Gospel Rap Evangelist and Lyrical Prophet to this generation—DAY brings Truth to today’s culture through the art of music. His powerful lyrics captivate both adolescents and adults. Born and raised in the city of Danbury, Connecticut, DAY began writing lyrics and composing music in his youth. At age 22, having packed up all of his belongings, he set on a cross-country journey which led him to Los Angeles, CA where he not only sat under the prophetic, healing and teaching ministry of his spiritual father—The Prophet, Bishop Clarence E. McClendon, but also served in both the Music and Youth Ministries at The Place of Grace (Los Angeles) under Clarence E. McClendon Ministries. DAY eventually recorded a demo with Roc Nation music producer Ruwanga “Ru” Samath that began to open doors to opportunities and place him before well known Hip Hop legends including Diddy, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Suge Knight, 50 Cent, Master P, and others—yet the divine call on his life had a stronger pull. But not without tribulation.
Shortly after deciding to use his talents to glorify God, DAY was diagnosed with Stage II Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and endured the following months undergoing chemotherapy treatments to rid his body of golf ball-sized tumors throughout his neck and chest. What didn't kill him definitely made him stronger! DAY was declared, “medically cured” and began to capture the attention of secular media and has been featured in Birthplace Magazine, SoJones.com, and, most notably, graced the cover of HYPE Magazine!
As his music unequivocally bridges the gospel and secular music industries, DAY has performed at notable venues throughout the Los Angeles and Tri-state areas, including the Knitting Factory and Webster Hall in Manhattan. His performances in prominent events include McDonald’s Gospel Fest (Newark, NJ), Higher Calling (Brooklyn, NY), and Rap Fest (Bronx, NY). Additionally, DAY has not only shared the stage with a plethora of Christian Hip Hop heavyweights including Bizzle, Derek Minor, Sevin, and Angie Rose but also some of Gospel music’s most beloved artists such as Hezekiah Walker, Cissy Houston, Vickie Winans, and legendaries Roberta Flack and Dionne Warwick.
