I got to rap for Israel Houghton

April 14, 2012 | By | No Comments

I am a HUGE Israel Houghton and New Breed fan!

Last night I went to see Israel Houghton and New Breed live at my church. They were AWESOME and I sang along to all my favourite songs.

At the end of the night, while I was in the foyer of the church, Krystal and Shawn from New Breed came out to talk to everyone. Before I knew what was happening I was rapping for them. They were so excited and asked me to rap again so they could record me on their phones.

Remember…God made men equal

February 25, 2012 | By | No Comments

In the movie Amazing Grace John Newton declares to William Wilberforce, “God sometimes does his work with a gentle drizzle.”  Sometimes our efforts can seem so insignificant in the face of the 27 million children and adults that are still being exploited around the world in slavery, and the 22,000 children who die each day due to poverty.  However, I am a great believer in that if we can just change even one life, there is great power in this.

February 11, 2012 | By | No Comments

Judo has been asking to get on stage and rap with his brother JoJo Rock for over a year now. We finally thought he was ready and today he got on stage at a Krosswerdz function and performed for the first time.

He lost all his dance moves when he got in front of the audience, but he did well for his first time. Go Judo!

JoJo Performs First Open Mic at Krosswerdz

January 29, 2012 | By | No Comments

JoJo attended the Krosswerdz Hip Hop church in Sydney on Saturday 29th January. What an amazing experience!

Krosswerdz is a group of Hip Hop artists who have a positive Christ centered message in their music. They have been super supportive of JoJo.

JoJo has been listening to the Krosswerdz music over the last months and was able to meet his favourite rappers today incuding Oakbridge, Izzy, Wisdom, 21 Monks and Mistery. Of course The Profit was also there, JoJo’s favourite rapper who has become a good friend.

At the end of the night there was an open mic where anyone can get up and bust a few rhymes. JoJo was pumped all night and jumped up for the first time and gave it everything he had. Check out the video to see how he went.

On the way home JoJo couldn’t stop talking about meeting all his new found rapping heroes and playing basketball with Izzy.

I was blessed to see the Krosswerdz guys encouraging and spending time with JoJo. He was so excited. What a great bunch of role models for JoJo in the Hip Hop scene.
