YB

YB is originally from Pine Bluff, AR, but has spent most of his life on the road, not quite belonging in any one place. Despite a challenging upbringing as one of 8 children in a single mother home, YB found the presence of God at a young age. However, he remained wary of Christianity for many years because of the high commitment he knew it would require following Christ.

It wasn’t until his college years, when a local college pastor in Camden, AR paid for YB to go to a Passion conference, that he decided that “his life needed reworked.” YB surrendered all of himself, including his love for music, to Christ, and God began to rework him from the inside out. Through music, mentors, and his relationship with his now-wife, Tammy, YB found his call to pastoral ministry, as well as a burning passion for using music for impacting the lives of the next generation of God’s soldiers.

Over the years, YB has been determined to release fresh, engaging content to the youth of this generation. He debuted his first Christian Hip Hop album “Salvation” in 2014 and after a string of grabbing releases, YB went on to make a statement in March of 2018 with the release of “GSHS2” which peaked at 20 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel charts! Amid the 2020 pandemic, YB and his team has not missed a step, releasing several records, including “Provision” which charted peaked at #30 on the Christian & Gospel Charts.

In addition to spreading his love for Christ and music as a touring artist, YB also serves as a staple in the community, where he leads outreach opportunities partnering with the local church.

Ken the Messenger

Ken the Messenger, born Kendell Willis, is an inspirational songwriter and hip-hop artist on a mission to bring the gospel to the ghetto. Being the grandson of a Bishop, Ken was raised with one foot in the rough streets of Chicago, and the other foot in the church.

Today he strives to bridge the gap by allowing faith and love to meet people where they are, with music that could be played in the club, yet moving enough to be played on Sunday morning for all ages. God is present in every aspect of life, and Ken chooses to speak on it through music that you could also “turn up” to, without being boxed into any genre.

“If we can’t get them in the church to hear God’s message, then we gotta bring God’s message to them.”

Ken has performed over 75 shows (Chicago, Atlanta, Nashville, Las Vegas, and Indiana) and has opened for Tasha Page-Lockhart, The Walls Group, Anthony Brown and Group TherAPy, and Nia Allen. Ken was also nominated for a Chicago Music Award in 2021 for Best New Entertainer and was formerly on the Chicago-based management team of Grammy Award-winner, Jonathan McReynolds.

Nemo Jones 314

Nehemiah Holley aka NemoJones314, was born in St.Louis Missouri. Raised in a middle class/lower class place called U-City, same place which well known Recording Artist Nelly arose from. His love for music began when his parents were called to pastor at the age 11 they bought a building to fellowship in & it had an old drum set which his father said he could fix up and have. Thus his musical journey began. As he began to grow older, entering middle school & high school his love for God grew cold as he entered his teenage years. He began to try to fit in as a preacher’s kid. But after being introduced to hip-hop at the age of 14, being influenced by the raps, imagery & culture of it, He felt it was social pressure to be like the other kids who also was being influenced by it. Which led him to the streets, drinking, selling & using drugs, partying & womanizing. His love of music never stop. After so many years trying to succeed as a secular artist being frustrated by God because of the calling & purpose of his life, he totally surrendered his life whole heartily to Jesus & now uses all his gifts & talents to serve God by impacting hip-hop & pop culture with the gospel & truth of God’s word.

His career went even further by touring the US, England, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, and Trinidad. He was featured on the MTV circuit tour and hosted an episode of “Sucker Free Sunday.” Despite the success in the secular media, David Veira decided to leave it all behind to follow his calling in Christ. Several tragedies in his life, including the loss of his beloved mother, cemented the call on his life; propelling him to use his life experiences to create his music and hone his ability to identify with others. As a Christian Hip Hop artist, he has shared the stage with fellow Christian artists such Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Viki Winans, Hezekiah Walker, and Byron Cage.

However, it is his love for Christ that keeps him grounded. Don’t be fooled by the “Christian” in this Hip-Hop artist, he does not limit his craft to the four walls of the church. He gauge’s every situation by performing in Public schools, Correctional facilities, Youth Centers, Clubs, Bars, Nursing Homes, Parks, and many other types of places. He truly goes beyond age, race, religious denomination and affiliation, and musical preference to spread the message of the gospel and the vision in his heart. What is most impressive is that people receive it with open arms.

Gauge is currently working on his third project, which is true to his character, is full of life lessons.

The foundational word that he carries with him as a reminder of his call to the millennial generation is for them to “Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come. And the years draw near when you say, ‘I have no pleasure in them’” (Ecclesiastes 12:1).
