Soulblock, who’s working on a new Christian hiphop album, lifted the audience with a solo rap before pulling his good friend Tony Kurtis and the First Anointed Mime Ministry of Israel Baptist Church on stage with him. Chekera, who was once featured on American Idol and won Radio One Baltimore’s #DoItForMom singing contest, also blew away those watching with her sweet song.

Take a look at their performances below and keep scrolling for photos from the night’s event.
