Eddie Coronado was born to the streets of East L.A. over thirty six years ago and into a family where crime was a way of life. His role models were drug dealers, violent men, and murderers. The destructive nature of his father forced his mother to flee to Juarez, Mexico. She sought refuge with family where Eddie fell prey to sexual abuse at the hands of a trusted relative at the age of seven. The pain and confusion in Eddie's heart were unbearable. Death and destruction were waiting for him around every corner, but God had other plans.
In a small church in El Paso, Texas, Christ found him at the age of eight and Eddie’s life would never be the same. Now the cry of Eddie's heart is Freedom! He knows the power of forgiveness and restoration and it is through his heart of worship in which that message is resonating throughout the world.
Eddie moved to Dallas, Texas to study at Christ for the Nations where he received a Diploma in Practical Theology and an Advanced Diploma in Pastoral Ministry. He has also been featured on several of Christ for the Nation’s praise and worship projects as well as singing with Marco Barrientos and Aliento Music.

Eddie Coronado is living proof of Christ’s life transforming power and the hope that Calvary holds for all.
"From the first time I heard Eddie sing at Christ for the Nations, I knew God's hand was upon him... when Eddie sings, there is a sound of glory that resonates from his voice. It has been wonderful to watch him grow and mature into a worshipper that desires above everything else to point others to Jesus.. His tender heart and transparency in sharing where God has brought him from not only touches others but stirs Heaven. If you have an opportunity to hear Eddie sing...you'll believe it is the language of Heaven. love you bro" Joni Lamb
