Benjah's transformation brings his voice to Christian music


Apopka Family, Faith & Food Festival Feature: Benjah

Benjah will be performing in the Apopka Family, Faith & Food Festival Jan. 7 2017. Benjamin “Benjah” Thom is a critically acclaimed Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning songwriter, producer, and music engineer.

Benjah was featured on and produced two tracks for Lecrae's latest project entitled "Rehab." It was nominated for both Grammy and Dove Awards while reaching #15 on the Billboard top 200 and #1 on Billboard Christian charts. He also produced and was featured on "Blacklight" by Tedashii, which hit the Billboard top 200 and was #1 on the Christian charts. Benjah was one of the original members of Group 1 Crew and had the opportunity to produce and write for five songs on their self-titled freshmen project with Word/Warner Records, and won a Dove award for album. He has also worked with many other artists including mainstream neo-soul singer Angie Stone.


Benjah began pursuing music full-time after walking away from a football scholarship. He was was critically injured in a car accident that resulted in the death of the driver during his freshman year in college. He felt the Lord took away the idol of football and led him towards a career in Christian music.

Pivotal events in life caused him to see that Christianity was not merely a singular thought or act, but, a life of mission, following Christ and reaching the masses with a testimony of Grace. Based on that, he set out to create an appealing unique sound with the good news weaved throughout hard beats and infectious melodies.

Benjah has traveled worldwide and has lived in various contrasting places. He has called Orlando home for the past 10 years. Living among unique cultures and consuming their diverse musical styles has contributed greatly to the shaping of his distinct sound.
