The Review of 'The Return' The Alternative family.

Last night was absolutely amazing.  The performance artist raised the praise at Rock da Spot, cafe of Philadelphia Church presented by Alternative.  There were 19 performers: Cedrick, Articulite, Justin aka Jay-Dawg, Eddie Sterling and Strongheart, Legacy, Street Prophet, Brit Nicole, Trinity Brothers: Conclave, Download, Trinity, Aye ‘Alex’ Sanford, Kaylen, Ms. Odeta, D.H. and the Next Level Band, Dance Troop-Taking Notes, Cell Block, Isaiah aka 7Tre, Lamar Simms and Conclave doing solo. Markasa, the founder of the Alternative, put together this event for the purpose of drawing in souls, going outside the walls of the church to reach the lost.  Markasa’s next event will allow for open mic.  A few of my first time favorites are Aye ‘Alex’ Sanford, The tattooed Saint Tay Spears, Articulite of Hot Sauce Poetry at 1539 S. Pulaski Rd Chicago Illinois talked about protecting your heart by not giving away your “Soy Sauce”, a euphemism for not fornicating ; Cell Blok relates poetry to the streets and how God can reach you no matter where you are at; Street Prophet speaks up for the silent voices and the handsome Legacy of Legacy Musik,  Shepherd Express Best of 2013 Winner.  Legacy stepped out in boldness and went into worship.  Ladies, that is very hot.  A man who prays makes your heart flutter.  All these men and women are prayer warriors.  They love Jesus with all that got and what they got is the good news of Jesus Christ.   See one of Legacy’s You Tube video called “My Side”.         

Inspirational Hip Hop artist, Isaiah Jay, performing live at The Alternative!

Saturday the north side of Chicago is popping with an array of performers at the Philadelphia church with the "The Return", an alternative evangelism event. The event is a way to draw souls to Christ through the arts. The show begins at 7 p.m. ending at 10 p.m., located at 5447 North Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois, admission is $5.00 at the door.The show is based on the biblical scripture Zechariah 1:3, "Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord of hosts: "Return to Me," says the Lord of hosts, "and I will return to you," says the Lord of hosts." The above scripture is about a dream of Zechariah's. In the dream God is telling Zechariah to return unto Him in faith. God explains that prophets told those before Zechariah about returning to their faith, but the warning was not heeded and they died in their sin.This show is meant to be a fun evangelism tool that speaks to the truths of faith, salvation and living lives in love through Jesus. The featured performers are D Aych & Next Level Band, Takenotez, Tiffany Bufford, Lamar Simms and Conclave Download. The show is presented by the Alternative. Maria Chambers is event coordinator contact.414-699-5195.An additional performer not featured is Isaiah Jay aka 7Tre.
