Meet Rebekah Maddux El-Hakam

By Admin on April 29, 2013

Born and raised in a suburb of Houston, Texas, contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Rebekah Maddux El-Hakam (pronounced Hawk-um) returned home to Houston from Los Angeles, California in 2004. It was then that the deeply passionate El-Hakam started a family and began to focus her attention on music and community. What followed was a plethora of new songs, worship services and concerts. In late 2011, El-Hakam caught the attention of Nashville-based record producer, Marshall Altman (Amy Grant, Brooke Fraser, Audrey Assad). She collaborated with Altman on her debut effort, a full-length album, Radiant You, which released on September 18, 2012. 

Radiant You has been met with much critical acclaim. NewReleaseTuesday exclaims "Together, Rebekah and Altman have a created a dazzling, remarkable record with a wonderful purity of heart." Adding the "title track "Radiant You" is arrestingly beautiful! The song's inventive, effervescent music captures the shining purity of God's love for us. Rebekah's voice is sunny, bright, and brimming with jubilance...You're bound to want to put this one on repeat!" ChristianMusicZine declares, "Rebekah's debut is one to savour and her piano focused pieces are sure to win over the hearts of many, with the lead single "The Glory Of It All" a vertical worship song to Jesus sung with so much emotion! I'd imagine in the near future, this song would make it's way to big radio stations like K-Love or Air1. Well done Rebekah for a thought provoking debut" 

Rebekah serves as a worship leader at her home church, St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church and St. Anne Catholic Church. She and her husband, Moustapha reside in Houston, Texas and have four children.
