Today they still stand side by side as young men and the Godly bond of friendship that exists between Gregs, Young Pete, and Carvin H has formed a foundation for the rap ministry that has chosen them.
Their relationship with each other is very important to each one of them and more meaningful than the music industry. But both their love for each other and music is founded on their love for Jesus, the Son of God who was sent to die for the world.
REMIX'D are still trying to come to grips with the overwhelming Grace that God has shown each one of them as individuals.
Life was not always easy for any of the members and they have all been at a place of despair at some time in their life but through it all they stood tall. It is only by the Grace of a never failing God that they stand and not one of them can boast.
To preachthe Gospel of Jesus Christ as the living saviour to the generation they were blesseed to be a apart of.
