CJ Solomon was raised in the streets of Vallejo California, known mostly for drug dealing, cop killing and prostitution. Like most, he also had a church background but strayed because he didn’t understand the significance of an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. He went full on for the enemy and was involved in everything Satan stands for. At 19 years of age he was living in nice house in Ewa Beach of Hawaii, driving 3 nice cars and performing weekly at clubs and events in Hawaii. While 21 years old, he was incarcerated for shipping drugs to Hawaii. He was guilty of possession of drugs and a firearm. CJ was facing a 10 to12 year Federal Prison sentence with a mandatory minimum of 5 years, which meant he had to serve at least 5 years before released! While In federal prison, he began to study the bible and came to understand who God was according to His word and the grace that He offers. CJ did not want to live the life he was living any longer and told the Lord if he had to serve 10-12 years, he deserved it. He also told Him that he wanted to be a changed man when released. The Lord is truly faithful and He completely transformed CJ. Less than a year later, he walked directly out of the court room on his sentencing day, fortunately giving a second chance. Even though the “law” said he must serve at least 5 years, even though he pleaded guilty for his crimes, CJ’s true Judge, God, poured out His mercy and said otherwise. He poured out His grace upon this young mans life, for His purpose and glory. Now CJ Emulous is vowed to serving God and giving back to the community with his gift of freedom. So many were led astray by the man he used to be, but now so many are receiving hope from his inspiring music and testimony.
