Come Rock with Me
Cory Ard spent his early life in Washington DC and later moved to Colorado Springs with his mom and siblings. He was raised in the troubled background of gangs, sex, drugs, and a long list of violence. In the midst of being one of the leaders of a local gang with more than 200 members, he realized that if his life didn’t drastically change, it would only be a matter of time before he would be dead or in jail. He found himself at the feet of Jesus and his life has never been the same.
Since coming to Christ he has been a catalyst in seeing God move in the city of Colorado Springs and beyond through outreach and evangelism. Seeing hundreds come to know Christ through outreaches he has led, or has been apart of, it’s evident he has a heart to see God move in the lives of those he encounters every day. Secondary to his passion for Jesus and seeing hopeless people find hope, Cory is a singer, songwriter, and rapper. In his free time, he likes to spend time with his beautiful and talented wife, Ryann Darling, make music, and hang out with friends and family.
People who meet Cory undoubtedly describe him as energetic and passionate. This combination creates an incredible experience at every live show he has the privilege of being a part of. He has been said to give 100% in every performance whether it is in front of 5 people or 5,000. His lyrics and melodies offer a voice to his generation of positivity and hope.
