Photo of the Day: Hanging on a prayer

HolyHipHopPOTD

While waiting to perform, an artist takes a quiet moment backstage for prayer. The Christian hip hop community descended upon Atlanta for the annual Holy Hip Hop Award Show at Center Stage in Midtown Jan. 16. There were performers and fans from all over the country. Some of the music was more overtly religious than others, but all performers shared a common passion for spreading the gospel through hip hop. Many of the artists shared anecdotes of growing up in the projects and living a dangerous lifestyle until they decided to embrace Christianity.
