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

Published

on

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.

ArtSoul Radio Introduces The “Praise Hands Podcast” w/ Robby Valderrama

Published

on

The Praise Hands Podcast is one of the newest podcasts being featured on the ArtSoul Radio platform. This podcast is about Creative and Cross-Cultural Christianity, and is hosted by Robby Valderrama. Robby is a nationally respected voice on the American intersection of church, race, music, and economics. With a track record of cultivating multicultural ministries that creatively engage their local communities, Robby’s unique background of music, church ministry, and finance has helped individuals, churches, and organizations across the nation navigate complex issues of culture with ease and confidence.

 

 

When he’s not speaking or consulting, he hosts the Praise Hands Podcast, leads the Praise Hands Collective worship group, serves at The Belonging Co, and treasures every moment with his wife Bria Jean and their two daughters.

 

The inspiration behind the Praise Hands Podcast is all about reconciliation and unity. After moving from the San Francisco Bay Area to Nashville, Tennessee, Robby realized that he moved from one of the least churched areas to one of the most churched areas in the country. But along with that positive change, he noticed that he also moved from one of the least racially segregated areas to one of the most racially segregated areas. Nashville is the home of a variety of industries including music, movies, education, a host of church denominations, and publishing. The racial divide surprised him and made him sick to his stomach. He was determined to do something about it. That is when the Praise Hands Podcast was created.

 

With a spirit of reconciliation, the Praise Hands Podcast counters the segregation through honest conversation about the American intersection of church, race, music, and economics. Additionally, he launched Praise Hands Collective, a multicultural worship expression that brings people together across languages, genres, and denominations. And most recently, he is exploring the creation of a platform to resource diverse worship leaders called DiverseWorship.com.

 

 

Tune in to www.artsoulradio.com every Monday at 12 noon CST and & 7pm CST to hear a new episode from this podcast. What exactly is “Creative, Cross-Cultural Christianity”? The episode below answers that question and explains why it’s needed. Tune in and be sure to sound off your thoughts in the comment section!

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.
