I totally cringe when I look at shows such as ‘The Voice’, ‘World of Dance’ and ‘America’s Got Talent.’ No, No – it’s not because I dislike shows like that because, in actuality, I’m a huge fan of them. But what gets me is when you have a person that’s so FULL of talent – bomb on a song or don’t bring their very best to the stage.
If you haven’t heard of Hosanna Jones a.k.a hosanna1light then I have to ask, “Where Have you Been? This lyrical, heartfelt christian rapper is not like any other, Yesssss…I know you may be thinking “What Makes Him So Different?” Well, I’ll just let his music tantalize your ears later in the post plus I’ve been following Hosanna for about a year now and I can tell you, he really does practice what he “rhymes” about. He’s an encourager and motivator whom takes pride in his craft as well as being a family man to his son and wife.
Growing up, Hosanna knew of Christ; but when you have a parent whom let you do what you want to do, having a relationship with God suddenly gets pushed to the back burner. Hosanna didn’t know much about God and therefore found himself getting further and further away from his voice.
I told God, “I know who Jesus is, I understand the word a little bit but it doesn’t make sense to me. Hosanna
One day, while hanging out with some friends all of whom were doing spiritual practices but not necessarily the Christ way, Hosanna whom really never experienced what love truly was – felt like their way was right and began to question God concerning his involvement with them and if the way they were going was the way God wanted him to go. Hosanna asked God, if the practice was wrong to let him know and to do whatever it is he had to do to him to get him out of it, just don’t kill him.
I wanted to change for the better; I knew that I wanted to change. Hosanna
While Hosanna has had many downs as well as set backs towards his journey in Christ, the one thing that remained constant, was his music.
The music Hosanna raps about are lyrics of the heart that springs up from his soul, every verse is wrapped in love and spoken with conviction about his own life and of a father whom saved him from the very hands of the enemy, now he spreads that love and light to others so that they may also come to know God in a special way.
Once Hosanna grabbed onto changing “God’s Way” that’s when his music no longer became just a beat to make people bob their heads but a beat followed by life changing lyrics of life and struggle, finding God, falling in love with life and mending broken relationships, powerful lyrics that will hopefully change a life for the better, just as God did for his.
