Woman Shares her Testimony with J. Cole

The woman in the video below had a nonchalant encounter with Grammy-nominated rapper J. Cole while he was filming his documentary for his album 4 Your Eyes Only.  What she shared with him was beyond inspiring.

I want to lift up lecrae because he is using his talent and platform to be a light to an industry that desperately needs it.
