Terrence Ford, better known as his stage name “GodFrame,” is an artist who believes that music is more than a collection of sounds – but a tool that God can use to change lives. As a Christian rapper, singer, and producer, GodFrame hopes his music does just that.
It was music that first helped GodFrame realize who Jesus was and that he was not a made-up fairytale. “My mom raised me in church, so I was always around gospel music,” he says. “I remember being 8 or 9 years old, sitting in on a choir rehearsal, and out of nowhere the lyrics to one of the songs hit me right in the heart. I don’t remember the words, but I remember the Lord telling me something like ‘these words are true — and I love you.’ The next thing I know, I was crying uncontrollably. Everybody at church thought something was wrong with me, but I was just overcome with joy.”
GodFrame (which means made in God’s image) had already fallen in love with music at an early age — beat-boxing and drumming on pots and pans, then later learning the piano and saxophone. But as his talent for music expanded, so did his love for God.
Often taking listeners on a transparent journey through his own stories of coming to Christ and overcoming fatherlessness, pornography addiction, suicidal thoughts, and more — all while melodically rapping and singing over a variety of genre-bending, Pop-Rap beats, GodFrame aims to help people understand their identity, purpose, and relationships through the lens of the gospel.
