The visionary behind the event, Romel Murphy said, “I have a passion to reach the youth, especially young men, and the best way to reach them and tell them about God is to involve them in something they can relate to. The church is sometimes perceived as uptight, judgmental, and contained within the four walls. Those misconceptions must be changed if we want to reach our youth today, and that’s where the idea was birthed!”
Special halftime musical guests included Alexi Spight, Cheneta Jones and Livre.
Keesha Rainey performed the National Anthems that many wished was recorded!
