Recently, members of the Christian Hip Hop community have been reminded of the
frailty of human life. One such reminder is the sudden and tragic death of two of Steve
and Nonna Towns three children in a St. Louis house fire on Saturday, February 10th.
Steve (better known as producer “Steve-T”) and Nonna also sustained substantial
injuries after escaping the burning house with their four-month old daughter. The
devastating news was covered by much of the local media. Steve
is best known for producing music for Flame, JSon, Fedel and others in the genre, and
Nonna is signed to Thisl’s Full Ride Music Label. The couple has remained rooted in
the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ during this time, selflessly using their pain for the
exaltation of God even in the midst of suffering.

There are few truly unique stories in rap music any more but the life of Houston artist-turned-Pastor-turned-artist, Vaughaligan (Va-ha-li-gan) Walwyn, would definitely be an exception. Yes, there are the almost requisite tales of the drug life, and attempts at redemption through music but Vaughaligan's road begins with an athletic scholarship to Houston's Rice University, having moved to the city at a young age from St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. Although he was always active in music through his church, it was his track skills that really enabled Vaughaligan to shine. Whilst at Rice University Vaughaligan became an All-American long jumper, breaking the US Virgin Islands long jump record with a leap of 26 feet and 1 inch. His Olympic dreams were derailed however by a career-ending knee injury and it was during his recovery that he took full refuge in music. Although he graduated with a Bachelors in History, Vaughaligan began pursuing a full time music career in earnest.
