"Releasing songs of freedom and revelation of God’s love in pursuit of identities being restored back to Christ."
Beckah Shae’s destiny was mirrored in a simple act at an early age. The little girl, who was already often called a songbird, was recorded singing, “Jesus Loves Me” at the age of 2. Beckah’s mother was raised in a traditional Jewish home, and her conversion to Christianity was a crucial element in guiding Beckah to her own faith and witness through music. She would need that assurance of God’s love in the coming years.
Following her parents divorce were a series of trials that lead Beckah to spend much of her childhood moving into friends and family members homes, staying in cars, hotels, battered women shelters and even spending time in foster homes. Despite what some would describe as hardships, Beckah considers it a joy to have developed a strong dependence on God and His word during this time. She received an understanding of God as her Safety, Shelter, Refuge, Security, Father and Best Friend and found comfort in expressing herself through her songwriting. People who heard her recognized a power in her voice that came straight from the passion in her heart. A talent scout soon discovered Beckah Shae shortly after her high school graduation and within a few months, Beckah was recording a demo in Los Angeles, working with some of the top producers of the time, leading to a meeting with Randy Jackson at Columbia Records.
She began to seek acceptance and approval from industry professionals, which led to an obsession to meet all their expectations. Her identity was lost and seeking to be found as she hopped from trend to trend. Now Beckah Shae quotes, "To see yourself the way God sees you, is the beginning of freedom."
Overcoming bulimia, depression, and anxiety, Beckah is passionate about exposing the enemy and his attempt to rob Gods people of their self-worth by convincing them to accept a false identity. She received God as her Deliverer, Healer, Provider, Husband and Joy and believes that sharing an intimate God, will lead people to a knowledge of the fullness that He has for them.
Following several confirmations, Beckah heard the call of God to move to Nashville in 2002. It was there God revealed a bigger vision for the songbird. Little did she know, God was working to provide a partner to help take her music to a new level. Beckah was introduced to Jack “Shoc” Shocklee, a rising young producer who had worked previously with Christian artists such as tobyMac, Group 1 Crew, and Lil’ iRocc Williams. They discovered that their passions for ministry followed the same path, and as time progressed, their friendship and musical partnership developed in to love. The pair married in August of 2004 and has since produced 4 independent works on Shae Shoc Records, titled “Butterfly”, “Joy”, “Emmanuel”, and “LIFE. All four projects are tinged with soulful vocals and catchy pop/r&b beats. “Butterfly, “Joy”, “Emmanuel”, and “LIFE” are currently available nationwide through iTunes & all internet distribution.
Beckah Shae has been singing and ministering at hundreds of churches and events across the nation since 2005. As an independent recording artist, her single “Here In This Moment” had great success placing #6 on Billboard’s CHR Christian Radio charts. She’s featured on tobyMac’s album “Tonight” and sang on Grammy Award Winner Jonny Lang’s album “Turn Around.”
Shoc, Beckah, and their 2 daughters Joy and Grace, are now living in Nashville, TN. They have been members of Family Affair Ministries since 2003. Currently, the Lord has been using Beckah to heal sicknesses, speak prophetically, and release words of knowledge and wisdom. Songs of truth, freedom, restoration, and joy are released through Beckah to enrich others to accept the infinite love that Christ has for them. Beckah Shae says of the winding road she has traveled, "I know that He’s allowed me to endure all the things I’ve gone through in life to draw me close to Him and find faith, humble me while gaining a bold confidence in His power and develop a true compassion and genuine love for His people. I’m on a mission to dive deeper into the heart of God and share with the world the truth and treasures I find while I’m in there! To God be ALL the glory forever!"
