Regeneration: Transforming Secular Songs into Christian Worship [Video]

Craig HueyChurch, CultureLeave a Comment

Beckah Shae is a Christian singer and songwriter with a special gift…

She re-makes popular mainstream songs and turns them into Christian worship songs.

She recently released a re-make of “Shape of You,” a chart-smashing song by Ed Sheeran.

It’s a fast-paced song with a simple melody and fast-paced lyrics that in places sound almost like rap music.

But it’s her lyrics that grab your attention and reveal her passion for the Lord.

Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” has been heard on YouTube over a billion times … and has topped the music charts for 16 weeks in a row – a record.

Beckah Shae’s version of the song has been played 1.3 million times on YouTube.

I love how she does these re-makes to reach out to non-Christians as well as Christians … a great evangelical tool.

I used to invite a Christian singer who remade 1960s songs to perform at my retreats and special events. It was extremely well-received … it works!

In fact, the poem “Amazing Grace” was set to “New Britain,” a popular folk tune, in 1835.

Beckah has also created Christian re-makes of:

  • “Sorry Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato
  • “Havana” by Camila Cabello
  • “Issues” by Julia Michael
  • “Look What You Made Me Do” by Taylor Swift

Shae also produces “Scripture Snacks” – short snippets of Scripture set to music.

Her most recent album, “Mighty,” was released in 2016.
