   Jason Meachum
Anointed, Bold, Radical, Impressive  are just a few words used to describe Rev. Jason F. Meachum. Jason Meachum was born to Rev. & Sis. Clifford B. Meachum, Jr. on February 7, 1982.  Jason was both a blessing and a surprise for his proud parents.  Although frequently ill, Jason was always active and happy. Nothing could stop him once he put his mind to it, as evidence in his participation in band and also playing on the basketball team throughout his school years. 
At an early age, Jason displayed and interest and desire to play the piano.  At the age of 3, he would bang or “play” any flat surface he could find.  He would sit for hours pretending to play the piano.  Jason started formal music lessons at the age of 8 at the Yamaha Music School.  He later began private music lessons with Mrs. J. Hickman.  His musical talent grew through his continued study and a God-given gift to “hear the music.” God blessed Jason to increase his gifts and later began to accompany the musicians at Starlight Missionary Baptist Church.  Years later, Jason became the Lead musician and soloist for Starlight.  Currently he serves as Starlight’s lead musician and choir director.  Jason has also become a multitalented musician and songwriter, mastering the keyboard, organ, drums and bass guitar.   
Jason’s very personal life experiences have inspired many of the songs for his upcoming album.  The members of Destined are just as on fire for God as Jason is. Jason hand-picked every member of Destined, the singers, musicians and staff members.  The rehearsals are anointed, the singers, the musicians and the character of each and every member is anointed.  Jason’s hope for this album is that it will inspire people to learn how to truly worship and praise God.
