About two years ago, Wilkerson, a Christian Rapper, was called to take the path to share his faith through music during a 30-day spiritual fast. The 24-year-old has been interested in music for most of his life. "I've always done music, played guitar and drums and I am learning to play keyboard."
"The message in "Speak Up" is as Christians we need to speak up and let people know that there is hope in Jesus and they can fine their hope in him. In the Bible we are called to be a light in the world," said Wilkerson. His sophomore album "Born Sinner" brings many social issues to light including teen suicide and depression. Wilkerson plans to launch a year wide anti-suicide campaign "Scarred Hearts" in 2014.
Wilkerson said he wants to use his talents to help as many people as he can. He is now a student of the art and works five or six hours a day to improve. "I am just a normal person who uses rhymes to send a message," he said. He hopes to brush up on his Spanish speaking skills so he can reach wider demographic.
Many people have helped and supported him along his path including his wife, Jane, who serves as his manager. During the past few months, Wilkerson has been performing throughout Oklahoma and in neighboring states, entertaining at Christian rallies and meetings and working with several rappers who were once his role models.
"God has brought me some great people into my life." His ultimate dream would be to tour worldwide and share his Christian message. He sees his Chickasaw heritage as a blessing. "The Chickasaws have helped with housing, education and health care. They have really helped me and my family."
Wilkerson has also worked in the Summer Youth program and credits the Chickasaw Nation for helping him craft a strong work ethic. The couple helps pastor ATC Youth Ministries near Stratford to help give back to community children.
