Montell Jordan: Dove Awards 2012 quotes

Quick hits from the 2012 Dove Awards.
For­mer main­stream rap­per Mon­tell Jor­dan was a pre­sen­ter at the 2012 Dove Awards in Atlanta on Thurs­day, April 19. While back­stage at the GMA awards Jor­dan, who is known for the pop­u­lar “This is How We Do It,” chat­ted about becom­ing involved in the Chris­tian music world. 

I get asked that a lot,” Jor­dan said. “But I quit the music busi­ness and I became a min­is­ter.”

Vic­to­ry World Church is a mul­ti­cul­tur­al church in Nor­cross, Ga., a sub­urb of Atlanta, that Jor­dan helped start. Last year, Jor­dan record­ed “Shake Heav­en” with with Beck­ah Shae.

I bring dif­fer­ent cul­tures togeth­er. Dif­fer­ent gen­res. We are open­ing the world up to all styles of music,” Jor­dan said. “There’s not a white Jesus, a black Jesus, an Asian Jesus. We all come togeth­er, and when we do we become closer to what heav­en real­ly looks like.”
