B-SHOC brought his Jesus Music to the Smithville Church of God for a Holy Ghost party last Wednesday night as part of an After School Event.
It was his third visit to the church and it drew over 400 worshipers
“I was really just a lot of people getting together to celebrate life and the grace of Jesus. It was a lot of fun. There was a lot of laser lighting, jumping, screaming, and shouting. It’s was really hyped and the kids had a good time while the adults got to act like kids. A lot of families come here and this church in particular is awesome with a great outreach and they bring us to put on the fun time in church. We do about 85 shows a year across the country. We have over 6.5 million You tube views. We have a lot of music videos on-line. We just celebrated nine years in the ministry and we have seen just under 10,000 souls come to know Jesus through the ministry,” he said.
Although he is known as a Christian rap artist, B-Shock said he would prefer to call it “Jesus Music”.
“Some of it has a rap flavor but it is more of an upbeat dance style of music. We just call it high energy Jesus music. When I started the ministry I thought it would be geared toward youth but it turned out that a lot of adults come and have just as much fun as the kids,” he said

Bryan Edmonds (aka B-SHOC), was raised in a Christian home in the small town of Toccoa, GA. He gave his life to Jesus at a very young age. B-SHOC spent most of his childhood with a tennis racquet in his hand. He attended Garner Webb University on a tennis scholarship. At GWU, he was named All American and won a NCCAA College Championship.
His love for music began at the age of 16 when he was introduced to hip hop. It was love at first beat. The beat moved him in a special way, so much that he pursued a music career. After many years in the studio and mastering his talent, the music developed a whole new lifestyle for him, which landed him in the night clubs many nights of the week. As his success grew, and he partook of the lifestyle that came with it, depression set in. Something had to change.
He then understood for certain that nothing in the world would satisfy his heart like Jesus Christ. After leaving the night scene, and a lot prayer, the love for the beat still remained. He began writing and recording music about Jesus and his life using the same style of beat. Knowing this was not popular in churches, and that critics would arise, he was dedicated to do God’s will for his life.
Since then God has opened many doors for B-SHOC, traveling the country, and packing concerts full of energy and excitement for Jesus. Thru his concerts and music, he prays more people come to know Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. He gives ALL Glory to God.
