Ja’Marc Davis was born in Detroit MI. into a lineage of talented musicians and ministers. His father is a music minister and the former music director for Christian music legend Carman. His mother is a children’s minister and founder of the Texas Children’s Choir and Christian Performing Arts Center. Being exposed to celebrities and industry executives at a very young age, Ja’Marc quickly developed a love of music and dance, while being influenced by a wide variety of music genres and creative artists. At the age of 5, he recognized a calling on his life to influence his generation through his gifts of singing, dancing, and preaching.
After serving 3 years as a backup dancer for Christian hip-hop pioneer’s ETW and serving 2 years as backup dancer for Carman, Davis struck out on his own. In 1996 Ja’Marc’ s musical career exploded on the Christian music scene with the emergence of pop vocal group Raze. Raze brought an infectious energy to the Christian contemporary scene in Europe first, before signing with one of the world’s top recording companies, catapulting them to the top of the national charts. Raze racked up over 500,000 albums sold and garnered critical acclaim with 4 album releases. 3 Dove Awards accompanied the two #1 songs “Always & Forever” and “More Than A Dream” along with 6 additional top 10 radio hits.
It was at the peak of his musical career that everything Ja’Marc and his team had worked for came to an abrupt halt… His musical career came to an apparent end, leaving him to face his darkest hours both personally and professionally. It was during this time of solitude; left to wonder, as many of us do, if he had fallen too far to ever be redeemed or qualified to be used by God again?
“It took nearly 10 years for me to fully accept that God still had plans to use a repentant sinner like me to serve Him and build His Kingdom. I believe that there are potentially millions of people in this world who need to know that The Cross and The Blood were strong enough to redeem their lives too.” – Ja’Marc
