Elite Talent Agency was founded by music
Elite Talent Agency was founded by music industry veteran Mark Claassen
(William Morris Agency.) Elite is unique in that we are able to be a full-service
agency, focused on more than booking concerts, we have strategic partnerships
with agents in the film/TV, literary, commercial/sponsorship areas. Elite also has
an in-house tour marketing agent that walks alongside every tour buyer to
maximize each individual show’s potential. http://www.eta-live.com

They call him THE AMBASSADOR…The A-M-B-A! Born William “Duce” Branch,
he represents what appears to be two clashing cultures—the Kingdom of God and hip hop—
but with skillful integration he demonstrates that hip hop can be made to serve the Kingdom.
THE AMBASSADOR, a founding member of the critically acclaimed group
The Cross Movement, stands as a shining example of how hip hop can be properly submitted
to God. This tricky navigation did not develop without a struggle, but God has clearly
maneuvered His steps in the life of a man destined to impact music and the world.

NATE “NF”
FEUERSTEIN
“I grew up in a dysfunctional , abusive environment as a
child, and eventually lost my mom to an overdose. I turned
to music as an outlet to deal with situations that were out of
control in my life. God used music to allow me to express
my emotions, my pain, my anger, and guilt.
Since that time God has grown me and my music. He has developed a passion in me for
all the kids out there that might be going through some of the things I did. That’s why I
rap and write the way I do, the reason my music is raw and real. I believe music should
have real meaning, for real life problems. God has used some of the worst things in my
life for good. By giving me the ability to express myself through music, He not only
ministers to me but blesses me with the opportunity to minister to others as well. I pray
that others will find the One who gave me my comfort in my pain. I hope they develop a
relationship with Him that is so tangible and REAL that you call Him by His name. His
name is Jesus!”
