GOSPEL RAP MINISTER BROTHAREMIXX
What good is a message if you cant understand it? There are many rappers, but few speakers, and even less that have been called to be preachers. Allow me to introduce to you, rapper, speaker, and preacher...BrothaRemixx. With his emotionally charged beats and easily understood lyrics, it is clear that BrothaRemixx presents the pure, uncompromised Word of God. From his victory inspired anthem, “I Will Not Lose”, to his worship inspired, “Love to Praise Your Name”, to his thought provoking story, “Is This A Dream”, BrothaRemixx presents a gospel rap that transcends age and defies expectations.
BrothaRemixx, also known as Teon Willis, was born and raised on the Jersey shore, spending most of his time either at the beach or at church. At the age of 9, he wrote and preached his first sermon with little to no help from his parents. By the age of 12, he was serving as a pastor’s aide, singing in the choir, and working with the church youth group. In all of this, music played an important role in his life, although he wouldn’t know how important until much later.
In 2002, Teon adopted the name BrothaRemixx and joined the gospel rap group, Poetical Soul. It was here with fellow group members, Huntblazin and Blessed Priest, that God began to stir up the gift that lie dormant within him. And although the members got along amazingly well (and remain great friends to this day), BrothaRemixx found himself on the road to a solo project.
Released in 2007, BrothaRemixx’s debut album “Gospel.Rap.Music.” was immediately an unexpected success. It received rave reviews and was well received by pastors and church leaders, many of which attested to NEVER having enjoyed rap music before. When asked why they enjoyed the music so much, the most common response was about the clarity and sincerity of the message. “I could understand what he was saying and knew he was talking about Christ from the start!”
In addition to the music, BrothaRemixx is involved in other areas of ministry as well. In October 2007, BrothaRemixx received his ministerial license. He serves as the youth minister at his local church, Christ Worship Center, and in August 2008, he began Stand Outreach Ministries, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ on the streets of Asbury Park, NJ.
BrothaRemixx is the 2008 McDonald’s Gospelfest winner for the Gospel rap category, and has shared the stage with such artists as Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin, and Vickie Winans, but his music ministry has only just begun. It’s not easy to have a sound that is well received by both gospel and secular groups, but God has blessed BrothaRemixx to walk that line and be a voice in this generation!
