Releases:[Club David (mixtape)] [I LIVE] [Growing Pains sampler] [Growing Pains Mixtape] [Taste Test (single)]
Info:Anthony Flagg Jr. was born in Memphis, Tennesssee in 1982. He has lived in five different states (Tennessee, South Carolina, Michigan, Oklahoma and Mississippi) since he was born.

Ministry
Anthony's father was a pastor, so Anthony was raised in the church. Living in so many different places, Anthony was exposed to different kinds of people his whole life. He has lived in both predominantly African-American and Caucasian communities at different times.

Rap
Anthony was first exposed to rap music in 1991, when he saw a Kriss Kross video. From then on he fell in love with rap music, and would crave to listen to any he could. He had close friends who introduced him to "East Side", "West Coast", "Down South" and "Up North" styles of music, but he has never had a favorite.

Holy hip hop
Anthony's parents didn't like him listening to a lot of secular music because of the lifestyle it promoted. That really motivated him to create music that Christians could live to and that would minister to everybody.

Neighbourhoods
He grew up in the church but lived in rough neighborhoods most of his life. He was always a basketball player at heart, and would walk anywhere to find a basketball game. God really kept him growing up because he was in more life-threatening situations that he could count. In 1998, Anthony's parents divorced. He moved to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma along with his mother, sister and brother.

Name Fedel
Fedelity music started in the year 2000. Anthony chose his name "Fedelity" by looking for a synonym for "truth". He looked in the thesaurus and "fidelity" was one of the synonyms for truth. He then looked up "fidelity" and the definition embodied many of the things he wanted to characterize in his music. Then Anthony changed the "i" in fidelity to an "e" to make the name more personal.

Beginnings
Anthony started in a group of three people called Narrow Street in the year 2000. Due to life situations the group went their separate ways in the year 2001 after releasing a 7 song EP. That left Anthony solo but the passion for music ministry didn't end there. As Anthony puts it, "Ministry was in my heart since I was a child. Music is a tool and a gift that God has given me." He had a lot of local Christian rap groups that encouraged and influenced him: United Souls, Mass Reality, Chosen 1, Cash Hollister and Reaction. He hung around these artists a lot just to help when he could.

Bible school
Anthony chose to go to Bible school in 2002. Anthony says "those were two of the best years of my life." He wanted to go to Bible school to strengthen the foundation he had in God. One of the main things that he likes about music ministry is the fact that there are millions of people that can be ministered the love of God through music that might not come to church. Also, music encourages a life with Jesus: the Way, the Truth and the Life. Anthony believes that, "A lot of times, people don't reject Jesus, they reject the presentation."

Family
Anthony is married to Kelly. They currently reside in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Nominations
Fedel was nominated for Tulsa's biggest music award: the ninth annual Spot Music Awards 2007 in the category Best Christian Act.

Albums
In 2004 Fedel released his first maxi-single Taste Test containing four tracks. In the year 2006 Fedel released his first full length album called Growing Pains Mixtape. Another mixtape will be released entitled "Club David" in 2007.

Debut Album
His debut album "ILIVE" is scheduled for 2008.
