At the tender age of 3 years old, his mother realized that he was blessed with a gift to entertain. A native of St. Louis, MO, Larry began singing and dancing in numerous talent shows around the city where he frequently won 1st Place. When Larry was 16 years old, he decided to pursue a professional career in the entertainment field by moving to California which led him to touring around the world and gracing the stages with such artists as MC Hammer, TLC, and Boyz II Men. Some of his television performances include The Billboard Awards, Grammy’s, American Music Awards and Saturday Night Live. Larry was also a friend of Tupac, Dr. Dre, Sean “Diddy” Combs, and was the God brother of the founder of gangster rap, Easy E of the rap group NWA. But one day Larry realized that the life he was living promoted negative images and was damaging the lives of others – especially the youth, who seem to glorify the life of wealth and fame. In 1995, Larry’s life began to change for the better. He accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into his life. Then in 1999, he accepted the call to ministry as a licensed minister and youth chaplain.
While the earlier years of his life focused on showcasing his talents for entertainment purposes, Larry now only uses the gifts and talents that he’s been blessed with to glorify God. He has worked with such artists as Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Kim Burrell, Marvin Sapp, Tonex, Virtue and others. As an accomplished Christian rap artist, songwriter, producer and author, Larry is CEO & Co-Founder, along with his wife Paris, of independent gospel label ForWord Records. His mentor is James Roberson, Founder of JDI Records. Larry released his debut album in 1999 entitled, “I Can’t Stop Thanking God”. His sophomore album “Walking By Faith” was released in 2001. On this powerful, spirit filled CD, Larry takes Gospel music to another level that’s guaranteed to bless your heart, mind and soul. He also shares part of his testimony speaking about being a victim of child abuse and assuring other children that they can make it out of a horrible situation. His third CD entitled “To God Be The Glory,” was released in March 2005 which was followed by his forth CD entitled “I Love Jesus”. He has just completed his fifth CD entitled “God’s Love Is Neverending” which will be released in the near future.
Although Larry is anointed with the gift of music, his calling is as a Minister first. Larry and Paris attend The House of Deliverance Church in Berkeley, MO. Larry & Paris are both very active members at their church as he is the Youth Chaplain and they are both Youth Sunday School teachers. Larry also tours around the world preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and has ministered through word and song at numerous speaking engagements across the country. He teaches special programs to children in the public schools and he has created his own music seminars, and has spoken at several others as well, where he shares information to inspiring artists, singers, song writers, producers, etc. And if that isn’t enough to keep him busy, Larry is also the Co-Host of the radio program “Let’s Talk Music” on KSTL 690 AM. He and his wife have also started an organization called “Young People Living Right, Inc.” teaching at risk youth on being positive through education and music also. The objective is to offer an alternative to doing things that are not good in the eyesight of God and offering love as God’s Word tells us to do. Larry’s first and foremost priority is his love and responsibility as a man of God. Visit www.myspace.com/larryrodgers

Uphold me according to Your promise, that I may live; and let me not be put to shame in my hope!Psalm 119:116
1"(A)Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the Yahuwah your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, Yahuwah your God (B)will set you high above all the nations of the earth.
2"All these blessings will come upon you and (C)overtake you if you obey Yahuwah your God:
3"Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be (D)in the country.
4"Blessed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground and the offspring of your beasts, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock.
5"Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
6"Blessed shall you be (E)when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
7"Yahuwah shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways.
8"Yahuwah will command the blessing upon you in your barns and in (F)all that you put your hand to, and He will bless you in the land which Yahuwah your God gives you.
9"(G)Yahuwah will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways.
10"So all the peoples of the earth will see that (H)you are called by the name of Yahuwah, and they will be afraid of you.
11"(I)Yahuwah will make you abound in prosperity, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your beast and in the produce of your ground, in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you.
12"Yahuwah will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and (J)you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
13"(K)Yahuwah will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of the LORD your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully,

"There are times in life when we are called to be bridges, not a great monument spanning a distance and carrying loads of heavy traffic, but a simple bridge to help one person from here to there over some difficulty such as pain, grief, fear, loneliness, a bridge which opens the way for ongoing journey.When I become a bridge for another, I bring upon myself a blessing, for I escape from the small prison of self and exist for a wider world, breaking out to be a larger being who can enter another's pain and rejoice in another's triumph. I know of only one greater blessing in this life, and that is, to allow someone else to be a bridge for me."
