Jelani Greenidge is a vocalist, songwriter, arranger, and producer with experience across various genres of music including gospel, jazz, hip-hop, pop, alternative rock, and various flavors of Caribbean island music. These experiences have served him well in the launch of Motif Worship, a keyboard training resource for worship leaders. Additionally, he uses accompaniment tracks with his latest group, Jelani & The Secret Five, whose latest EP is available to stream or download.

Jelani Greenidge is also part of the hip-hop crew The Iccsters. As G-Natural, he rhymes alongside Sahaan “Sir-1” McKelvey, a minister and mentor to at-risk youth and young adults across the city of Portland. Since 2000, The Iccsters have been ministry-minded veteran rappers who rhyme with a passion to engage believers and unbelievers alike. Alternately serious and funny, deeply metaphorical and boldly forthright, they dabble in a variety of styles as they inform and entertain.

Also, in 2011 Jelani contributed two original tunes as theme songs for Making It Count Programs high school presentations.
