In 2002, if you were to tell B-Nard and Ursela that they would become the anointed husband and wife Christian rap team the Jesus has made them today; they would have probably laughed at you and said “yeah right”. But when Jesus has a plan for you, it will happen. They met in a studio in 2002 to only later to be united in marriage in 2005. During this time they were pursuing their own careers in music; Ursela as the hip-hop artist “FIN” and B-Nard as the r & b soloist “RBP”. They teamed up to become the secular hip-hop team “FIN & RBP”. But being active members in their church and hearing the Word of God reformed them to make a change in their individual lives altogether. B-Nard re-dedicated his life and Ursela dedicated her life to Jesus. During this time Jesus spoke to B-Nard and told him to stop secular music and minister musically in gospel. With that being said they teamed up as the Christian rap group B-U.
B-U meaning is “being-used by Jesus Christ”.
Trusting GOD and being obedient in ministry, B-U has won the Holy Hip-Hop Artist of the Year Award for the North Carolina Gospel Announcer’s Guild for the year 2008. B-U has received 2 Rhythm of Gospel Award nominations in 2009, 2 Independent/Inspirational Gospel Music Award (IGMA) nominations and is a two time winner of 2010 Rhythm of Gospel Award. They were winners in the category of Holy Hip Hop Group of the Year and Holy Hip Hop Song of the Year for the single, ‘Righteous Know Why’. B-U’s main focus is telling the truth about Jesus Christ to the youth and young at heart as they continue to minister to all in their unique fashion that God has instilled in them. Their ministry is based on this quote:
“This we do for Christ!”
