Beacon Light is a rare breed of Hip-Hop artist whose performances range from cracking playful jokes and performing party songs to sharing his deepest pain with his listeners. His commanding stage presence combined with personal honesty and openness results in both high energy concerts as well as intimate worship.
“Life is full of highs and lows,” says Beacon, “I try to make music that honestly reflects those moments. From my albums to my live shows, I want to take people on a musical journey that glorifies Jesus and embodies redemption. My life was a mess before Christ. I was sexually abused, confused about who I was, and very angry at God; but Jesus took me, embraced me, and showed me how to live. My life is better ONLY because of Him."
Beacon Light's latest album, Open Eyes, is his most influential yet. Open Eyes hosts a series of stand-out songs, including the hit single "Overload", which made it’s debut on the Billboard Christian Radio charts. Included on the album is a powerful rendition of "Jesus Loves Me" in which Beacon shares his story of sexual abuse as a child. The childhood hymn combined with Beacon's heartfelt message have been powerfully sweeping across the world inspiring people to share their own stories of redemption.
Seeing lives change is what keeps Beacon energized to pursue his call in music. "Its amazing news when you hear that your song is a daily reminder for someone to not cut themselves,” Beacon remarks. "Or that your video encouraged someone to tell their Pastor about the sexual abuse going on in their lives and seek healing in Jesus. Those are the moments that remind me why I make music."
