Daniel Pajuelo: The Spanish priest who preaches to rap music

There are many ways to preach, and rap music is one of them. The Spanish priest and professor, Daniel Pajuelo, incorporated his youthful passion for this music into his new mission. DANIEL PAJUELO "It was my fate in Barcelona; when I was stationed there, I met a group from the Evangelical Church named Praxiz that made rap music. They used it to rescue kids who were in the street, abandoned, and I found it a very powerful ministry.â? Now, Daniel has released the video, 'Vamos más allá' ('We go beyond'), with his group of Catholic rappers called 'Davidhs'. He wants it to help Christians to not be ashamed to share their faith in public. And indeed, he leads this example by discussing faith to those who attend his concerts. However, before taking the stage, he makes sure that he isn't alone.  DANIEL PAJUELO "I only had two conditions: that day, that weekend would not have any of the pastoral duties that my first mission had; and if possible, the second condition is to always go with someone, one of my brother rappers." Between concerts, he takes advantage of the breaks during school to listen to the rap with his students. He says he wants to change freestyle rap to be more beautiful. It's about getting people to share beautiful words.  IPC CTV -SV -BN -IPC
