    Adaeze [pronounced “uh-daisy”… like a flower]
    is one unique young lady. Born in London,
    England along with her three older brothers,
    she was brought up in a healthy Christian
    home by her loving parents. By the time she
    was 2 years old, her family moved to Tulsa,
    OK, which is where Adaeze discovered her love
    of music from a very young age. Inspired by
    her oldest brother Zo to begin playing piano,
    Adaeze also began writing songs. Her first
    song she wrote was entitled “Eternity,” the
    title track for her new debut album that
    released November 21, 2008. Even from when
    she was a child, her love for God burned deep,
    as the chorus of her first song stated her life
    goal: “I want my life to count for eternity. I
    want to hear You say to me, ‘Well done. You’ve
    been My servant good and faithfully. Now
    come, spend eternity with Me.’”

    It didn’t take long for Adaeze to realize that
    music was her passion. She continued writing
    music that God gave her; and as her family
    moved to Lexington, KY after her freshman
    year of high school, she began recording with
    two of her older brothers, Zo and Jay. In her
    early high school years, she recorded over 70
    of her songs, all of which she wrote herself,
    with her brothers making her music. Using
    them to perform, Adaeze began to realize her
    dream of making an album and using this gift
    God had given her to further His Kingdom.
    When she got a scholarship to play basketball
    at a Division 1 university in Tennessee, she
    jumped at the opportunity. However, through
    a variety of circumstances, God gently showed
    her that her basketball dreams had too long
    been the center of her life, coming before her
    relationship with God. “Sometimes our plans
    and dreams aren’t the same as God’s plans
    and dreams for us,” Adaeze has said. “And
    God knows best. I had to reevaluate my life
    and prioritize everything. It was a very interes-
    ting time in my little comfortable world.” She
    walked away from the game of basketball after
    her freshman year of college, and moved back
    to Lexington. There, she surrendered her
    future “to the One Who sees the big picture.
    Apparently, basketball wasn’t my passion, or
    God’s plan for me. Music was.” Good thing too,
    because her voice and song-writing would
    have been a terrible thing to waste and be
    sidelined behind her love of basketball. “I
    realized that basketball wasn’t everything…
    and it had been all my life. All of my brothers
    played basketball from kindergarten; so did I.”
    One of her brothers, Kelenna, is even in the
    NBA, playing on the Golden State Warriors

    In her heart, Adaeze knew that she was mak-
    ing the right choice going with music. Her true
    passion is praise and worship; once she moved
    back to Lexington and transferred to University
    of Kentucky, she was already helping lead
    praise and worship for the college ministry at
    her home church, Southland Christian Church.
    She also began leading praise and worship for
    the University of Kentucky’s Christian Student
    Fellowship. She started recording with a
    couple of her good friends who had recording
    booths for closets; those same friends later
    formed a band called the Field Goal Unit. When
    the Field Goal Unit came out with their debut
    album, The Kickoff, Adaeze says it was like a
    wakeup call. “It was like God was saying to
    me, ‘Hellooooo! What are you waiting for?
    You should be recording for your album too!’ I
    didn’t need much else to start my recording
    process, to say the least.” And so began the
    road to Eternity, her very first album. Her
    brother Jay had still been making music, and
    provided all but two tracks’ music on the
    album. The other two were provided by the
    Field Goal Unit’s members, AJ Hochhalter and
    Blake Morris. Adaeze wrote all the songs,
    except for “Stay,” which she co-wrote with her
    brother Jay, and “You Have Everything,” co-
    written with AJ and Blake. “Turn Around” and
    “Resisting Temptation” were written with her
    good friend Clayton York, who appears as a
    special guest on those same tracks. Having
    recorded the entire album in closets-made-
    into-recording-booths, Adaeze also produced
    the album. All of this was done within a span
    of one month. God sure does know what He’s
    doing when He changes plans.

    Now Adaeze dreams bigger than she ever has,
    knowing that she sings for the God Who can do
    exceedingly and abundantly more than we can
    ask or think (Ephesians 3:20), as she sings in
    her song “I Can Do Anything.” There’s a new
    voice in the Christian music industry, with a
    new refreshing sound of Christian Hip Hop and
    R&B. She has yet to be signed to a major
    recording label, but don’t expect that to stop
