Nelson is one of the Hymn Remix Project’s four vocalists. Despite a lack of formal training (he cannot read music), he comes from an extensive performing arts background that includes a long-time involvement with Toronto’s urban dance scene, and a stint as a singer at the Sands Casino in Macao, China. He sees his artistic abilities as an “amazing” blessing, and credits his coming-to-faith and church worship experience with helping him discover his passion for singing.
“For me, the Hymn Remix Project has been such a blessing to not only grow musically but to learn how to praise God in a new way by bringing the old hymns with a new twist.” Nelson says. He describes the experience of working with musicians who love the Lord as he does as a “beautiful event.”
