For Detroit, Michigan-based gospel recording Audra ”Dodi” Alexander, singing is a manifestation of a divine gift. The depth of her soulful voice is matched only by the power and passion of her performance. Born and raised in Lansing Michigan, family and friends noticed early on that there was something magical about Dodi and her voice. As early as the age of eight she was writing songs in hopes of one day being able to inspire others through her gift. Upon her arrival in Detroit, she joined the gospel Adoration ’N Prayze. That experience launched her onto a larger stage where she began to sing background for world-renowned artist such as the Clark Sisters, Karen Clark-Sheard, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Amp Fiddler, Vicki Winans, Charlie Wilson, Chaka Khan and Ne’yo to name a few. Pairing with long-time friend Pamela Taylor, Dodi under the direction of producers Steve Corbin and “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson, released the self-titled album “Pam & Dodi” in 2002. To her credits are roles in “Why Do Good Girls Like Bad Boys”, “I Won’t Be the Other Woman”, “I will Always Love My Momma”, and “If These Hips Could Talk”. “My music is my way of continually giving GOD the glory,” Dodi says, “He is the reason for my gift.”
