Music Artists

Level 3:16 is a group of focused and determined “musicianaries”(music-missionaries) with The Impact Movement. They met and were assembled by Impact Music for the Impact Music Summer Mission. The uniqueness of the group is evident, not only in their formation, but also in their configuration. How many bands do you know that have a combination of 2 male emcees (Stv G. and Chris T.), 3 female vocalists (KMase, Candace and Crystal), and 1 female DJ (KB)? With this unique combination, Level 3:16 uses Hip Hop, R&B and urban gospel all with a powerful and life changing message. Their self-titled debut album released December 28, 2010 on Cross Movement Records.

The album reached excellent charting success in its first week, charting #1 on the R&B/Hip Hop Christian Sound Scan Chart, #1 on Christian Rap Amazon MP3, #1 on Christian Contemporary Music Amazon MP3, #2 on iTunes Christian & Gospel, #3 on Gospel Amazon MP3, and #8 on the Billboard Gospel Chart.

Since that time Level 3:16 has enjoyed the privileges of opening for Michael W. Smith this past spring in Tifton GA, and was part of the Legacy Conference line up of artists that included Lecrae, FLAME, and others this past July. Despite current successes the group’s main focus remains to elevate their culture and generation to the next level of reality that begins only with embracing the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

In 2012 Level 3:16 will be featured in a docu-reality show produced by Issachar Media and plan to release a second album with Cross Movement Records so stay tuned!
