First Female Reach Records Artist!


Most of you know by now that I am a big Reach Records fan.  That is Lecrae’s record label and it includes Christian hip-hop artists: Lecrae, Tedashii, KB, Trip Lee, Andy Mineo, GAWVI, WHATUPRG, and 1K Phew.  The 116 crew are on their 2019 Unashamed Forever Tour right now and last night at a show in Orlando, Florida Lecrae announced that he signed Wande Isola!  They also released her first single as a Reach Records artist called “Blessed Up” and it is awesome!  This song is anointed in Holy Spirit joy and power and it had me smiling, dancing, and praising God all day!

Wande was born in Nigeria and was raised in Austin, Texas.  She loves Jesus and she is using the gifts the Lord gave her to bring glory to His Name!

“At the core [I] love Jesus and will always tell you about the truth and [am] not afraid to represent that,” Wande testified.”

-The Christian Post

I sent a couple tweets to Wande and Lecrae today letting them know I loved the song and I’m praising God for it, and Wande liked my tweets!  Thank you sister!  You made my day!  Wande is a humble sister of Christ and I hope you show her some love and encouragement!  I bought her song today and I look forward to seeing how the Lord moves through her in power with Reach Records!

Lecrae said last night before he announced Wande’s signing that Reach Records has been going strong for 15 years now.  It has been really cool to see how God has worked through them to reach the world for Christ!  I grew up with hip-hop and I love how the Lord is using Reach Records to break through worldly barriers by sharing the Gospel with poetic rhymes and sweet beats!  The 116 Unashamed comes from Romans 1:16 and I am 116 Unashamed for life!

“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes…”

Romans 1:16

I pray the Lord blesses the Reach Records ministry and the entire 116 crew!  Grace and peace to all of you brothers and sisters!  Keep going strong for Jesus unashamed!

“Gotta stay prayed up, yeah I’m talkin’ ’bout the Spirit.”

-Wande, Blessed Up

Grace and peace to you all in the Beautiful Name of Jesus!

  2. What joy we have in singing to our Lord! Bless all the artists who bring us together in song to praise God as we share our faith! Thank you, Ryan, for sharing these Christian singers. Awesome music.

  3. Lecrae’s music and message are great but what really disappoints me are the political candidates he chooses to promote. Many times they are very outspoken on issues Christians should really be on the other side of. He was so angry at people on Instagram last year because they questioned his support for a woman who was clearly for abortion on demand – for any reason and at any point in the pregnancy. He said he supported her because she was black. That was it and he didn’t care about any other issue. It broke my heart but he’s just a man. Imperfect and broken and learning like the rest of us. I just need to continue to pray for him and those with him. His music is good and he knows right from wrong .

    1. Yeah, I watched an interview recently where Lecrae talked about the years he was struggling with a lot of different issues regarding race and the church, the police and politics, and race issues within the Christian music industry. He definitely loves the Lord and he is growing, learning, and being sanctified to be more like Jesus like all believers are. Amen to praying for him. He is out there on the front lines with the rest of us who share the Gospel with the world. God bless!
