My Local Artist Love this month is Victoria Armstead. Victoria is the proud founder of I’m Somebody’s Good Thing and spends her time working, ministering, seeking God about the ISGT movement using tools like social media and apparel to spread this message.
I finally caught up with this amazing young woman of God about ISGT, how it got started and the song inspired by Proverbs 18:22, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”
A few months ago I was introduced to Elohin (pronounced El-o-in), an independent hip hop artist from Detroit. I had to find out more about this man of God, because his sound was so unique to me.
Elohin like many guys in urban America found his identity in, money, girls, violence, and rap music until his lifestyle and music content were challenged and transformed. He now raps to bring awareness to social issues, as a means of expression, and to inspire and encourage his listeners to grow in their faith. We talked about his music, the pronunciation of his name and his plans for a complete CD coming out next year. (via: notyouraveragerapper.com)
This month’s Local Artist Love salutes Marc Jay. Groomed to sing at very early age… this young man of God has launched a solo career with a new EP called, “I am God.” He’s a combination of old school, Millennial and country… yes, country!
