SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] My name is Christian Gray. I'm an R&B, Soul, Jazz, Pop, Hip Hop, Gospel, did I already say Jazz? Artist from Columbus, Ohio. I've an album out called School of Roses. [MUSIC] I think in the R&B genre we can understand relationships well, but what we learn from them I think is limited by our understanding so in this album I wanted to insert something that was greater than our emotions and what we perceive to be [MUSIC] A proper logic and love. So I'm introducing a very, a very subconscious but, but still overt approach to christianity through the album, [MUSIC] It was only just a matter of time until he makes it to the big stage, drum bass, orchestra leading a [MUSIC] I think music does a great job of relating with people's emotions.
