Rubi Green The New Princess of Gospel music

 

Rubi Green is the daughter of music royalty, her parents are Legendary Artist and Rev. Al Green and Shirley Green .Music has been a part of Rubi's life since as long as she can remember. As a child she started singing with her sisters at church.Even though she enjoyed singing, as she grew older she went on to pursue a degree in Speech Pathology. After she graduated she traveled  the world as a background singer for her father. She knew then that she had found her calling by ministry and  through singing she could  bring souls to Christ. She is currently on tour and has been featured on other sites including LOTLRADIO THE QUIET STORM
 WOVA         Kickmag  forwardmovement   SMT Daily     
But took the time out of her schedule to be featured  here is our Exclusive:






KSY:Take us  on the journey of finding your calling?

RB:When I was a little girl my mother used to make me and my sisters sing all the time. I hated it because I was so shy and I couldn’t overcome the paralyzing stage fright. Well, as I grew older I became more comfortable singing, but I still didn’t want to be a singer. When I went to college I decided that I wanted to go into a field where I could help others, so, I majored in Speech Pathology. While in college, me and my sister, Kora, were given an opportunity to write and record our own material in hopes of getting a record deal. This sparked a new interest in singing and music as a whole, and I began to love it. It was then that I wanted to sing professionally. After graduating college I began singing background for my father, Al Green. It was fun and exciting and I was in love with being on the road. After singing background for about a year, I rededicated my life to Christ. As my relationship with the Lord grew stronger, I knew that my mission in life was to gain more followers for Christ through the music God had placed on my heart. I was ready to share everything God had given me with the world.

KSY:How did your mother and father feel about you entering into the music industry?Did you father give you any pointers? 

RB: My parents are very supportive about me entering the music industry. My mother didn’t support the idea when I wanted to sing R&B, but when I decided to sing Christian music she was all for it. My father, on the other hand, has always been supportive of me singing, no matter what genre of music I chose to sing. But, I’m sure he’s happier that I’m singing Christian music. My dad talks to me about my career all the time. His main point is to always be yourself. Don’t try to sing like anybody else. Nobody can do what you do. That has really helped me because there was a time when I couldn’t vocally find “my style.” When I stopped trying to find “my style” and just sang is when everything started to line up for me musically.

KSY: You have released two singles your latest single More and Mountaintop is there an follow up LP?

RB:There is a follow up LP. I’m currently working on “Thank You Lord.” It’s an upbeat song. I really love it. It is set to be released in July.

 

KSY:Tell us about your foundation? what made you start your own foundation Precious Rubies?

RB: Precious Rubies is basically about helping young girls feel more comfortable sharing Christ with others. When you’re in school and something is not necessarily the “cool” thing to do, kids tend to not mention their involvement with it, especially when it comes to religion. I talk to young girls about not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ and how to be a better witness as a young person. In the future, I want to develop witnessing teams where we go out and witness at different group homes and even on the street. We, as Christians, have to be bolder. And I feel that if we start  young then when they are older the world will be full of young adults and adults who are excited about sharing the gift of Christ with the world.


KSY:What advice could you give to young girls about "standing for something" when that is not displayed in the media or by their peers?

RB:Most young people today are really out-going, but it seems that they’re outgoing about all the wrong things. When talking to young people, I want them to understand and realize that the unsaved use profanity and vulgarity without a second thought. So why is it that when it’s time to speak about Jesus everyone is offended. The unsaved don’t seem to care who they offend. So why do we, as young Christians, act so afraid and tight lipped about what we believe in? It’s time to stand up and be bolder. Be a leader. 


KSY: What was it like travel all over the world touring with your father? what is the difference about touring by yourself?

RB: It’s so much fun touring with my dad. It’s like a family experience. I sing background vocals with my sisters and my dad, of course, is singing the lead. The difference is, when I’m on the road with my dad we sing love songs, we dance on stage, and we have a lot of fun. When I sing alone it’s more about ministering. It’s still lots of fun, because I love what I do, but I’m more focused on souls being saved and the praise and worship aspect of the concert.

KSY: )How did you make a conscious decision to follow your passion and stick with it?

RB:It may seem like an easy task to stick with my passion because I absolutely love to sing and I love the Lord, but sometimes it can be difficult. Being an Indie artist is a lot of hard work. When the hard work becomes overbearing it seems easier to throw in the towel. But after praying about it and thinking about the bigger picture, it’s all worth it in the end.



KSY:What advice would you give someone who wanted to follow in your footsteps?


RB:The only advice I can offer is to make sure this is what you want to do. Everyone is ready for the reward. But can you say that you’re ready for the hard work and the long nights? Are you ready for the disappointments? I would be lying if I said that let downs didn’t come along with the job. But as I stated earlier, it’s all worth it in the end.






KSY:What do you want people to know about you? 

RB:I want people to know that I’m serious about my relationship with Christ. I’m not willing to compromise that. I’m serious about my music. I’m serious about my career as a whole. I want the Lord to bless my career more than I could ever imagine, all for His glory of course. But all in all, I’m just Rubi. I’m a homebody. I love to watch movies. I love fashion. I’m a pretty simple girl.

KSY:  Do you have any upcoming projects or events.

RB: Go get my new single “More” and my first single “Mountain Top” on iTunes. And look out for my next single “Thank You Lord” coming in July!! Go to rubigreen.com!! GOD BLESS YOU!!
