Rebecca Shocklee (born September 1, 1978, née Wilson), better known by her stage name Beckah Shae, is an American Christian-pop-worship singer-songwriter. She is signed to the independent record label Shae Shoc Records she co-owns with her husband and producer Jack Shocklee.[10][11][12]

History[edit]

Shae received her first Dove Award nomination in 2011 in the category of Urban Recorded Song of the Year for "Life".[13] She also appeared on Jonny Lang's Turn Around (A&M), TobyMac's "Funky Jesus Music", Tonight (ForeFront) and joined him onstage for a performance at the 2010 GMA Dove Awards.[14] Shae co-wrote several songs and featured on the title-track of Montell Jordan's album, Shake Heaven (Victory World Music), and is currently featured on Byron "Mr. Talkbox" Chambers' EP Show Me the Way on the track "Everything Works Together".[15] Shae also appears on the movie soundtrack I'm in Love with a Church Girl.[16] She has shared her testimony on CBN's The 700 Club and RevolutionTV,[17] hosted JCTV's "1 Music Village", and has appeared on TBN's Praise The Lord for its 2011 Christmas Special with Donnie McClurkin.[18]

The single "#putyourloveglasseson" was released on April 12, 2011.[19]

Philanthropy[edit]

Shae has traveled, promoting and working alongside ministries like Kids Alive International, an organization that rescues abandoned and orphaned children. After a visit to Kenya in 2010 with Kids Alive,[20] she filmed the music video, "Imagine", from her album LIFE, expressing her desire to "see others open up their eyes to the need and make a difference by becoming involved in sponsorship, adoption and missions." In 2011 she traveled with The A21 Campaign to Greece and acted as a "walking billboard", with matching shirts and taped mouths, as part of an initiative to raise awareness of human trafficking.[citation needed] On July 28, 2011 Shae performed and linked arms with keynote speaker Dr. Bernice King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., at the Women and Girls Benefit Luncheon held on the campus of Lipscomb University in Nashville, to raise funds for Youth Life Learning Centers (a program of Youth Life Foundation of Tennessee).[21]
