UNDER_GROUND: Aaron P'Reach
Why is God so important to rapper Aaron P'Reach?
Christian rap artist Aaron P'Reach was interviewed recently by Jon from Youth for Christ's UNDER_GROUND.
Aaron started writing and creating rap lyrics while he was at secondary school. He has mild autism and experienced bullying, so rap provided an outlet and helped his confidence. However, he discovered through his passion for rhyme and wordplay that he had a real talent for creating and performing.
Growing up in a Christian household led to him embracing Jesus for himself when he was 18 years old. This affected his music, as his lyrics from this point on reflected his love for God and the impact being a Christian has had on his life. He loves sharing his faith through his lyrics and hopes to show young people the hope that they can find in Christ.
Watch the interview to hear all about his faith journey, then check out the track he recorded especially for Youth for Christ. Once you've watched the videos, answer the following questions:
- How did Aaron become a Christian?
- According to Jon, being a Christian is about a relationship with Jesus Christ, not a set of rules. What does this mean? Do you agree with him?
