How does God rescue and use a prostitute, lesbian, braggadocious Portland, Oregon-bred secular rapper for His purposes? Ask redeemed, restored and well-respected Gospel rap artist, Octavia Harris. Street life and a 10-year homosexual lifestyle had stolen Octavia's identity. In 2005, she surrendered all to Jesus Christ whereupon He revealed her true identity in Him. He then turned her pain into passion. With several successful albums released, Octavia is producing catchy beats wrapped in God's truth, infused with clever lyrics and her life experiences to help others overcome this world's dark influences. You'll hear her powerful testimony and tracks from her latest album Be Myself (free download). We'll also be joined by Christian rap artist and returning guest, Crucial. We'll discuss his track "Homosexuals" which exposes the deceptions of this societal (and church)-embraced lifestyle—and how God wants the Body of Christ and the Church to address.

Money: Why is there never enough?
The conversation about money very often isn't about money. That's talking about the symptom. The cause of many money issues is emotional which goes back to belief systems and family patterns. Since money is a tangible form of love, having enough or not is about self-regard, self-worth, and self-value.
On Saturday, August 2 at 3:00pm Being Human Now will ask one important question: Why am I so broke all the time?
Spiritual Life Coach Ken Kizer and Psychiatric Social Worker Octavia Carlos will take you through the important questions in order to help you find the powerful answers.
Urgency: "Did you take that Job, knowing it would burn you out, just because you needed the money?" How much of your soul will you sell for money?
Courage: Are you a leader, but you're afraid something bad will happen if you act?
Self-Image: Do you think you can look too successful?
Boundaries: Do you fear having too much money makes you a target of your needy family and friends?
Family: What is your first memory about money?

Actor Keith Robinson Cast In James Brown Biopic, ‘Get On Up’
Things really seem to be coming together for the long-awaited James Brown biopic, Get On Up. Just last week we told you that singer-turned-actress Jill Scott has been cast to play The Godfather Of Soul’s wife. We’ve just learned that Dreamgirls actor Keith Robinson has also been added to the all-star cast.
According to Shadow and Act, the 38-year-old actor will be playing the role of Baby Roy an original member of James Brown’s band. Actor Keith Robinson Cast In James Brown Biopic, ‘Get On Up’ Keith will be in the company of some of Hollywood’s most talented actors and actresses. If you recall, 42 actor Chadwick Boseman has been cast to play the role of Brown. The Help actresses Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis have also been cast to play the late singer’s aunt and mother, respectively.
Keith has already taken to Twitter to thank everyone for their support and express his excitement regarding his new role.
Keith is best known for his critically acclaimed role as “C.C. White” in the Academy Award winning feature film, Dreamgirls. In which he was directed by Bill Condon, and starred alongside Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy and Anika Noni Rose. In the musical, Robinson’s big solo, “Patience,” which he also performed live at the Academy Awards, earned him an Oscar nomination.
On the acting side, Robinson followed Dreamgirls with This Christmas, co-starring Chris Brown, Idris Elba, Loretta Devine and Delroy Lindo. He then went on to star in Dear John opposite Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried. Roles in 35 and Ticking, starring alongside Kevin Hart, and Hopelessly in June soon followed. Next, Robinson began shooting Dysfunctional Friends.
Like many, he’s taken a behind-the-scenes approach to creating music. Robinson founded his own scoring company, Theme Song. Since its establishment, Theme Song has scored music for movies like Blade 3, Fat Albert, and 35 and Ticking, in which he also starred. Most recently, the budding company scored Divorce Invitation (2012) also starring Robinson alongside Jonathan Bennett, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Nadia Bjorlin.
Keith’s upcoming releases include CRU, an emotionally intense film in which he stars alongside Harry Lennix, Richard T. Jones, and Alison Eastwood. Four Seasons, a romantic comedy starring with Robin Givens and Christian Keyes, and most recently, Universal’s James Brown biopic Get On Up, with Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Dan Aykroyd. In conjunction with the release of Get On Up, Keith will also be releasing his new album, Love Episodic, both due in 2014.
