Rick Cua is an American Christian rock singer, songwriter, bassist, author and ordained minister. He is a former member of the Southern rock band, Outlaws, whom he joined in 1980, but left in 1983 to pursue a full-time career in contemporary Christian music, the year after, wherein he gained popularity throughout most of the 1980s as a leather-jacket-wearing rocker with an arena rock sound featuring big, shout-along choruses. Upon signing to Reunion in 1988, his works began to take on a softer, more radio-friendly tone that included "sentimental ballads and pop-rock anthems in the style of Michael Bolton." Cua left Reunion in 1992, creating his own label, UCA Records, on which he recorded three studio albums in the 1990s but received little radio play. He has also won several Dove and Grammy Awards. Cua took a hiatus from recording in 1998 and went to work as Vice President of the Creative Department at EMI Christian Music Publishing, where he stayed until 2003.
