Staff report



VERSAILLES — Alexis Gomez will be the special musical guest at the Versailles Christian Church for the worship services at 9 and 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 13.

In the spring of 2015, Gomez showed America her talent as she competed in “American Idol, Season XIV.” She made it to the Top 16, being one of the Top 8 girls due to her stage presence, energy and star-like quality, all combined with her powerful vocals.

Gomez grew up in the Dayton area and has been singing and playing music for as long as she can remember. She plays guitar, piano and dabbles around with a few other instruments to include banjo, bass and drums. Her songwriting has been recognized in recent years as she has won a number of local contests where’s she’s been given the opportunity to showcase some of her original music.

She plays locally with her band, The Mad River Band, as well as with a variety of bands in Nashville, Tennessee, on the Broadway strip. “Playing and singing with so many talented artists in Nashville has helped me so much! I think surrounding yourself with musicians like that, really is what will make you a better artist,” she said. Recently she has performed with national artists Lee Greenwood, Clint Black, Montgomery Gentry, Lorrie Morgan, Aaron Tippen and others.

Gomez is one of the worship leaders at SouthBrook Christian Church in Miamisburg, her home church since she was a child. “I work hard at this, but at the end of the day, I know this is a gift that God has given me.” she said. “I try to always remember that and thank God every chance I get.”
