Regeneration: Transforming Secular Songs into Christian Worship [Video]

Craig HueyCulture, Faith1 Comment

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

She remakes popular mainstream songs and turns them into Christian worship songs.

Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” has been heard on YouTube over 2.4 billion times… and topped the music charts for 16 weeks in a row after its release in January 2017 – a record.

Beckah Shae’s version of the song has been played 870 million times on YouTube.

Its’s a fast-paced song with 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.

I love how she does these remakes 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 remakes of:

  • “Sorry not Sorry” by Demi Lovato
  • “Havana” by Camilla 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.
