Growing up in the midst of desertion, racism, rejection, and failure, Point5 persevered through it all and signed his first record deal at the age of 18, touring with the likes of Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, Baby Bash, and more. After discovering that money, fame, and women were not what he needed to fill the void in his life, hewalked away from it all to pursue the higher calling of Christ. Now he stands as a representative of endurance and character. Point5is traveling the world and creating music unlike anything in the industry. His music is deep, his performance is engaging, and his ministry is undeniably effective. Simply put, heis doing something that has yet to be done;using music to fuel a revival in the hearts of people all across the world.
