Kenneth Cope was born June 12, 1961 in Salt Lake City as the third of six children. He grew up in Houston, Texas, and attended the High School for the Performing Arts before leaving for Switzerland and France to serve an LDS mission. He began his singing/songwriting career by recording the 1986 Especially For Youth (EFY) theme song and went on to compose numerous songs for seven albums produced for the EFY Program.
Kenneth shares some of his thoughts: “I decided a long time ago that I was going to devote my energy and my talents to making the name of Jesus Christ greater on the earth. It propels every choice, every decision. I hope to create new ways for people to see Jesus Christ – to offer a new vantage point and open eyes. To show how He is in everything, because really, it is all about Him.” “I strongly believe that if we are doing with our lives those things God wants us to do, He will open the way for us to continue in our path and consistently bring about more good.”
