Just before Good Friday it was revealed that Christian rapper Tedashii, who is originally from Houston, recently lost his 1-year-old son.
No specifics were provided, but his label did post a blog entry on their website urging fans to pray and even financially support the artist and his family as they mourn this great loss.
The Reach Records website notes:
This month Tedashii’s family suffered a terrible tragedy. His one year old boy passed away. Please join us as we encourage and bless our brother Tedashii and his family at this time. Read the blog (below) from His Voice Global to find out how you can help.
Tedashii’s family has suffered a terrible tragedy this month. His one year old boy passed away. As we grieve with him and his family we also want to bless them. As you know, Tedashii’s job takes him from city to city where he performs and blesses thousands of people with his art. In this time, we want to offer him the opportunity to stay home with his family, grieve, begin to heal, seek the Lord, be comforted and to comfort. The perception is that if one is a traveling musician, they have more money than they know what to do with. The fact is, that is just not true. We want to bless him with the gift of not having to worry about being on the road to make ends meet. Our goal: To provide for our brother and his family for 6 months. This means raising enough money to cover all of the family’s expenses. Join us in caring for our dear friends.

Just two weeks ago Tedashii completed a 20-date tour as part of The Rock & Worship Roadshow with MercyMe, Jeremy Camp, Kutless, and others.
