SiriusXM has expanded its spiritually-inspired programming to include the new Christian hip-hop channel Holy Culture Radio. The subscription audio platform has also added popular Christian comedian KevOnStage to its Kirk Franklin Praise gospel channel.
KevOnStage, otherwise known as Kevin Fredericks, debuted on Kirk Franklin’s gospel channel with his self-titled show on Monday, April 18.
KevOnStage, married with children, is known mostly for his stand-up content and viral comedic takes. He has amassed more than five million followers across his social networks.
New episodes of his variety show, “where comedy and satire meet commentary and feel good music,” will air on Mondays and repeat Saturdays and Sundays, according to a press release.
Christian hip-hop finds a home on the SiriusXM service with the launch of Holy Culture Radio. The new channel debuted April 21, and promises more than a dozen shows targeting fans of Christian hip-hop and rhythm and praise music.
In addition, the channel’s “programming will focus on themes of Faith, Art, Vocation, and Education.” That means listeners can expect to hear more than music, but also find “connection to popular culture, connection to their faith, and success in their careers.”
Fans of Wade “DJ Wade-O” Harris will also be excited to find the popular DJ back on the scene with his eponymous show in the Holy Culture lineup. Known for interesting interviews with notable Christian figures, DJ Wade-O shared the exciting news with his online followers back on March 18.
