HE GOES BY JUDAH CYPHA - THE SERVANT. THE ARTIST. THE BUSINESS MAN.
PREFACE: Judah means "praise" in Hebrew. Cypha (slang for cypher) means "circle". Judah Cypha sends musical praises to the Holy Trinity which circles his path.
Judah Cypha (born Russell McFadden) entered this world as a warrior. Born pre-maturely, Judah fought to breathe on his own while his mother and grandmother stood by his hospital bed praying for his strength. At 15 years old, he became blind after playing a game of dare with one of his friends. Judah prayed earnestly to be healed from the result of his foolishness and God restored his vision three days later. Although raised in the church, Judah found himself attracted to the wrong crowds and had become known as a troublemaker around his neighborhood. During this time, he often experienced supernatural occurrences that left him speechless and wanting to know more about God. The knocking was there. Judah was not yet ready to answer…
As Judah Cypha became a young adult, his life seemed to spiral out of control. Judah became involved with gangs, drug dealing and numerous unhealthy relationships. The fast life was a pretty good one until it all came crashing down one day when he was faced with doing serious time in prison. Judah realized that he had a covering over his life when the judge handling the case shortened his sentence to only 4 months. While incarcerated, Judah re-dedicated his life to God and once released, knew that his old ways would only lead him down a path of destruction if he did not change. He had finally accepted that God had plans for him. He not only spared Judah from the detriment of prison, but God also spared his life during botched drug deals and near fatal car accidents. The knocking was there. Judah’s heart was now pierced…
Judah accepted his calling into the music ministry in 2006. Since leaving behind a life of heartache due to bad choices, Judah’s life has flourished and he is now seeing the fruits of his obedience and renewed faith in God’s power to change even the bleakest of situations. Judah is using his gifts to promote positive and inspiring messages through the fusion of hip hop, R&B and gospel. Judah is also a skilled actor who has appeared in numerous plays while re-enacting notable characters from the Bible. His revolutionary ministry has executed a unique formula that includes a genuine love for God’s people, a passion for the arts and his desire to leave an impact on the world.
To be continued...in Jesus' name.
