Spiritual rap music is what sets Forgiven John of Jesus apart from other contemporary rap artists.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Most artists enter the world of music by loving or growing up with it. Or it’s in their blood. Or someone turned them to it and they learned to make it their passion.
With music artist Forgiven John of Jesus it was divine intervention.
No stranger to an environment of violence, having lived in the inner city and becoming a member of a gang, Juan De Jesus faced a dire reality on a daily basis. And then an unfortunate incident changed his life forever. ‘One night some gang brothers wound up killing two members of our own gang. Even though I didn’t see the crime firsthand, I was the driver of one of the cars that was with them during the time it occurred. I ended up falling as an accomplice and was arrested in 1998 for conspiracy to commit murder in the Second Degree’.
For two years, Juan was incarcerated and he awaited trial. His family and friends doubted he will ever get out. Left to his own devices in jail, Juan De Jesus the lost lamb became found – thanks to God – for He changed his life completely. Juan wanted to transform himself – not just as a person but in the way that he lived. He then took the name Forgiven John of Jesus and learned how to rap. He entered Bible College and was now a Bible College Teacher. ‘My life now is being about my Father’s business. God is real. I
know for a fact. No matter what anyone says, I am a living testimony’, he says.
To date, besides being a prolific rap artist, Forgiven John of Jesus helps prevent youth from joining street gangs. He visits churches and communities to share the Gospel through rap and rhymes. ‘I want to help motivate and encourage all youth to walk the true path with the Lord Jesus Christ’. And through listening to Forgiven John of Jesus’ music, you will not only be entertained but most importantly, SAVED.
