RapFest 2014

Bringing Jesus To The Hood

Bronx, NY — With 30,000 watts of sound, 26 rap ministries, Rap Fest 2014 brings Jesus to the hood with eight hours of non-stop Gospel Hip-Hop music. In its 21st year, Rap Fest transforms Vidalia Park on the corner of E. 180th Street and Daly Avenue into a holy hip-hop revival, evangelizing the community through hip-hop music and offering the neighborhood an opportunity to trust in God as a solution to their problems.

Artists came from far and near to perform and minister through their music including Righteouz Knight (NJ), K-Drama (OH), Young Joshua (PA), Cellus (GA), Bridge B (CO), Ali Rozet (WA) and the 412 Brother (TX) just to name a few. Christian Femcees, Heesun Lee and new comer Angie Rose showed they could go just as hard for God on the mic as the fellows. The Dynamic Rockers danced and shared their testimony how God through dancing saved their lives.

Most stood out in the 88 plus degree heat from 12 noon to 8pm and were blessed. Rap Fest also offered those that didn’t have a relationship with God and opportunity to begin one if they were moved to. With all the negativity in today’s music and written about today’s youth it was refreshing to see and free event of this magnitude, where many young people had a good time in the Lord.

Sponsors for the event included The Sanctuary Fellowship, New Birth New York, God Belongs In My City, Sphere of Hip-Hop, Grateful Apparel, Nyack College, Asoranso Con Flow, Jam The Hype, C1 Radio (who broadcasted the entire event live) and Holy Culture.
