What: Alex Boye chronicles how he got to where he is and where he sees himself going. He joined the church when he was 16 (after meeting with sister missionaries), served a mission, joined a successful European boy band called "Awesome," and eventually found his place in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Quote: "'Being in the choir was difficult and intimidating at first,' said Boyé, one of three black singers in the group. 'I felt out of place. So many times, I wasn't going to come back, but I kept going. After a while, I felt a connection to the choir members. Even though we're from different backgrounds, we're all shooting for the same goal -- using music to bring souls to Christ.' "
Reaction: Awesome (and I don't mean the boy band).
