Bryann Trejo was born July 4th, 1980 in Corpus Cristi, TX, one of two identical twins. He lived there throughout his adolescent years until settling in Chattanooga, TN at the age of 13. As a result of his involvement in the street-lifestyle, he spent his teenage years in a Juvenile Detention Center for armed robberies and the selling of narcotics. Bryann’s early twenties involved him going in and out of jail. At the age of 23 his life took a turn for the worst. He was facing 30 years in prison for 2 attempted murders in retaliation to an attack on his brother from a rival street drug syndicate. By the grace of God, the charges were lowered. Instead, Bryann was sentenced to 7 years in prison where he served 4 years and was out on probation. As a result, by the age of 28 he spent most of his adult life in prison. Shortly after serving his time, Bryann returned to Chattanooga, TN to be with his family. In May of 2013, his brother Ryann a.k.a. Woo-Woo, was innocently murdered. Those involved falsely assumed “Woo-Woo” played a part in the unfortunate death of a teenager that occurred the week before. When in actuality, the only part “Woo-Woo” played, was attempting to mentor the teenager. But Woo-Woo’s death gave birth to Kingdom Muzic Ministries. A ministry centered in the gospel of Jesus Christ which is a message of freedom, forgiveness of sin and the power to forgive your enemies. Bryann says, “When my brother was killed, Jesus wrote a new song on my heart. Learning to forgive my enemies.” Bryann Trejo goes on tour letting others know that forgiveness is possible.
