Who is IAM4GIVEN
Tell us about yourself and your music
My style of music is inspirational for all ages. It encourages, uplifts, and speaks life and hope to those who feel hopeless or even those who are doing well and want to stay lifted and energized; I believe everyone can use a little more hope. My style of music is very unique in how I deliver the word of God in a modern way by making it relatable to everyone by using my testimonies and what others go through in everyday life including their ups and downs.
Most of all, my music will always speak truth and faith and lead people closer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who is the Way, the Truth & Light.
Talk to us more about your latest release
Last year Thanksgiving holiday, I released my 2nd project call “The Gospel” which is very powerful.
It touches bible principles and breaks down scriptures but through rap music and melodies.
It entwines, the reality of today from the old testaments to the new testaments. It’s a great body
of work and everyone can enjoy and learn from.
My new single “Feel How I’m Feeling” will all be released on 07/31 on all digital media platforms.
What inspired you to write this release?
My record “Feel How I’m Feeling” was inspired by everything that has been and still is going on in the world;
such as social justice, police brutality, politics, and this unexpected pandemic with COVID 19.
This record brings awareness and gives you another perspective on all that is happening; and most of all
is brings hope and speak life in the midst of it all, because no matter what we go through we can always
keep our faith and trust in the Lord.
Describe the writing and recording process
My writing and recording process is very easy.
Before I even start to work on any music, I pray and get in the word of God. I ask the Lord
what book does he want me to read today and I read from 5 to 10 chapters in that book.
From there I go through beats and allow the Holy Spirit to flow through me to provide me with the message
he wants to be delivered. Everything I create in the studio comes directly from the Messiah and he gets all the Glory
because he blessed me with this gift and I’ve dedicated my life to Christ to only use it to further the Kingdom of God.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
At the beginning of the year, I was on a local tour in South Florida, which led me to a huge opportunity for July 25th.
Partnering up with Taking The City Movement; to open up for Lecrae artist 1Kphew who is signed to ReachRecords.
Unfortunately because of this unexpected pandemic, everything has been postponed.
I am currently open to all opportunities and definitely looking forward to getting back on the road.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
As an indie artist, I brand myself by using the current social media platforms; and pretty much
any other music promotion sites that I can brand myself. As of standing out from the rest of
the artist, that comes naturally. God has given everyone a spiritual gift or even multiple gifts and created them with
a uniqueness that only they can tap into. By that along, I stand out and never get to a place of comparing myself or competing.
Scripture says… 2 CORINTHIANS 10:12 For we dare not value or compare ourselves against those who flaunt themselves, for those among them who compare themselves are not wise.
GALATIANS 6:4-6 “Let each person examine his own work, and then he can take pride in himself alone, and not compare himself with someone else.”
I strive to be the best me as possible by always putting God in the center of it all.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Honestly, I listen to a lot of my own music from my first 2 projects to heard my growth from where I first started making inspirational gospel
music to now. But if I’m not listening to myself, it will be the Gospel Album that helped me realize being a Christ deliver and using my gift for his Glory isn’t bad at all.
Which is Lecrae 2013 Album “Church Clothes 2” following up with his single “Nuthin”. That album and single alone really gave me an eye-opener and changed my
heart about a lot of things.
Who are your biggest influences?
Jesus Christ is my biggest influence of them all.
As of other people and artist that motivates me and give that drive to keep pushing
and doing what I’m doing is totally different.
Tell us about your passions
My passion is to be able to use my gift to bring hope, love, peace, and laughter into the hearts of the people
and to spread the good news about Jesus Christ into the entire world; Winning one soul at a time.
What else is happening next in your world?
I’m honored to say God blessed me with beautiful and I got married last yr on my birthday. 04/13/2019
I’m forward to seeing what God is going to do in our life.
