About Dr. Mason Betha
In 1999, with his 2nd album released, his life took an abrupt turn. He remembered the prophecy over his life at the age of 12 that he would be used in a mighty and compelling way to change the world. Searching for truth and yielding to a higher calling, he stunned the music industry with news of his retirement to “pursue his faith”.
Early in his retirement, Mason realized he was called to motivate people to recognize their fullest potential and true purpose, which would in turn lead them to total life prosperity. In 2001, S.A.N.E. (Saving A Nation Endangered) Church International was birthed, now El Elyon International Church. He additionally received two Honorary Doctorate degrees, including an Honorary doctorate of Theology, that he received in 2002, from St. Paul's Bible Institute in New York, NY.
About Canton Jones
With a Grammy nod, a Stellar Award nomination, and three Gospel Choice Awards to his credit, Canton still maintains the unshakable confidence of someone who knows the tide is turning his way. More than an artist, CJ represents a philosophy, a movement, and a generation relentlessly advancing a positive new sound in the industry. He understands that it is not just about the music, but about a lifestyle that offers peace and prosperity for anyone bold enough to pursue their purpose.
