About the artists:
Hip-hop artist Blake Whiteley is a redeemed bad boy with a troubled past, but through God and music he has experienced healing and is sharing with the world.
As an independent artist for the past eight years, he broke into iTunes with a #4 on the hip-hop chart and #63 overall. He opened for Sidewalk Prophets working into a deal with TrueBreed Records. His style has been described as a blend of influences of Drake, Post Malone and Juice WRLD, but with a Gospel message.
Aaron Cole will also be appearing with the Your Story Matters Tour. He is a Christian rapper, a Dove Award Winner, and listed as 1 of 16 Christian Artists to Watch in Essence Magazine. Hailing from Bristol, Virginia, Cole will be bringing his high powered blend of hip-hop to Eldon after being on the road with the often sold out TobyMac tour last year.
Roy Tosh debuts his newest EP, Beautiful Chaos, with the new single release of Back Home ft. Branan Murphy. He teams up with quite a few great artists on tracks on the EP, including Aaron Cole, Sky, V.Rose, and Phil J. Back Home has a haunting melody, with Tosh’s rap laid down around it. Roy Tosh found himself filled with a message that poured out of his soul through Hip Hop music. Roy has opened for Grammy winning recording artist Lecrae, Jeremy Camp, and Andy Mineo.
Tosh serves as director of a non for profit organization, “CFI Ministries,” that he started with his wife which aims to reach “just 1 more” with God’s love through media and live events. He has worked beside many organizations such as FCA, CRU, Young Life, and has ministered at a variety of churches, camps, and youth groups across the globe. His music videos have been aired on GodTV, JCTV, UPTV, as well as other television networks. He lives with his wife and son in Orlando, Florida. His music is currently top ranked on Billboard’s Christian lists, and is featured in Foot Locker and Journey’s retail stores.
