Meet Flame, the Christian Rapper, Featured on “Counting On”
On a recent episode of "Counting On," Jessa, Ben, and Spurgeon Seewald headed to St.Louis to meet Flame, a Christian rapper and his wife.
Ben became fan of Flame's albums and connected with him over email about their mutual love of Christian hip hop music. After hitting it off, Ben decided to take his family to meet Flame in-person and discuss his interest in inner city Christian ministry. When the Seewald family arrived at Flame's studio, they got to see Flame's process for creating music. Ben even does something unexpected: he hopped in the recording booth!
FLAME was born and raised in inner city St. Louis. Today, he is a well-versed leader in the Christian hip-hop scene with a growing list of accolades, including a GRAMMY(R) nomination and multiple Dove and Stellar Award nominations. In addition to touring, writing, recording and co-producing his own projects, FLAME founded and helms Clear Sight Music, a burgeoning record label raising the bar in Christian hip-hop and beyond. He also has a degree in biblical counseling from Louisville's Southern Seminary, viewing rich biblical knowledge as essential to his ministry.
