The trio will bring several popular Christian acts, including CeCe Winans, Tedashii and Lecrae, over to their new agency. All three initially came to Paradigm after it acquired Third Coasts Artists Agency, which Snider co-owned.

WME has one of the largest booking divisions in Hollywood, vying with CAA for supremacy.
