Being one of the first members of the band, Gregory DeRosa has been a part of Pursuing JC along with his two sisters for most of his life. Throughout the years, he has witnessed the band grow from what used to be a small youth band, to the family it has become today. For the first years of performing, Gregory would feel uncomfortable doing something as little as bob his head to the beat of a song… Now, he is seen running from one side of the stage to the other, with his keytar in hand, jumping and dancing to the music he plays. While his main instrument is very obviously the piano, Gregory also plays the guitar, and hopes to one day be versatile in every instrument known to man. Since he was young, he was always surrounded by music. His dad played the piano and was the reason he first sat behind the keys, and his mom sang worship at church. Because of this, stepping onto a stage seemed natural. As much as Gregory loves music and performing, he currently attends Belmont University, majoring in Nursing. He hopes he can continue his passion for music for the rest of his life.
“The feeling of being on a stage leading people… it's something I can't explain, and something only the people to the left and right of me understand”
