“FEDEL” is based on the word “fidelity”, meaning “truth” and “faithfulness”. Growing up in North Memphis FEDEL faced urban social pressures, depression, gang violence, an abusive home and much more. With God’s grace he went from a hothead in the streets, to a rap and spoken word artist bringing the creative message of Christ through music and influence. Now, located in Oklahoma, FEDEL’s music is based on his “I WILL BE” campaign - encouraging people to hold on to God’s grace and faith amidst pain and struggle. He released his fourth full-length album FLAW (fight like a winner) in May 2015, featuring Reach Records artist KB, Social Club, Derek Minor and Tim Halperin of American Idol. Since 2008, FEDEL has passionately worked to use music to reach the next generation and has performed with some of the most influential events, including: Bubba’s Bash, Judah Smith’s ‘Jesus Is’ and ‘Life Is’ tours, Young Christians’ Weekend and an Anomaly Tour date with Lecrae and Andy Mineo.
