Hip Hop Gets Holy at Plymouth
March 18, 2014
This coming Sunday at 10:30 am, Plymouth Congregational Church in South Minneapolis will present a unique worship service – one built around the musical and spoken word art form of hip hop. Plymouth’s Senior Minister James Gertmenian hopes bringing together a rapper, a band and a youth choir will strengthen the spirituality of those who attend, even while he recognizes that some parishioners may not immediately see the connection between hip hop and heaven.
Gertmenian stopped by KFAI to talk with reporter Abeni Hill. They got Tony Williams, on the phone as well. Williams is a rapper who grew up in the Plymouth congregation.
As part of their conversation, Williams outlined how his performance will be informed by his faith and his chosen art form and career.
