Rapper and poet Jackie Hill Perry to release new album on 11th May


RAPPER, writer, preacher and poet Jackie Hill Perry will release her second album 'Crescendo' through Humble Beast/Fair Trade Services on 11th May. Said the rapper, "A crescendo should be lowered at some point to grow. It needs to include a place of lament. The truth of the Christian walk is weakness: it's riddled with suffering. I wanted an album that would carry the idea that how, when you grow in faith in Christ, your life gets louder. I wanted to make that connection. Our lives should be a constant crescendo. We should be growing in love for God and our neighbour. This is really a story about what it's like to grow." CR
