R&B and hip-hop man Liquid ministers at Nashville prison

THE LATINO-tinged R&B and hip-hop artist Liquid, whose album 'Tales From The Badlands' is released in the UK by EMI CMG in August, performed for over 100 inmates at Nashville's CCA Metro Prison on 16th June. As part of the Men Of Valor programme, Liquid performed a seven-song set and shared his personal testimony of growing up in North Philadelphia, an area known predominantly for an abundance of drugs, violence and poverty; an area simply called The Badlands. He also spent time with the inmates in a Q&A session after the performance. "Friday's show humbled me," said Liquid of the experience. "I felt like God really was using me and has given me a heart for those guys. It was so awesome to see the fire in them-they were on fire for the Lord! It made me realise that I need that same fire for the Lord and should strive for it everyday." Men Of Valor is a ministry outreach committed to winning men in prison to Jesus Christ and discipling them. CR
