Charles R. Fears, Jr. was born on May 14, 1976 to Charles Sr. and Theresa Fears. From conception, there has been a calling on his life. Faced with disheartening news that he would be deformed at birth, Charles' parents exercised their faith in God and trusted that God had other plans.
Born normal and healthy, Charles grew up in church, being taught how to live for God. During his teenage years he was baptized and received the gift of the Holy Ghost. As do many young people, Charles thought he was missing out on the "good times" often made attractive by the secular world. Charles rebelled against his upbringing, failed to stay connected to God, and soon found himself fighting addictions and depression. He takes every opportunity to share his story about this time and is forthcoming about struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Charles found comfort in songwriting and God has blessed him with the ability to write and sing the songs created. Charles writes songs that give God the glory. He sings them with anointing because they are his testimonies; he shares them because this is what God has chosen for him to do.
