"Christian rap artist makes visit to campus"

Females are steadily entering the field of Christian rap. Professor Pollard's Introduction to Gospel Music class invited Kiwi, who is a Christian rapper and promoter. About 60 people attended.

Kiwi has been known for her rapping style and her promotion skills.

Kiwi discussed her background singing traditional gospel with members of her family, what influenced her to go into Christian rap. She also performed some of the raps she wrote when she was as young as 8 or 9.

Pollard said, "What was most impressive to many was her ability to not only present her latest, soon to be recorded rhymes, but to talk about her early work producing an all-urban/Christian rap CD, as well as her work of the last few years in radio promotions for The Cross Movement their label, as well as other artists." The Cross Movement is one of the biggest groups in Christian rap.

Kiwi shared with the class and other attendee's part of a documentary done on Christian rap. This helped the class to get even a greater feel for Christian rap and hip-hop music, and how it plays in the music industry of gospel music.

Pollard said, "I have gotten tremendous responses from my students and my colleagues about her presentation - what she taught them, her performance style and how surprised some of them were to find such a tiny woman with such mad skills,' as one put it."

Other faculty present were Dr. Gloria House, Dr. Jamie Lee and Dr. Marilee Benore Parsons. There were also members of the greater Detroit community.

Kiwi was able to discuss her challenges entering a male-dominated area of gospel music. Kiwi is considered a well-respected Christian hip-hop and rap performer and promoter.
