On Saturday, Dec. 7, Alex D. Banks II, a 17-year-old saxophonist, performed an hour long set, with a live band, in front of a packed house, during his “Christmas In The City” jazz concert at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

He wowed the audience with instrumental versions of classic Christmas carols such as “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “O Holy Night,” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” to name a few. After that he interacted with the crowd and performed several songs from his debut album, “Projections,” which is now available on iTunes.

“I felt great playing in my hometown,” said Alex after the show. “To actually see people enjoying and interacting with my music made me feel appreciated.”

But life hasn’t always been this inspirational to Alex. At birth, he was diagnosed with chronic asthma and given a one percent chance to live. By the grace of God, since picking up the saxophone, his complications with his asthma have decreased dramatically.

“Living asthma free feels like I have no limitations,” said Alex, extremely optimistic about his future. “Anything is possible when you put your faith in God.”
