Alive City

ALIVE CITY is unashamedly a worship moment. We want to create music for the modern church. We want the church to have great music that causes people to take notice of Jesus. More than just singing songs about Him; we want people to love Him and follow Him completely. We want to celebrate Jesus.

We want to partner with The Church anywhere and everywhere we can.

For years ALIVE CITY has been crafting our sound. As part of one of the largest student and young adult ministries in Michigan, we’ve been able to stay in tune to what’s going on and what’s coming next. We hope that our music will work for you.

Growing up with a past full of brokenness never having met her biological father and with a mother in the sex industry, Tasha has a God-injected passion for calling out women into their true God-given restored and redeemed identity and purpose. Tasha created Shine with Shine Studio as an opportunity to call out the inner beauty in her clients as they help support Wellspring Living (a Non-Profit organization that offers rehabilitation programs for women and girls who have been human trafficked and sexually exploited).  Shine Studio gives 15% of all revenues to Wellspring Living while being an advocate as well. Soon Shine will offer apprenticeships to women coming out of the Wellspring Living restoration program.

Tasha’s heart for empowering women is for all women and believes that exploitation can also be a form of settling for less than God’s absolute best.  She often encourages her mentees to have dating sabbaticals to find their true worth and value in Jesus first which is how she met her husband, Jared. Together they have five children ages ranging from 18-years old to 1-year. Tasha’s husband and her have a huge heart for all JUSTICE matters and run a collective group, Love Is A Verb, who partners with 8 Non-Profit Organizations connecting dots for people to find their passion in serving and loving others. They are planted in Atlanta, Georgia and call Passion City Church their home.

Bethany started writing her own songs when she was 7 years old and would sing before she could talk in school. Everyone in school thought she was deaf until one day she walked on stage and started singing a song in her after school program. The program director told her mother about a talent show in which Bethany took place in and found her way to playing in a youth band when networking with a pastor of a nearby church at the show. Her passion for playing music came from her father who was a musician. He would encourage her to play songs written by bands such as Led Zepplin and Metallica. Along with classic rock influence, Bethany is also inspired by pop/punk, reggae and blues. She started to write inspirational lyrics to help her through her dad’s drug addiction and death and she is hoping that her music will help others to seek and find God.

This sound is harder and louder than some church settings prefer, which led them outside the walls. The heart of the band is Christ-centered with hopes to openly share The Good News in the coolest, hippest, way possible.

While probably best known for the song “God Of This City”, written in a brothel in Thailand during a mission trip, Bluetree continued to live out their vision for worship + music + justice. Not believing we’re merely called to write great songs, play them in churches and enjoy God’s presence, Aaron believes we are to live integrated, whole lives – where worship invades all we are and do – so we can begin to experience the wholeness of life God intends for us. As we choose to live worshipful lives, it follows that the natural gifts God’s given us are magnified for His glory, fame, and renown.

Tasha Faellaci

Tasha Faellaci is a redeemed wife, mother, blogger, speaker, mentor, 10-year celebrity hairdresser and the founder of Shine. Growing up with a past full of brokenness never having met her biological father and with a mother in the sex industry, Tasha has a God-injected passion for calling out women into their true God-given restored and redeemed identity and purpose. Tasha created Shine with Shine Studio as an opportunity to call out the inner beauty in her clients as they help support Wellspring Living (a Non-Profit organization that offers rehabilitation programs for women and girls who have been human trafficked and sexually exploited).  Shine Studio gives 15% of all revenues to Wellspring Living while being an advocate as well. Soon Shine will offer apprenticeships to women coming out of the Wellspring Living restoration program.

Tasha’s heart for empowering women is for all women and believes that exploitation can also be a form of settling for less than God’s absolute best.  She often encourages her mentees to have dating sabbaticals to find their true worth and value in Jesus first which is how she met her husband, Jared. Together they have five children ages ranging from 18-years old to 1-year. Tasha’s husband and her have a huge heart for all JUSTICE matters and run a collective group, Love Is A Verb, who partners with 8 Non-Profit Organizations connecting dots for people to find their passion in serving and loving others. They are planted in Atlanta, Georgia and call Passion City Church their home.

Chloe was born with a severe foot deformity.  She has had numerous operations and faced daunting challenges but has always met each hurdle with emotional strength and grace.  In 2014, Chloe was a victim of assault and bullying at her high school. Six months later, she had the courage to begin telling her story. She met Bono who spoke powerful words about fighting injustice.  This became a turning point for Chloe and would mark a recovery story that builds in strength with each re-sharing.
