Artist Information Biography Faith4 is a contemporary Christian band out of Holt MI, They have been together now for 3 years but have been performing music most of their lives. Our Music Ministry is first in foremost in our lives. Our mission is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our music, our lives and teachings of the word of God. We strive to bring souls to Him with each and every note He gives us to perform. We are members of the MT Hope Church under Pastor Dave Williams in Lansing MI. Our journey all began at a secular band competition that they competed in for the first time together with the addition of their new drummer Jason Kime under the group name then called In-One. Knowing that the Christian music they will be performing might not go over well with a secular crowd, they soon discovered that simply was not the case. God had his hand on them this day, for in fact, They won the competition and were signed shortly after to Risen Records. Since then they have been working with AL Lopez, who is now their Manager, Label President, and Songwriter. Together they launched their new project called 'I Believe' penned by AL Lopez & Faith 4. We have released 3 singles and have had great success on both Christian, secular, and Country Christian Radio. Our debut single 'God Bless Our Soldiers' climbed to #14 on the Country Christian Charts in Powersource magazine October of 2007 and their single 'My Everything' debuting on the Indie Christian Charts at #23 in Christian Radio Weekly Magazine November of 2007. Faith4's music shows definite influences of Contemporary Christian, Gospel, & Latin music having a combined feel of such artist as Isreal Houghton, Casting Crowns and Salvador to name a few. Thier live performances are nothing short of amazing and every ear in the room is blessed with thier annointing. We have been blessed with the opportunity to perform with some of Christian Music's hottest acts such as: Steven Curtis Chapman, Point of Grace, and Michael W Smith at some of the largest Christian Festivals in the United States such as the Unity Festival in Muskegon MI . One thing that sets us apart from other acts is that our commitment to our God, our great nation, and our Troops. With the War in Iraq going on right now and with Faith4's Manager's son returning home from a tour of duty in Iraq for the US Army. Faith4's tribute to our soldiers song called 'God Bless Our Soldiers' is now a mainstay in our performance line-up. The response from our attendees has been nothing short of amazing. Do to this we have now teamed up with the National VFW and Operation Uplink. We have offered to donate the proceeds of our debut CD to 'Operation Uplink' a program that will enable the VFW to purchase phone cards for our Troops. This is a National campaign and we could not think of a better way for our music to be heard, and for such a great cause. It will be available at all local vfw post across the country. This will improve Troop morale in the field and thier spirits will be uplifted when they get a chance to speak with thier loved ones back at home. We are very proud to be involved with such a project and are honored.
