Joseph Beggs On His Music Career

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 12 years ago. 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 240 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.

At present the Lord has  kept my profile and songs at number 1 now for over 9 months on the  all Ireland National Gospel Charts on Reverbnation.

Songs have also been featured on many internet charts internationally such as shoutlife with over 60,000 profile views to date.
