What do you get when you mix a suburban kid with an urban school in a city submerged with churches, clubs, and Hip-Hop? Beacon Light.
Beacon Light, born Brandon Clahassey, is a trail blazing rap artist from Grand Rapids, MI. He has performed alongside Grammy-winner Lecrae and many more. Alongside his traveling ministry he serves as a worship leader with The Edge, a Hip-Hop church in Grand Rapids.
Beacon is a very versatile artist who can take his audience on a journey through a high-energy, “hands in the air concert” and finish in intimate worship. In addition to music, he has Bachelors degree in Biblical Studies and always seeks to leave the crowd with a life changing message.
Throughout his career Beacon Light has released two full length albums: Overcomin’ (2010) and Lights On (2013). He has also released a variety of singles and free downloads on popular sites such as noisetrade. With two albums under his belt, he brings a smooth lyrical flow that dances with the beat in seamless, rhythmic-worship. His vocals ride the sound waves of bass-banging Hip-Hop and beautiful ballads all while communicating the everlasting truth of Christ.
“Hip-Hop is one of the most blatant genres around,” says Beacon, “Artists blatantly boast about partying, drugs, and violence. I blatantly boast about Jesus and I hope to inspire others to do the same."
