Andrew Kwon

About

Independent Christian artist Andrew Kwon was born in Korea and moved to Portland, OR at the age of 10. It was at an early age when he developed a love of music while listening to mostly R&B and Hip Hop. Singing became his passion and eventually he began writing his own music and recording demos at local studios. When he was 16 he moved to Korea and joined a pop group as the lead singer. They toured all over Korea for several years. Although it was a memorable experience for him, the highs and lows of the entertainment industry were overwhelming and he moved back to the US.

In 2000, he had a personal encounter with Jesus. He decided to dedicate his life and the gifts God had given him to make music for Him alone. He recorded his first gospel album titled,“Armor of God” in Kansas City, MO. Years later, Andrew recorded the 2nd album, “All in all” in Los Angeles, CA. Simultaneously, while working on this album, Andrew studied church music at Portland Bible College and graduated as a Voice Major. He also worked as a Music Director and Youth Pastor at his church for many years and continued to work on other Christian artists' albums by arranging and singing background vocals. Currently, Andrew resides in Beaverton, Oregon with his wife of 18 years and three daughters. He has a heart for missions and went to many trips to the Philippines and Thailand ministering through songs and help build shelters for people in need. He wants to use music as a vehicle to reach many lives to Christ. His goal is to inspire, and bring hope to the listeners.
