Scientology Helped Singer Alex Price Keep her Footing When Others Floundered
Singer Alex Price says personal integrity kept her on track as a teen and accounts for her success in marriage and career. Her profile is one of 200 “Meet a Scientologist” videos available on the Scientology website at www.scientology.org.
“I really believe in speaking your mind and being true to yourself,” says singer Alex Price.
Captivating audiences with her 3 ½-octave range in genres from jazz to country, Price has been performing in venues from local coffee shops to the Vancouver International Jazz Festival since her teens. In 2002 she became part of the pop musical group Velvet Empire which was signed to Lone Eagle Music and distributed by Universal Music Canada.
Born into a family of Scientologists in Vancouver, BC, and raised with the religion’s precepts, Alex feels her understanding of life kept her grounded when others in her industry were floundering.
“Integrity, honesty and a sense of ethics are natural parts of my life,” she says. “They have kept me on track and kept me pointed in the right direction.”
Where she would sometimes run into problems and conflicts with people around her, Scientology training helped her understand why people act as they do and prompted her to resolve these issues and take more responsibility.
“Now all my friends come to me wanting advice,” she says. “I’m sort of known for that now. And I can actually help them.”
Price met husband Jeff L’Allier on the Freewinds—the Scientology religious retreat at sea—where she frequently appears as guest singer at events. Currently living in Vancouver, the couple plan to move to Clearwater, Florida, the spiritual headquarters of the Scientology religion.
Price also runs an agency in Vancouver that staffs and produces events ranging from trade shows to food and wine tastings, and she is studio manager for a photography studio that specializes in wedding photography.
“Scientology has enabled me to maintain my perspective when things get confused and agitated,” says Price. “And best of all, it has given me the ability to help my friends.”
