Biography

An unlikely story stands behind the man known by many as "Noah". From Vancouver, Washington to a leader in the movement of urban reform, a rocky road provides a window into the grace he experienced through out his life, with every situation molding him into the artist and leader that he is today. Born and raised by his mother and father in a middle class community on the east side of Vancouver, Noah grew up going to church with 5 brothers. As he grew with so many siblings in one house he had to compete for everything, which gave him a competative spirit. He would come home from church and reach out to his community at the age of 5 with the bible on the block. At the age of about 8 his family stopped going to church. Noah then started to look for other avenues to become involved with others. At the age of 11 he was smoking cigarettes and marajuana before and after elementary school. At that time he was introduced to North East Community Fellowship Foursquare where he was adopted into the family in Portland and that is where he was called to the alter and gave his life to Christ and shortly after was baptized along with his 4 brothers. He didnt understand what he needed to do to fully commit to the will of God. As Noah attended church there he still didnt have the best choice in friends and Portland became home for him. At the age of 16 his parents divorced and he lived with his father as his mother walked out on him and his 5 brothers. He then started skipping school and at almost 18 he was kicked out of his home and dropped out of school. Things werent easy for him growing up as he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, he had to stay busy. He moved around from house to house, staying with friends and family chasing women, partying, and drinking. He then met Chaos, a secular artist from Portland, who he ran with in the persuit to bring "LIVINGSTONE ENTERTAINMENT" out of the Northwest. Four years later he was murdered in Vancouver, Washington, leaving Noah with a reality check to change his life and really find out what it means to commit to Gods will. At 20 years old in search of changing he began selling cars for the money and stopped recording music. Still not fully committed to Christ he has a versatile background and cultural awareness he carries with him and the street life he idolized and pursued. Along the way, like many in the inner city, he took to rapping as a way of communicating his mind. It wasn't until after high school that his hobby became a passion after his hip hop background was redeemed by Jesus Christ. As he was making good money he started to record again, recording a few Gospel Hip Hop tracks he still felt disconnected from God because of how he was living. At the age of 23 he got married and started to create a family, which gave him an open eye of Gods love even more after his first born Elijah. His world was flipped upside down as the Holy Spirit convicted him of his sin and need for a Savior. That day he was rescued by the Lord and began following after Christ. July 31st 2009 he quit the wolves in sheeps clothing car business. Almost instantly his renewed heart spilled over to do what God created him for. Its a challenge to walk away from what was pleasing to him for what is pleasing to Christ. Calling Vancouver home, Noah remained content using his gifts of speaking and rapping, but the Lord would have different plans and soon he began working on his debut "40 Dayz 40 Nightz". Pouring out a genuine discussion of life issues, pain and passion, unashamed pursuit of Jesus Christ. He will be released to the world where he quickly will be noted as an emcee that would meet listeners where they are by delivering transparent, relatable, and impacting messages. As Noah soon will make his mark in the music industry, he realized the stage isnt enough. He wants to see deeper impact in urban culture. There needed to be a culturally relevant and biblically solid resource center to help train the next generation. Founding of EternalLife Ministries in 2005, the non-profit organization will be partnering with organizations to equip local leaders with culturally relevant tools and media projects designed to strengthen communities with the word of God. EternalLife Ministries is another vital piece in the larger vision of seeing a reformation in urban culture. Since formation, Noah will release the groundbreaking album 40 Dayz 40 Nightz led by the single 'Dont B Surprized'. 40 Dayz 40 Nightz will slowly spread to the mainstream market with other hits aimed to build an audience of disciples. A High School drop out, Noah now resides in the inner city of Vancouver, one of the nations most fastest growing cities. A movement is brewing around the country with hungry, unashamed believers popping up in inner city communities everywhere. Noah is humbled to be a part of leading others towards Christ so that lives can be changed forever just like his changed. With new avenues and strategic partnership
