My name is Azrael. I’m 24 years old. I had a rough, abusive, neglectful childhood growing up.

I was separated from my mom when I was 4, never met my dad till 12. Growing up, I never had trust for others, because I promised I would never let someone hurt me again. I got in a lotta trouble in school, and although I was quite intelligent for my age, I often used it for nefarious purposes. When I got to my teens I started going to youth group, where I met my pastor/spiritual father, Jeff. I have no doubt God intertwined our paths, as I started going to the church the year he started there. Of course, I didn’t trust him at first and would do things he didn’t approve of to test and see if he would abandon me like everyone else. But he never did, he never gave up on me. I experienced God’s love for the first time through Jeff.

I gave my life to the Lord on February 6th, 2011. since then I’ve been in treatment 8 times, jail 4 times, been in many fights. But the Lord has been faithful and brought me through it all. Now I just wanna make music that will help others who are in the same places, that glorifies the Lord. If money comes with this, cool. But if just one person gets saved through my music, I will have accomplished my goal.
