Born, raised and educated in the city of Detroit, Mae Alexander was born into a strict but religious family. She developed at an early age, love and compassion for the Lord. According to my now deceased parents, her walk with the Lord, started at the age of 4.

Her father started a family group of Minister Alexander and her three younger siblings called the “Smith Junior 4.”
