This competition took place for six weeks with forty contestants. I won first place and went on to making guest appearances on radio, TV and news articles. What is your ministry? I am a Hip-hop spoken word of God soloist who occasionally performs with a live Dj, backup singer, and Band. My ministry is reciting the Bible, word for word, King James Version. The twist is that when I recite a chapter, I seperate the verses into three sections like your average song. I use a particular part of the same scripture to create a chorus and bridge. It comes across like any other song; most people don't know I am reciting the word. They just think it is a nice sentiment. It's what I like to call, "Word-Ship-Hop.” Are you currently working on any projects? Currently, I am finishing up my album which is being produced by a very talented, Universal/Motown, recording artist. I am also presently working on a music video, which is scheduled to air on "Christian Music Videos" on Dish Network. What is your vision for the future? My vision is to recite God's word on all styles of music to reach all kinds of people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to encourage those that know him already, and to bring the Word of God in the vehicle of hot music as an evangelistic technique. Not begging people to receive Jesus, but taking them down a road that will expose them to their own sin through the law of God's word, showing them their need for a savior and why Jesus is that savior, and then giving them the antidote, God’s son, "Jesus Christ." I also like to encourage, young people especially, who are in the faith to use their gifts and talents whether that be music, skateboarding, or any artistic ability. To speak the language of the culture without compromise, in sharing their faith. My personal preference of encouragement is in concerts, radio, television, and media. Therefore, I foresee myself infiltrating this young generation with the message of God’s love as a recording artist. "This is a voice that needs to be heard in all generations, a word that I believe has no denominational boundaries, a word that is clearly needed in a world in need of hope."
