Biography

In a generation where most of our youths turn to gangs so that they can fit in, Christopher Robert Daniels does the complete opposite – he turns to God. Born October 18th 1982 in the ghettos of St. Louis, Missouri, Christopher sought to be different. At the age of 14, he found himself walking towards the altar to render himself useful to the Father up above. Amidst the world around him, sex being the sole purpose of the kids his age, he felt God wanted more from him to reach them.

Inspired by the death of a mentee in 2002, Chris D started rapping and recording but as life would have it, there were many setbacks which caused him to be out of the studio. After a while of absence, Chris is finally back and going harder for God in his lyrics especially on the album “Vertical Beginnings” where he spits nothing but the truth. You can hear his raw authenticity on tracks such as “Change My Name”, “We Need You” and “His Story”.

Although he has experienced his fair share of trials and tribulations throughout his youth and young adult life, he has come to learn that “he is not just a part of a youth ministry, but that his life as a youth is a ministry”- a direct quote taken from his “Chronicles of Change” book series that is presently available on www.amazon.com. Chris D is proving that Christian rap can go the distance while still being influential enough to speak to your heart and your soul especially when you’re seeking a vertical beginning with the Father.

Lyrics

Change My Name

Written By: Christopher aka Chris D.

verse 1
Its 3am and I'm in a cold sweat
and all my past failures breathing down my neck
and all the mistakes that I made since the 9th grade
over shadow my accomplishments and make them fade away
and everyday feels like the night time... when's the right time
to get past all this hurt and claim what is mine
and everyday feels like the night time... when's the right time
to get past all this hurt and claim what is mine
I struggle to my feet, before I hit the floor
GOD do you hear me?! I cried out to the LORD
I really need you to come in my life and change some things
Like all this shame and give me the joy that your name brings
and everything that I see in the reflection of me is guilt, lust, pain, man and misery
and everything that I see in the reflection of me is guilt, lust, pain, man and misery

verse 2
You changed Saul to Paul, Abrahm to Abraham
And Jacob to Israel and then you gave him the land
From Simon to Peter and on that rock you made your church
and told Jeremiah you knew him before his birth
You took a harlot in Jericho and showed her her worth
and took a virgin and mapped out your son's birth
You took Gideon, the weakest of the weakest fam
and declared him a warrior to restore you land
you made the blind see and healed who was sore
you said you would do it for me, if i knock on that door
you made the blind see and healed who was sore
you said you would do it for me, if i knock on that door
so GOD I'm knocking asking you to take this pain, and GOD I'm knocking begging you to take this shame
So GOD I'm knocking asking you to take this rain, and GOD I'm knocking asking..... OHHHH

Chorus:
I've been gone for far too long. Can I come back and change my name again? Can I come back and change my name again? I'm tired of running! Can I come home again...
