Biography

MSG is a remarkable gospel-singing ministry that is definitely setting trends and making a mark in the city of Philadelphia. Known across the country for their exciting, spiritual performances, mixed with a taste of today’s hip-hop culture, BJ Shores and MSG, (which stands for “message”) have become the unlikely messengers to get the word out to the souls lost in the streets.

Seventeen young adults, considered by some as one of the Philadelphia's most unique spiritual success stories, come together onstage as MSG to deliver a life changing performance. Led by one of the industry's most talented producers, BJ Shores, MSG’s energy is infectious, inspiring scores of young people to be as excited about God as they are.

BJ Shores, a spiritual success story himself, made the transformation from running the streets of the city, to now youth minister and minister of music of Sharon Baptist Church - T.W.I.S.T. (Teens Worship In Spirit & In Truth). The recent loss of his brother has intensified his passion for “new life” in a new way. Boldness, fearlessness, and never giving up were all lessons that were learned from the loss. “I want people of all ages to know that there’s a better way. Now since you’ve tried everything else in the world, try what we have to offer…JESUS,” says BJ. “You don‘t have to live the life you’ve been living any more. We are all about changing lives, and that’s what we try to accomplish with every performance…every song.”

As a ministry, MSG holds fast to the primary goal no matter the musical desire. One can often witness endless sessions of worship at an MSG performance. It is one of the key characteristics that separate this group from the pact. The MSG ministry will not and cannot function without weekly bible studies, which has served as the core of their rehearsals. Therefore, they have been on a four month layoff that consisted of a seven week consecration in which fasting and prayer where the key essentials in developing the ministry. “I believe that we need God before we can give God,” says BJ. Thus far through the ministry, peoples lives have changed, broken hearts have been mended, and souls have been saved.

Now, with a debut album release on his shoulders, BJ Shores is on a mission. His goal... their goal... is to change your life... with every word spoken, with every action witnessed.

There are big plans in store for this collective... and it's not just from the musical side.

Spiritually, the goal has been set for you...
ETERNAL LIFE.
We all want it... we all need help getting there.
