Meet Mac Elvis
Q: Who is Mac Elvis in brief?
A: Mac Elvis like I like saying is the last born of 3 boys who got to know about Christ Jesus and there fore gave his life to Him in his Primary 6 way back as a young boy in the year 1999 after watching the Heavens Gates and Hell’s Flames drama. Having been in the Church that early, I thought I was missing out on the fun outside the church so I opted to go out looking out for it elsewhere in the bars and the clubs and did everything that was in my reach at the time.
It was after I lived that way and feeling empty at the end of it all that I was ambushed by the Holy Spirit and arrested by the Grace of God that I found my self going back to church without anyone preaching to me. I finally recommitted my life to the Lord of my life Jesus Christ on Easter Monday 2003 at a First Love Music Concert, so that explains why music has been, is and will always be a part of my life.
Born Mutalya Mac Elvis, I decided to add meaning to my Mac name after a youth fellowship I attended some time and my friend pointed out Eph. 2 that refers to believers as people who have been Made Alive in Christ. (M.A.C) I hope thats brief, ha-ha
