Pure-N-Heart is a ministry for children and teens originating in cities of the Upstate, South Carolina (Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Seneca, Greenwood) under the influence of Music2ChangeU Records. Pure-N-Heart is the first gospel music artist to receive a Stellar Award nomination from the Upstate, South Carolina.
Pure-N-Heart is made up of approximately 400 children and teens that continues to grow in membership and continues to expand across geographic locations. Members of Pure-N-Heart originate from the Upstate and includes membership in Augusta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina. Pure-N-Heart workshops have been held in across the following states: South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Delaware.
South Carolina natives, Alphaeus and Alexias Anderson, are the founders of Pure-N-Heart ministries which began as a children's choir, but it is now two distinct artists: Pure-N-Heart Kids and Teen Pure-N-Heart. July 2003 marked the first musical recording for Pure-N-Heart, and in July 2010 Teen Pure-N-Heart made their debut. The mission of Pure-N-Heart is to impact and connect with children and teens across nations and cultures around the world through the arts while implementing a kingdom agenda[clarification needed]. Through music and networking, Pure-N-Heart is breaking ground in the gospel music industry and creating an avenue for other South Carolinian artists to pursue endeavors in the gospel music industry.
