Bio: Da' Alternative
Da Alternative for a Blessed Generation

"Da Alternative", an upcoming Holy Hip Hop artist, has progressed his urban lyrical mastery to a level that can only be obtained by a love and honor of Christ.

With a crystal clear delivery and rhymes that spark both imagination and praise, up and coming Gospel hip-hop artist and New York native Da' Alternative is leading the way for a blessed generation who want the truth in both music and ministry. Dubbed 'Da Alternative' for a reason, Da' Alternative offers a fresh sound and message to the growing community of hip-hop fans and supporters.

Those that are young in age or just young at heart can't escape the musical appeal of Da' Alternative's beats and the spiritual appeal of his lyrics. While most of his hip-hop influences are mainstream, which helped to perfect his use of symbolism and metaphor in his rhymes, Da' Alternative sites gospel greats such as Fred Hammond, Yolanda Adams, and Tonex as being most influential in his style of ministry. "I love Tonex because he allows the world to experience all of him, the good, the bad, everything. He doesn't mind putting himself out there or speaking about his past."

And Da' Alternative's past didn't always include gospel music. After spending a few years as a mainstream artist, Da' Alternative began his Gospel hip-hop career after writing and performing the lead song in the Billy Holiday Theater production of the hit play, "He's Here" in 2001. Enthused by the spiritual response he received from combining his love of God with his love of hip-hop, Da' Alternative continued on the path of developing his ministry as a Gospel hip-hop artist.

"I don't pretend to be "holier than though". I'm still the same laid back, fun loving crazy dude, with more knowledge about Christ and his meaning in my life. Its time for me to share what he's been to me with the world, especially the youth,"? stated Da' Alternative And share he does - at venues ranging from churches to community colleges to resorts.

Da' Alternative is currently working on a double CD project with LTC Music label mate and Linda B. Scheduled for released in 2007, the project represents the best of both worlds. Wanting to capture an audience that spans generations, the joint venture will feature the Praise & Worship & R&B style gospel harmonies of Linda B. Da' Alternative's portion will focus on communicating the importance of repentance, redemption, and rejuvenation - all in his characteristic imaginative style.

Already creating buzz, Da' Alternative's singles "Opportunity Taken"? and "Da Rapture" are catching on. Da' Alternative will showcase at the 2007 Holy Hip Hop Music Awards in Altanta, GA. He has received national recognition for his song writing capabilities - placing 1st in the "2005 Bump My Song Live"? competition and also receiving an Honorable Mention Certificate from the 11th Annual Billboard Song Contest.

Whatever praise he receives for his talent, it is the gift of being able to uplift, encourage, and entertain the next generation that Da' Alternative finds most important. "I am very passionate about enlightening the Youth. I feel that it's my job to show them that walking in the path of righteousness doesn't mean your fun life ends and you become this stagnant being - instead your life becomes more fulfilling."

Da Alternative's current singles, "Da Rapture", "Opportunity Taken", "I Can Do All Things Through Christ", and "Since I Met You Jesus" is receiving a wide recognition in the industry due to it's unique style and production.

With upcoming performances, you can expect to see more national performances by "Da Alternative". It's no surprise that "Da Alteranative" is a star on the rise while looking into the eyes of Christ!
