JMIAH is the founder and owner of LRCMG and a new Hip-Hop artist who uses his talents of singing and rapping to glorify God.
Jeremiah (JMIAH) Lopez was born and raised in Los Angeles California. At the young age of three, he was declared an orphan, when he lost his mother to cancer and his father was locked up in prison. It seemed his only option was an orphanage, but by God’s sovereign plan, his grandparents took him in and raised him. Growing up JMIAH was fighting a constant void. His grandparents would take him to church weekly, but for him it was only a routine. Loneliness, numbness, and emptiness caused JMIAH to look to friends and popularity to make him feel complete. At his lowest points he even contemplated suicide. He recalls thinking, “Why not? I’m alone in this world anyways.” Unknowingly to JMIAH, Jesus Christ was creating a strong foundation in him and reassuring him that he was never alone.
In 2010, God met JMIAH in a special way which led him to rededicate his life to Jesus Christ. He recounts, “I started getting involved with heavy drinking and since I had always felt that God left me alone without my parents, I was just depressed lost and missing something. My wife (who was my girlfriend at the time) kept encouraging me to go try another church that her grandma kept inviting us to. I was stubborn for quite some time until after a family incident I knew God had a plan for my life and was calling me back.” For the first time in his life, he felt that the void was filled. Since that moment, he has been growing in God’s Word and under godly leadership.
A love for music had been present in JMIAH’s life since his youth. When he was six years old, he started playing drums with his church’s worship team. He reminisces, “I learned what it was to be the heartbeat.” Since that time, he has developed a love for singing and writing his own songs. He wants to use his testimony and his musical talent to reach many for God’s glory.
The vision that God gave him years ago to start creating music and to share it globally has now become a reality.
JMIAH has spent the past year working in the studio with Light Records Recording Artist Tripple M as they came together and collaborated to create “Make Them Believe” which is now available for pre-order on iTunes!
