Soul Survivor has been consistent in it's development of young worship leaders who have impacted the worshipping church worldwide. Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Martyn Layzell, Vicky Beeching, Lex Buckley and now Ben Cantelon.

Ben Cantelon communicates beautifully through the gift of music. He can sing and also plays acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keyboard, drums and a bit of bass guitar. He has become very popular for his boyish looks and sensational work done with Surreal, his debut band. Due to gaining a position as an intern at Soul Survivor Church in Watford, England, Ben Cantelon parted company with the other Surreal boys and left his home and native land of Canada.

Ben Cantelon is the current Worship Director at Soul Survivor, Watford where he heads up the worship as well as leading at the UK events and Soul Survivor festivals around the world. Ben Cantelon was featured on the 2006 Soul Survivor album, Love Came Down. He wrote the opening song "Celebrate" and the title track "Love Came Down", as well as co-writing "Happy Day" with Tim Hughes. In 2007, Ben Cantelon led worship at both Soul Survivor and Momentum and featured on the recent live album Living For Your Glory.
