While Kevon Carter is most known for his funny videos on social media, music was his first love. Having released his first album a decade ago and composed songs for Bishop Paul S. Morton, Jonathan McReynolds and more over the years, Carter has stepped back into the artist room to release another album titled Finally (I Felt That Music).

The 16-track gospel album has already hit no. 3 on iTunes and Amazon Christian music charts! 

His press release states: The project features tender ballads such as “Through the Pain,”  “You Survived” and “Open Heaven.” There are fast tracks such as “Be Exalted” and the retro groove, “Give Him Praise.” However,  “Check Their Fruit” which is based on Galatians 5:22-23 is getting attention. “It’s a fun song with a message, a real message,” he says. He adds that “Always A Reason” is a simple ballad that explains that there’s always a reason to praise the Lord. “Again” is another fine ballad. “It’s a self-reflective song about the guilt and shame that comes with making poor decisions,” he says. There are also three brief comedic interludes sprinkled throughout the set. 

When God has a calling on your life, it’s hard to ignore it. Believe it or not, Carter had no intentions of being a comedian but he stumbled upon a way to combine the talent with his passion for music. 

“I decided to do a funny song about vocal runs to post on Facebook. I knew nothing about making videos online. When I posted the video, it went viral. I started getting so many friend requests that my personal page reached the max to accept friends,” he says. “After going viral,  I decided to do another video weeks later and that video also produced thousands of views. People would comment about how much they enjoyed the skits, and they encouraged me to do more and so I did.  As I kept going, I slowly began to see that the comedy and humor was also a ministry.”

Take a listen to Kevon Carter’s Finally album below. Then, keep scrolling to take a look at some of his funny videos.

Spoken Word Artist, Taijun Waters Takes on Porn Industry & Purity Culture In New Cinematic Piece “Vultures”

Published

on

By

Multi-talented American Spoken Word Artist and Midwest Prevention Advocate Taijun Waters recently released his new poetry video titled “Vultures” and it’s sure to make a powerful impact. Vultures promises to exceptionally impact lives through combining witty poetry and gripping cinematography.

In his latest piece, Taijun un-layers the dark truths of growing up in a pornographic society that has an influence on boys, men, women, and the church. A sort of “Get Out” for lust and satisfaction. It will challenge the thoughts of the comfortable of dysfunctional society we live in, sensitize our hearts towards the root causes of the #MeToo epidemic, and re-introduce the Gospel to areas often unspoken in manhood and womanhood.

Taijun Waters spoke on his inspirations as a creative (director, poet, and artist), “I’m passionate about impacting the world around me where it matters… My passion has always been to use poetry, music, and film to let the loner know that they are not alone; comfort the hurting heart; challenge the thoughts of the comfortable, and re-introduce God as the friend who sticks closer than a brother in all areas of life.”

Vocationally Waters is currently a Prevention Advocate for sex trafficking, and is a listed speaker at an international conference this month. He trains and empowers youth, staff, and organizations in the Midwest to prevent sex trafficking and exploitation. From all that stated, we’re excited to see so much passion for sexual injustices from a man’s perspective – along with the creativity and wit that carries this project as a whole.
