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.
