ENTERPRISE, Ala. — Upcoming local Christian rap artist, Daniel Evans, held a performance on Aug. 17 at Dove Christian Supply Bookstore in Enterprise, Ala. and signed CDs for customers.

Evans, from Chancellor, Ala., is described as a “promising hip-hop artist whose singing roots originated from his local church, Daniel Evans has been singing his praises to God using old-school hip-hop beats combined with modern crunk for that contemporary vibe.”

Evans said he grew up in Fort Walton Beach but now has a home in Chancellor, Ala.

“I started writing songs at a young age, I accepted the Lord at a young, but always liked rap, so I deciding to start writing Christian rap, because I felt that God could use me to reach people through it,” said Evans. “I quit doing it for a while, because I got out of church for a while and got depressed and discouraged because I thought I was a failure to myself, God and others. At one point in time I did not thank go can still use me I was inspired to write this song called, also the title to my album, Nothing Going to Stop Me, and started back writing because my Dad said ‘you use to rap, and you use to tell people about The Lord,’ and that motivated me to start back writing, going back to church, rapping and telling people about the Lord as well as getting back in the studio and record.”

He said the thing that keeps him going is his mother and his family’s prayers.

“It’s the joy and the happiness I bring all my family friends when they listen to my music or see me perform,” said Evans. “And its the doors God keep opening for me to get my message out as I'm just His willing vessel, but it also brings me joy to rap and it's something I love to do.”
