New Artist: Beckah Shae
Written by Christi Given | October 25, 2011
Beckah Shae is a Christian pop artist on the rise. She has been heard on Christian radio like The Fish 95.9 FM; has worked with famous Christian artist Toby Mac; was nominated this year for a Dove Award for her album “Life;” and released her fifth album “Destiny” on August 16, 2011.
Shae has also collaborated with Montell Jordan and other artists who are well known in the Christian hip-hop industry. She has kept up with the sounds of today and the popular music industry. One reason I like her is that she is standing up for godliness and righteousness as a leader in the music industry. Beckah Shae not only sends a great message, but she also has an amazing voice.
The goal of Shae’s new album “Destiny” is to awaken the soldiers of Christ. It also reminds us to focus on the Lord and our purpose, and to rise up in the line of the army we are in. Shae has a similar spiritual passion and vision to me regarding the next generation. I am so thankful there are musicians standing up for God and singing the truth!
One of Beckah Shae’s songs is called “Here in This Moment,” which is definitely a favorite of mine. The chorus and lyrics encouraged me so much and it brought me so much joy, I had tears in my eyes! Listen to “Here in This Moment” from Beckah Shae’s “Life” album.
One of my favorite songs on Shae’s new album is called “Gold.” It is based on trials and tribulations and says that when we go through the fire, we will come out as gold! This is in the book of Job: “But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.” –Job 23:10
The sound is so upbeat and makes you want to dance! Listen below and sing along, PI girls!
Beckah Shae also re-makes secular pop songs by artists like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Nicki Minaj, changing their lyrics to godly ones. Not only does she re-make popular songs, but she also does what she calls a “Scripture Snack,” where she and other artists like Montell Jordan beat box and collaborate on vocals.
Here is the “Pop Medley Remake” by Shae:
