It (the music) is good. It doesn't have as much cursing.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
The Mixtape Ministry Mixshow with BliSs, an online podcast has its eyes set on worldwide syndication while winning the hearts of parents and flooding positivity into the ears of the youth has acheived the feat of over 130,000 downloads in less than five months.
BliSs, creator of the Mixtape Ministry Mixshow, is best known for his community activism and outreaches over the last 12 years. BliSs, which is an acronym for Believer in the Love that's In the Savior of Sins, has led a march against crime, given out thousands of free CDS, held free concert tours to reach out to at-risk youth.
BliSs has been interviewed more than a handful of time in local newspapers and news networks. BliSs, whose real name is Timothy Jones, is a 33-year-old husband and pet lover. He aims to steer kids in the right direction and away from the negativity that so many times accompanies the negative music that is so prevalent and available to them. BliSs believes he can fight this fight with music. He believes that the more the music is exposed to the youth the more crime rates will decrease.
"I believe people underestimate the power of music. Many times at concerts and other events, its the music that sparks the fights and gun violence. The messages being embedded into the minds of these kids are repetitive glorification of money, drugs, sex and death" says BliSs. "Some artists try to dress it up and say they are only rapping about what they have seen or experienced in the past, yet its obvious in the messages that they do not clarify this explanation in the music and promote the songs as current lifestyles. 130,000 downloads is a great feat and we aim to multiple this number many times over as there are many more that 130,000 kids who need to hear."
BliSs writes, produces and records all of the Mixtape Ministry Mixshow podcasts which are released weekly on Fridays. BliSs delivers a diverse blend of music that represent the diverse youth he aims to reach. He encourages parents to have their kids try a few shows while listening in themselves. He says the song lyrics are positive and promote respect for life and other people.
"I want to change the hearts of Americas youth" says BliSs. "I know I can't do it alone and hopefully people will not get offended if I take this opportunity to ask for their assistance in helping me get this positive music into the ears of more youth. I want the Mixtape Ministry Mixshow to be on FM radio stations across the country for the kids who do not own ipods. I want it advertised on TV and talk shows. I want iTunes to Feature the podcast as a staff favorite. We want people to know that there is a market for this music. It simply needs more exposure. 130,000 from just the efforts of a guy working his heart out is a reflection that this music is wanted. Just imagine what will happen when a few big names get behind this thing. Parents must realize, that kids are going to listen to the music and beats they like. Let's replace the words. Kids are dying everyday. I thank you in advance".
