Nate Bean & 4Given

This highly anointed aggregation of minstrels present musical presentations filled with life and energy, dynamic vocals, and various styles of music that most importantly, invoke the presence of God. Founder and Nashville native, Nate Bean, known for his HUGE personality and smooth vocal styling, has established a professional name for himself via his songwriting, arranging, directing, vocal producing, and his heart for God's people. Nate discovered his gift for music at an early age and soon thereafter began singing in his home church. He later attended Nashville School of the Arts where he began studying classical. In 2004, at the age of 16, he felt led to start his own music ministry with a few close friends and classmates called, "Next Level". Within one year, Next Level skyrocketed to the top of the Nashville gospel music scene. They performed at some of the most prestigious events in the area and abroad. After hearing from God, in 2008, Nate changed the name of the group to "4Given"; the number "4" symbolizing complete, divine renewal. After the simple, yet powerful name change, a spark was lit and Nate and his singers began to experience the true definition of grace and favor. From being invited to participate in professional industry events, recording sessions, award shows and cross country travel, 4G was on the map. Over time, they earned many accolades and recognitions including: 3 GMC Choir of the Year Awards and 5 Rhythm of Gospel Award nominations. Their distinct sound, technique, and commitment to ministry opened doors for them to work with mainstream gospel artists such as Dorinda Clark Cole, Kirk Franklin, Kierra Sheard, James Hall, Darnell Davis, Dr. Bobby Jones and many others. Nate Bean and 4Given are poised to impact the world on a global scale with their first major release HYMNS And DEVOTIONALS UNPLUGGED through G.Favored Entertainment Group, in partnership with Dream Label Group and distribution through Capitol Christian. HYMNS And DEVOTIONALS UNPLUGGED feature some of the most well-known traditional hymns and songs with a modern twist. Included in the mix is the groups popular YouTube version of "What A Friend (We Have In Jesus)", featuring industry veteran San Franklin-Jackson. This new album reflects and supports the vow that Nate made to God years ago: “It is my mission to be effective and allow people to feel God and his love through our music."
