Hollistah, whose real name is James Curtis, is a Salina native who has spent the last several years building a music career by mixing the beat of street-smart urban rap with spiritually uplifting Christian rock. He has released one CD, "So Far," and is in the process of completing a new CD, "Got Cash."

Now he's hoping to get cash for a good cause. Curtis will be the featured performer at "From Saline to Helene: An Unplugged Benefit," a fundraiser for Honduras relief efforts.

"Young people aren't going to stop listening to hip-hop," said Samad Bilal founder of New Generations Christian Conference, which stopped by Paradise Cathedral in Roanoke on Saturday.

The all-day conference focuses on bringing the word of God to young people who are influenced by today's hip-hop culture.

Todd Smith, aka Te'Luvv, doesn't fit the rapper mold. The only gold he wears is a wedding ring. He doesn't curse, drink or claim to have emerged from thug life. "The bottom line for me is that it's ministry," he said. "I decrease myself so God can look bigger and better."

Te'Luvv (pronounced Tay-Love) is a 28-year-old Christian rapper who recently moved to Memphis, and just released his fourth CD, "The World is Not Enough." Each track is a poetic sermon delivered through a rap beat.
