After releasing his popular “Five-Two Television” last fall, KJ-52 is seeking out “Modern Day Heroes.” He is joined by Group 1 Crew for the upcoming co-headlining tour the “Modern Day Heroes,” which will kick off next month, February 2010. This tour will be filled with vertical rhymes, high energy dance moves, and possibly even a few surprises. As with all things that KJ-52 is involved with, this will not be the average concert, but include elements to reach out to the local youth and “heroes.”

The “Modern Day Heroes” tour involves two facets making this an unique experience for those attending. First, those fans that purchase their tickets online will have entry into a pre-show Firestarter Bible Study. Secondly, fans can nominate a local “Modern Day Hero” in each market online powered by HearItFirst.com. The chosen “Hero” will have free access to the show and be honored by KJ-52 and Group 1 Crew.

Local “Hero”: This person needs to exemplify dedication to ministry, his or her community, and others around the area. The selected hero will be honored in their city when the “Modern Day Hero” tour hits their town. Nominations for the heroes can be made online by clicking “Nominate Your Hero.”

Firestarter Bible Study: KJ-52 and Group 1 Crew will implement and lead a Firestarter Bible Study walking through the book of Luke for local youth groups in each tour market. Interacting on a spiritual level and studying scripture prior to the concert is for those that purchase tickets prior to the show online. Purchase tickets at www.moderndayheroestour.com & http://www.moderndayheroestour.com. By purchasing tickets online, your name will be on the Will Call list granting entry to the study.

Tour dates are being revealed daily at www.moderndayheroestour.com. The tour is sponsored by Compassion International and Hearitfirst.com.

About KJ-52: Releasing his debut project in 2000, KJ-52 continued to do his “thing” for a total of seven projects released. Three of his four titles have scanned over 100,000 units—the only Christian hip-hop artist in history to do so. KJ-52 has become one of the most trusted names in music as a songwriter, producer, minister, and comic poet, in spite of many seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Let's not forget: He is an unabashed follower of Christ, he is white, and he is a rapper. In 2009, KJ-52 was once again nominated for the fourth consecutive year as CCM Magazine’s Favorite Hip Hop Artist in the Reader’s Choice poll. He also was honored with his fifth Dove Award.
