Singer. Songwriter. Pianist. Mental Health Advocate.
Hi! My name is Marguerite Alexis. While I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, my ancestry hails from the Black/African, Caribbean/Latin and West Indian descent, which still influences much of my music today. My natural talent for music was discovered early at the young age of three and I grew up singing the Hymnals and Gospel music in church. I continued my passion for singing throughout my formative school years and continued through high school as well. I was asked to perform regularly at school gatherings, talent shows and various church and community events. As I ventured on to Williams college in Massachusetts, I was fortunate to be promoted to the Gospel Choir co-director and also sang solos for cultural and social justice events. My performance later in college extended to singing in a college band and performing at the local restaurant. My strongest musical influences are Neo Soul greats like Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild and more recently Solange. I also receive some of my inspirations from hip-hop legends like Common and Robert Glasper.
Apart from music, I am passionate about Wellness and Mental Health work. I aim to heal communities and create positive change through my mental health advocacy work with the National Alliance on Mental Illness Organization (NAMI). Part of my goal is to pursue a graduate education and one day become a therapist and life coach. I contribute my success in my life journey to my faith and love of God as well as my loving family; most notably, my mom Margaret, my 100 year old Grandma Lucille and my six siblings. To stay well, I walk, am an avid yoga student, and seek to find peace in all that I pursue. You can follow me on my social media platforms on Instagram @Iammargueritealexis, on Twitter @Iammargealexis and visit my Youtube Channel @Margeaf where you will find my music and uplifting, healing, and encouraging messages.

As my brotha' Dr. Cornel West says, “You can't lead the people if you don't love the people. You can't save the people if you don't serve the people.” Peace, Love, and Namaste. God bless. <3 :)
