Rapper visit inspires Clacton youths
7:30am Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
A STAR rapper dazzled crowds in Clacton as in a gig set up to inspire local youngsters.
Top religious rapper Jelz was booked to perform in the town by Christian charity Asher Ministries to spread a positive message to youngsters.
Jelz took to the stage at the Asher Ministries Station Road base on Friday night, supported by fellow Christian rapper Hiddenman.
And pastor Eamonn Black from the charity has hailed the event a major success.
He said: “Their message is a very positive one for the young people of our town.
“It was refreshing and effective to hear it conveyed in that format. It was a really special performance.
“With all the bad reports and incidents in Clacton it is important for us to be a part of creating a more positive atmosphere for our youngsters to take forward.”
Asher Ministries has already booked the young rapper to return for a second performance next year.
