Edward, songwriter, rap artist and poet of international repute, more known globally as Edwardlive, has redefined the music adding spiritual touch to it as his songs mostly aim at glorifying the God. He is trying to reach his inspirational songs particularly among the new generation: youth and millennials.

His philosophical bend of mind became self-expressive as he adopted the name Edwardlive. Edward coined this name to denote those friends who departed to heaven yet lives in his memory. In a way, this is his unique humanist way of paying respect to those departed souls.
Here, the term Live represents the fond memory and legacy of Edward’s deceased friends. They continue to Live in his memory and will forever live on in his memory. Combining the two words, we find his popular name EdwardLive.
EdwardLive redefined the rap songs in his own way by blending the element of motivation in it, thus creating a new genre which is liked globally. He is a very good lyricist and songwriter. Naturally, such songs further turn melodious and meaningful.
The audience gets a touch of humanity, philosophy and sentiment in his rap songs. That is why they appeal to the masses globally. Some of his motivational numbers that became global hits include All I Do Is Try, Where Do We Go From, For Me, Diamond in the Sky and I Will Survive.
The beauty of these rap songs is the fact that people often correlate their life’s story with such songs proving their depth and sentimentality. In fact, EdwardLive began writing poems at an early age and later was able to convert them into music.
As a rap singer, he always admired such geniuses like Tupac Shakur, Scarface, Jayz, Nas, Biggie Smalls, Master, and C-murder. As a rap singer, EdwardLive attempted to link his poetry with the current human society in which such trends as hopelessness, single parents and violence marks the ongoing trends.
It is here where he wants to raise the faith of mankind in God and help them find solace and peace through the words of his poetry that he converts as inspirational rap songs.
