"A white dude from the suburbs and inner city of Florida doing Christian rap and driving a minivan?" KJ says. "None of that makes sense. No one says, 'That's the formula, right there!' But at the end of the day, it just proves that God did it."

The absurdity of his situation hasn't stopped him from becoming one of the hottest rappers on the Christian hiphop scene, as evidenced by his 2004 Dove Award for Rap/Hiphop Album of the Year (for "It's Pronounced Five-Two") and his recent 2005 Dove Award nominations for Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year (for "Back in the Day") and Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year (for "Soul Purpose"). It just proves that God can do great things with small things that are surrendered to His purpose.

KJ was fifteen and at the end of his rope when he finally found something to belong to. The catalyst was a couple of questions from a relative and a Bible that he says might as well have been written in Russian.

"I have a cousin who had to gone to a private Christian school," KJ recalls. "He just hit me with a few questions that made me think. I borrowed his Bible and started reading Revelation. It was the King James Version and I didn't understand the first thing I was reading. But there was something about it that made me cry. There was a happy ending. Every night I would listen to radio preachers and then I would listen to a hip-hop-show. The truth is I just said, 'God, if you are real just prove it and I will follow you.' And He did. Little by little, He did. I got down on my knees one night when I heard a radio preacher say that I could be saved where ever I was. And the next morning when I woke up I wasn't the same. I was different. And from that point on my life has never been the same."Enter..... A Boy Named Jonah.
