Meet Andre and Rachel Hudson of Pioneer Spirit in Santee

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andre and Rachel Hudson.

Andre and Rachel, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
My wife Rachel and I started this company originally as an avenue to release original song content, to write books under and to use for speaking engagements/trainings. So far we have released four songs total the first being “Blessings After.”

This song was inspired by a time of trial that our family went through from 2011-13 when our two yr old daughter Olivia was diagnosed with brain cancer. The song was written in a hospital room at Children’s Hospital in San Diego. I myself am a Pastor, and my wife Rachel is a businesswoman. This season grew a passion in us to see others comforted and experience breakthrough from different bondages that life’s experiences can put us in.

The Olivia Hudson foundation was started in honor of our daughter who went to be with Jesus in 2013, which helps family’s with similar circumstances in need, but Pioneer Spirit is more of an artistic approach to achieve the healing of the soul through songs and speaking/training resources. As of right now, the songs are the only current completed resource.

Another spark that lit a sense of urgency in sharing the song came in 2017 when our story was captured by a documentarist who was inspired. He posted the story on Facebook with the song I had written, and over the course of six months, it tracked upward 1.3 million views.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Smooth in certain ways yes but since the goal is not necessarily fame or money it is mostly just a blessing to hear of how the music has touched people’s lives.

Pioneer Spirit – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Pioneer Spirit is an LLC that was started to protect original song and other writing content. It specializes in all original writing for music or for books.

I am proud that the first single “Blessings After” and the EP “Freedom” are now complete and are available on all major platforms. The money gained will be used for further songwriting and speaking engagements where my wife and I can help others into complete freedom in their lives from things like depression suicide etc.

I think what sets us apart is our goal is actually to see others succeed. This is why we have also traveled the world this past year to places like Peru, Philippines, and India serving in homes, prisons, orphanages, and churches. The music through the company provides the awareness for such invites.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success is when you are fully walking out your purpose in life. Your purpose will usually be tied in with your passions and will often involve your personal perseverance in life. We call this your testimony which is one of your most powerful tools for future success.
