joseph beggs / Bio

I am an Evangelist singer/songwriter from Northern Ireland. My song writing skills started after I had taken my guitar to the Ukraine for mission work. Whilst playing I'm in the Lords army at a children's home a young girl who had looked very sad began smiling and clapping her hands as I was playing.
I remember praying on the way home and saying to the Lord that it had been worthwhile to take the guitar all the way to the Ukraine just to bring a smile and a moment of happiness to that young girls face.

Since I came home I felt the Lord guiding me to write songs and to date I have composed over 210 Christian songs.

The Lord has placed songs on local radio in Northern Ireland as well as UCB Ireland and radio stations in the UK ,USA ,Sweden Romania and the Philippines. The CD Thorn Upon A Rose was featured CD on Winds of Praise Broadcasting with worldwide radio airplay.

The song Audience of One was released as part of a compilation album called Building Bridges to raise funds for homeless charities worldwide. Released under Thus Records with an international cast of artistes such as Filipino artist Kichie Nadal, Vlada from Switzerland, Firefalldown (also from the Philippines), Claudia Santiago from Canada, Lebanese band Beatraid, North American hard rockers Unmasked and Honduran artists Gus n Radialband . UK artists on the CD include Andi Oakes, Throne Room, Liz Clarke, Joseph Beggs and Lisa Donnelly.

Also the song I Need You from my first album Here We Stand was at number 1 for over 1 year on the Belfast and all Ireland National Gospel Charts on Reverbnation as well as being No1 National All Ireland Artist now for over 2 years.

Many songs have also been featured on many internet charts internationally such as shoutlife www.shoutlife.com/josephbeggs with over 90,000 profile views to date.

Over the past 12 years I have been involved in missionary outreach to the Ukraine and have visited many Orphanages, Hospitals, Churches, Prisons ,Rehabilitation Centres and a Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre as well as 2 Christian Schools.

I am also involved in Events local and abroad were I have had the joy of Strengthening the body of Christ by speaking in churches in Ireland and England as well as the USA on the movement of the Lord on the mission field as well as revival and eternity.

As well as the Spiritual side of mission outreach I also believe in practical Christianity and many 40 foot containers of humanitarian aid have been sent to the Ukraine Romania and Belarus. Containers have contained Life support machines, heart monitors, Ultra Sound machines, electric beds, Hospital beds wheelchairs, and clothing and shoes for the orphans.

I would also love to be involved in more Event Speaking and Concerts festivals or praise events for charity or other worthwhile causes.
The Album Here We Stand and other albums are for sale on I-tunes Amazon Myspace and other major digital download sites.

All funds raised from sales will go towards Missions.
