Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first. All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure. Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

You have an unusual name, tell us more about it?

My birth name is Christopher Grant, known commonly as Chris. When I decided to embark on the gospel music journey, I prayed for confirmation of the name I should use.

Whilst studying the Word of God I came to the scripture 2 Corinthians 5:20, which states: “We are ambassadors for Christ”. I realised that my ministry was to represent Christ, and take the gospel wherever I am lead to; therefore I became ‘Chris Da Ambassada’.

Were you born in Jamaica?

Yes, I was. I resided in Duanvale within the parish of Trelawny. 
Is it true that you are one of Jamaica’s greatest Gospel artist’s? 

Well, I don't think I am. Not sure I want that label either. Honestly, I'm just focused on running my race, staying in my lane and doing what God has called me to do.

Did you know Aylesbury is home to a multi award winning musician who has been recognised by MOBO? Well you do now... meet Christopher Grant aka Chris Da Ambassada. The 30-year-old makes people look good by day in his job as a barber at Salvino’s in Kingsbury and makes them feel good by night as an inspirational reggae gospel artist.

Reggae gospel may not fit into the label of typical mainstream music, but it would be a mistake to ignore Chris’ work on that basis as it is right out of the very top drawer. I should know I have been listening to his debut album Changes on repeat for the last week!

Christopher Grant, aka ‘Chris Da Ambassada’ is delighted to announce the release of his new Single “God Alone”, featuring his wife ‘Chantelle’, taken from his forthcoming album – “Changes.”

Chris had been consumed by reggae from a young age, but a radical encounter with God in 2005 saw his life take a significant change of direction. The 2015 GXMMA Award winner, recalls, “When I was 12, I went to a street concert in Jamaica. It was a Gospel concert, and at the time I wasn’t a Christian.

Chris Da Ambassada' who ministers the undiluted word of God uncompromisingly with power through the gift that the Lord has blessed him with. He is a radical man of God who is not ashamed to preach, teach or sing the gospel of Christ.

He is ready at all times to minister through the God given talents to the world. Chris truly believe that this is his season to bring ‘Changes’ to the world through gospel reggae music.
