(Photo:www.hungerawards.com) Christian rappers used their talents to collect thousands of cans of food Texas’ hungry Saturday night during a local event spotlighting up and coming Inspirational hip hop artists.

The Holy Hip Hop for Hunger Concert & Awards Show, held at South Houston’s Legacy Church, collected between 2,000 and 3,000 cans for the Houston Food Bank, while giving out awards to local male and female rap artists, spoken word poets, producers and DJs who praise the name of Jesus.

The cans came from the nearly 600 hip hop fans who were encouraged to bring five canned goods in exchange for free entrance to the event.

“I love to see more opportunities for the genre and the people making this kind of music to be honored because I think it’s a great justice that they’re doing for the kids, [for] the time and money I see them spending on recording and doing music and doing free events. Just trying to bring more awareness to what we’re doing,” said Hunger Awards organizer Vaughaligan Walwyn.
