“What is the Sound the of Heaven? Its the people of God. Us. It is our calling, in whatever arena, to be His light, His hands and feet to a lost world. These songs are a declaration of the desire to walk in the identity of Christ and be the audible and visible Sound of Heaven.” – Brad + Rebekah
The pair first met and began singing together while students at North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. At the time, Brad was part of an all-male worship team that needed a female lead for one of their songs. As fate would have it, Rebekah fit the part, and soon after joining the team, it became clear that there was more than just musical chemistry between she and Brad.
The two continued getting to know each other and soon found themselves falling in love “between worship and watching ‘Gilmore Girls.’” They got married in 2006, and two years later, God opened the door for them to start touring full-time together: “We started traveling in 2008 without really knowing what we were doing, but knowing that that’s where the opportunity was,” Brad says. “And God made it very evident in that time that that’s what we were meant to do.”
Between the traveling and ministering, Brad and Rebekah welcomed their son, Ayden, in 2012, and their daughter, Addilyn Grace, in 2016. Yet even as their family has grown and the musicians have embraced their new role as parents, they’ve continued to travel and focus on their music. Although it can be challenging, getting to share their personal and professional lives with one another has become one of the most cherished and rewarding aspects of their work. “Because we live and work together, none of us are missing out on each others’ lives,” Brad says. “We get to travel together and experience life together.”
The family moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 2014 and currently spend half the year ministering with Christ’s Church of the Valley and the other half of the year traveling and producing music. Brad + Rebekah’s Sound Of Heaven is now their seventh career release.
