Chico Johnson: From Rising R&B Star, to Songwriter for God

Before he started making music for God, Chico Johnson was on track to be the next big thing in the R&B scene.

Singer Songwriter Chico Johnson was on a sure path to being an R&B star, when God began to speak to him about his life’s direction.

He made the bold decision to turn down the opportunity of a lifetime, and instead begin to make music with a heavenly message.

“I got conviction that if I did that show, it was gonna tie me into something that was probably gonna lead me down a long dark road,” he says.

“But the next day I woke up with a whole new step and we recorded a whole new fresh album. And this was the first time I just got to speak freedom on a track… and from that point is where I started to make the best music in my life.”

Chico now loves to make music to encourage young people in their identity, and to help lead people to Christ.
