With passionate words of inspiration and testimony, local Christian rapper G-Blest (real name Gary Ward) transcended the often negative stereotypes associated with rap. He performed in celebration of his new album, I Am Blest, while the Sean Killingsworth Band provided a rock-based foundation. Some people put their hands in air, while others formed a small mosh pit as G-Blest delivered songs with fire and passion. The large crowd was then provided with glow sticks, turning the church into a swaying rainbow. G-Blest performed solo and with other rappers, and mixed rock with his rapping. There was no profanity—all in a testament to his spiritual journey. By the end of the night, G-Blest bowed down in front of the crowd and gave thanks to God. He looked like a man who was truly blessed.
