the oath, Judge Sam recognized Alex Boyé in the audience and invited him to perform the national anthem as a new U.S. citizen.
Alex went on stage and gave a tearful and enthusiastic performance of “The Star Spangled Banner.”
On June 5th he released Calling America, a collection of five patriotic songs which were handpicked by Boyé to reflect his tender feelings about this country.
The namesake track of the album, “Calling America”, is an original song written by Alex. He started writing the song on September 11, 2001, but didn’t finish it until the day he became an American citizen.
The album also includes “Make Them Hear You”, which Alex performed at Glenn Beck’s Restoring Courage Event in Jerusalem fall of 2011. He earned national attention for his passionate performance.
