Accept No Alternatives: Meet Christian Trio, FC3 Who is FC3, Jacquia boldly proclaims that “FC3 is more than just a singing group. We are three young ladies called upon to spread the goodness and grace in the Word of the Lord. We are also three gifted young ladies that use the gift of song to praise.” FC3 has one goal: To give everyone an opportunity to know who God is and what He can be for him or her. After just one listen, you know their mission will be accomplished.
The Cleveland, Ohio-based group, made up of members Brittani Coleman (15), Malissa Asberry (15), and Jacquia Lindsay (16), has been performing their infectious blend of R, Hip Hop, and Pop infused gospel across the country, and there’s no slowing down in sight for them.
The group’s message is that each person is a masterpiece created by God, and God puts His signature on every individual. First, He gives us all our own unique set of abilities, gifts and talents that He utilizes in whatever His purpose is for us. Secondly, God is at work in our lives using our experiences to mold us into the person He needs us to be. Thirdly, God gifts are given to us to equip us to minister to the Body of Christ. Indeed, teens need to know that they are special. In a world of mixed messages, where teens are victims of commodity, it is so refreshing to see young girls using their platform to tell their peers that they are far more than another face in the crowd.
There is a Christian music movement that is gaining momentum in the northeast Ohio region, and FC3 is at the forefront being one of the most sought after groups for live performances in this region. In addition, their debut CD “All Because Of You”, was one of the most anticipated in this region. What makes this amazing is that even though the group’s songs are Christian-themed, the response to them has been overwhelming from Christian music consumers as well as all genres of secular music consumers.
FC3 has made an impression on everyone that has seen them. With the sexual or gangster image that many popular recording artists of today portray, the positive image that FC3 exemplifies has made their appeal grow exponentially. Evidence of this appeal is reflected by their most recent invitation to perform for the Cleveland Public Schools? Girl Power Conference for the months of October, November and December of 2003.
FC3 has a creative hand in their music, by co-writing the majority of their songs. Their new CD, “All Because Of You”, boasts a polished signature sound prophetically termed “Urban Pop”. “All Because Of You” marks a new era for Contemporary Christian and Gospel music. This CD has very powerful messages and these three young ladies know how to “bring it”. You’ll praise God, Love the Lord Jesus, and feel The Holy Spirit in the room when you listen to this CD.
