Last Saturday afternoon, 1Kingdom Radio took over the Lower Level auditorium of the African-American Museum in Fair Park, Dallas to present an Open Mic. Initially, it seemed as if the show would never start, but low and behold, the talent started to pile in one by one, and before you knew it, the lights dimmed on the audience, while two spotlights found their place on stage. AX2 and Dejah, a dynamic brother and sister, Christian Hip-Hop group, assumed their spaces in the spotlight and started hosting the show. It is a wonder, how these young people became so skilled at commanding audiences, so effortlessly, at such a young age. The are 13 and 18 years old respectively.

For the past 4 months, 1 Kingdom Radio has hosted an Open Mic in Dallas, the 4th Saturday of the month to showcase up and coming gospel talent here in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Steve Donahoo, the Public Relations Manager and Talent Scout for 1 Kingdom Radio says there is an abundance of talent here in our area. “I have been working with 1Kingdom Radio for over 2 years now. I realized years ago, their mission is the same as my own, which is to Introduce Christ to young people, by building a bridge for youth, from Christian Music to New Music. The kids in church today, are not into the old type of music.”

Up until last Saturday, previous Open Mics were open to people of all ages, but this one focused on the youth. AX2 and Dejah opened up with a rap song of their own, and broke into fancy dance steps while they were doing it. Their performance was high energy and signaled to everyone in the audience that the show had just begun. They kept the audience engaged with activities. One young lady was invited on stage to sing, while a few others were invited on a little later to show their dancing skills..

The talent showcase was packed with a variety of up and coming young talent – Christian Rappers, a Country Christian guitarist, vocalists and a mime dancer. In fact, one of the Christian Rappers, who goes by the name of Big Ricky Bo Sticky was invited to minister at Canton Jones’ church in Atlanta this past month.

Game Changers, which is a part of 1Kingdom Radio has been conducting concert tours in different areas of the country to help give new artists exposure outside of the areas they live in. So far, they have been to Vegas, Atlanta, Oklahoma City and will be traveling to Los Angeles very soon. Game Changers was created to mentor the Youth through music. Mr. Donahoo says, “We show girls how to love themselves and not to take a man’s point of view of who they are. With the boys and young men, we Teach them what it takes to be a man, and the responsibilities that go along with it. We are providing them with another male figure, outside of the home that they can look up to and talk to. Of course, we also teach them things like the importance of staying in school, pulling their pants up and all of the things that are facing our youth in urban society today.”

1Kingdom Radio is located at www.1kingdomradio.com. You may visit their site to tune into one of their shows. They broadcast on Mondays, Wednesdays from 5-7 pm and Thursday from 7-9 pm. You may also follow them on Facebook to keep abreast with upcoming events and other news concerning the station.
