DETROIT, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexi, gospel singer and host of The Word Network's hit TV show, "The Lexi Show," will appear as the special guest for Eagan Orthodontics' annual Summerfest celebration.  Lexi, a Stellar Awards nominee with a powerful and breathtaking voice, is set to perform songs from her bestselling album "What Heaven Hears."

The annual Summerfest celebration is just one way in which the Eagan Orthodontics staff and family show their appreciation to metro Detroit for supporting Eagan Orthodontics.  It is a special day that gives them a chance to enjoy, have fun, and talk with the people they care about and serve.    

"Our family has always given back to the community and we want to continue that legacy, especially during these tough economic times," says Dr. Eagan.
