Jason Upton was adopted in 1973. After growing up in Minneapolis Minnesota, Jason began singing in churches at the age of 15. During this time he won awards and successfully traveled around singing in churches all over the country. After getting married to his wife Rachel, in 1995, the two had an encounter with God that would change their lives. This encounter made them question why they just sang in churches and left them with a desire to impact people for Christ. During their time at Regent University, finishing their Masters of Divinity programs, they set up a worship room in their home where they regularly gathered with other worshipers to pray and intercede. It was during these times that they realized that the songs God was giving them during worship were not simply songs but keys that would open and shut doors in the spirit. Since that time Jason has been asked to worship all over the country and the world. On January 9, 2001 Jason and Rachel had their first child, Samuel James.
"For every revival a voice that penetrates the darkness is raised up. I've never heard a clearer voice to this generation nor a purer channel than Jason Upton. In my generation a Keith Green was raised up with a lions roar. The lion can be heard again in the sound and lyrics of this young prophet."
Lou Engle is the V.P. of "The Call" a gathering of worshipers and intercessors nationally. The first event gathered 250,000 people to pray and worship while reuniting generations as well as praying for a revolution in the youth of America. This event took place on the mall in Washington D.C. last September.
James Ryle (Author/minister/prophet, Sons of Thunder) A poet with thunder in his voice, a musician with fire in his soul, and a worshipper with truth on his lips. This debut album signals the beginning of a new season of song that will turn back darkness and release praise in the streets. Indeed, it's already started!
Danny Chambers (Artist, writer, pastor) Jason Upton, what an amazing fresh voice to the body of Christ and to the world. This young man has undeniably just returned from the height of Mount
Zion. He sings to the Father with an overwhelming sense of adoration. For those in the church, with ears to hear, he ignites a passion for the secret place of the most high God. To those who have grown cold in heart his voice rings with a holy haunt of the Spirit, crying out "come back home".
From the first time I heard Jason Upton I knew God had raised up a voice like unto Jeremiah with the musical passions of King David. Jason's gift will be misunderstood by some, celebrated by others, it will undoubtedly anger hell & delight heaven. One thing for sure is that you won't be able to ignore what Jason is carrying for this generation... Prophetic voices will be heard.
Plug in Jason's new CD & tell Pharaoh to get out of God's way.
Melody Green (author, writer, singer)- When you hear the passion and intensity in Jason's worship, you'll be stirred to praise Jesus as deeply and exuberantly as he does. Jason approaches God's throne with power, humility, and sincerity... and I believe he is intent on taking everyone in worshipping range along with him! Melody Green
