In 2002, Elder Beebe and his childhood friend, Harry Patton released their debut album, “The Covenant Project,” by Partners in Christ. The project is an exciting mix of jazz, Latin, gospel, and other influences. The group followed up with their 2010 CD entitled “Called.” Recently, Beebe released his first solo project, “Sonny Side Up.” “Sonny Side Up” inspires listeners to look to the Son of Man and see the brighter side of life. Beebe was influenced greatly by his father Roy Beebe (Musician and composer), his mother Margie Beebe (that allowed him to practice at all hours of the night as a teen) and his music teacher, Dr. Limuel Dokes, who not only taught music, but also helped build character, as well as musicianship.
