Jesse Jackson Brings Holy Hip-Hop to Keep the Vote Alive! March & Rally

July 27, 2005
Award-winning Holy Hip-Hop Artist Nova 4 Jehovah has been added to the entertainment line-up planned for Reverend Jesse Jacksons Keep the Vote Alive! march and rally to be held on August 6 in Atlanta, GA. In an effort to pass the torch to the youth and young adults The Rainbow PUSH Coalition has brought Nova 4 Jehovah on board to appear with musical legends Stevie Wonder and Roberta Flack and gospel greats such as Dr. Bobby Jones to represent the Hip-Hop Generation. The day-long Keep the Vote Alive! march and rally will commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and will mark the beginning of Reverend Jesse Jacksons 2-year campaign to raise awareness and mobilize the nation around the need for legislation to extend key civil rights provisions in the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that are set to expire in 2007. In addition to the invited artists, local, state and national political, civil rights, human rights and labor leaders (including Ambassador Andrew Young, Congressman John Lewis, and Dr. Joseph Lowery along many others) will address the crowd that will come out to support the parade and rally. The days events are expected to attract several thousand people from metro Atlanta and across the nation. The Keep the Vote Alive! march will begin at the Richard B. Russell Federal Building, 75 Spring Street, in downtown Atlanta. The march will begin at 10:00 a.m. and proceed down Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive to Herndon Stadium on the historic Morris Brown College campus where the all-day rally will kick-off at 11:00 a.m.

It is truly an honor and a blessing, Nova 4 Jehovah said, to be included among the great men and women who have blazed trails and changed history that will be a part of the Keep the Vote Alive! march and rally. My being chosen to represent the hip-hop generation is a testament to the faithfulness of the God we serve. Nova 4 Jehovah, a 21-year old Atlanta native, was the 2004 Atlanta Gospel Choice Award Winner for Best Holy Hip-Hop Artist. Nova was also selected as 2005 Best New Holy Hip-Hop Artist at the Urban Gospel Music Industry Awards held on June 29 in Los Angeles, CA in conjunction with the Edwin Hawkins/Walter Hawkins Music & Arts Love Fellowship Conference. Novas music ministry, which focuses on the redemption of the youth, is gaining national and international recognition. Black Entertainment Network (B.E.T.) recently featured Nova on the popular Bobby Jones Gospel Show. He is a member of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, GA, where Bishop Eddie L. Long is Senior Pastor. Nova, with his dynamic stage presence and powerful message, is certain to represent the hip-hop generation in excellence at the Rainbow PUSH Keep the Vote Alive! rally while keeping it Crunk for Christ!
