Featured Album: Alexander Morris of the Four Tops wins us over with "January"

He has been an active part of the music world for decades, but many soul music fans have only recently gotten to know the name Alexander "Lex" Morris, the current lead singer for the iconic quartet The Four Tops.

Lex has been working in the R&B and Gospel worlds as a singer, songwriter and producer for years, while also serving as a minister who runs Los Angeles based J. Alexander Morris Ministries. But it was a call from Four Tops co-founder Duke Fakir two years ago that led Lex to the front of the stage with one of the most famous acts in soul music history. And his expressive vocals and stage presence have fit like a glove for longtime Four Tops fans.

Lex has also continued to record his own music, and he has an incredible new album that combines a classic soul vibe with powerful messages that hit home.
