"Local Movement Speaks Out Against Negative Messages in Popular Music"

Local Movement Speaks Out Against Negative Messages in Popular Music
By Tina Terry, tterry@wagt.com
It's a billion dollar industry, but some believe popular music has an adverse effect on local communities. Sister Shawn, a local radio
disc jockey, grew fond of hip-hop music many years ago.

"I was in love with hip-hop especially when Sugar Hill Gang came out, Run DMC, and LL Cool J," said Shawn.

But she says the music she once loved to love has taken a turn for the worse.

"You have what you call video girls, dope deals being done many being given out through drug dealers," she said.

Shawn and several nationally known recording artists are at the forefront of a movement to turn things around. The movement is called Gospel impact.

"Hip hop is the kind of music that makes you feel hard and strong and when you put the right kinds of lyrics you can make kids feel hard and strong about positive things rather than hard about negative things," said gospel hip hop recording artist Toobiz.

A packed concert Saturday called Springfest featured dozens of artists with this positive message. The message was about living with purpose, integrity, and with faith in God.

It's music with a message Toobiz says even parents should pay attention to.

What I'm saying to you as parents is don't let the business machine take over the culture your kids subscribe to," said Toobiz.

Hundreds attended the Springfest concert. It is an annual event held in Aiken, South Carolina.
