Jonathan David Helser & Melissa Helser
Jonathan and Melissa Helser have been a part of the Bethel Music Collective since 2014, bringing with them a rich history of passionate worship. The Helser’s yearn to see a generation encounter the love of God, and their music reflects their collisions with His love.
The Helser’s are known for their hit “Raise A Hallelujah”, an anthem written as a declaration of healing and hope; the song was featured on Bethel Music’s VICTORY (2019) album and reached #1 on Christian Billboard charts. “No Longer Slaves”, appearing on Bethel Music’s We Will Not Be Shaken (2015), won “Worship Song of the Year” at the 47th Annual GMA Dove Awards in 2016. The couple recorded their latest studio album We Rise We Bow (2019) in North Carolina through their artist collective Cageless Birds. The album was inspired by the collective’s personal stories, friendships, and the time spent fighting for the next generation.
The Helser’s are featured on Bethel Music’s most recent album Peace, Vol. II (2021) singing “You Came (Lazarus), as well as Homecoming (2021) singing “I Believe”, Bethel Music En Español (2019) with their “No Longer Slaves” hit in Spanish, “Ya No Soy Esclavo”, and on Have It All (2016) with their song “Thank You”. Jonathan carries the message of sonship and eloquently displays the heart of the Father in his well-known songs such as “Abba” and “You Came”, featured on The Helser’s album, Beautiful Surrender released in 2016. Melissa’s life displays fierce strength and confidence, expressed in her songs “Beautiful Surrender”, “Catch the Wind”, and “Strength”.
The Helser’s live with their two beautiful children in Sophia, North Carolina, where they lead a discipleship school called The 18 Inch Journey. They also lead a collective of artists called the Cageless Birds, whose mission is to craft songs, art, and goods that encourage others into wholeness and freedom as children of God.
