Season 3, Episode 3
The Praisecast Team: Chris Carpenter, Bekah Evans, and Hannah Goodwyn
Dove Award-nominated hip-hop artist Steven Malcolm joins us to talk about his surprise collaboration with Natalie Grant (on their new song, “Even Louder”) and why it is important to merge musical genres, especially in Christian music.
The Praisecast Team shares a few cheesy songs that they secretly love. Bekah takes us on a tour of some of the strangest musical duets of all time. And, they discuss upcoming summer movies, including one that Chris actually appears in. (By the way, Downton Abbey does not qualify as a summer movie.)
