Kat Krick is doing something revolutionary in the world of Christian music. She is combining dance beats and Christian lyrics to jumpstart a whole new music genre: Christian EDM (Electronic Dance Music). Her new single, Perfect Love, speaks about how Gods love trumps any trial of life.
Perfect Love made its debut on mainstream national radio on November 14 and has since aired on WPTY, WXJZ, WCPT and WMFQ/MC. All are Top 40/Dance stations and the song has received great responses.
Krick says a big part of what inspired her to make her music was MOSAIC, an energetic progressive church in LA made up of mostly twenty-somethings. When you walk into the church, you might mistake it for a concert venue, with a DJ playing EDM before the service starts and the young church-goers dancing along.
Krick says, Dancing is indeed a form of worship, so why is there not music to facilitate that kind of worship? I asked myself that question, and shortly after, found my calling. It felt like pieces of a puzzle falling together. I always loved singing, dancing and performing but I never had a clear direction until now.
Krick says she and others are tired of getting really into a song, singing along and dancing, only to then realize what the lyrics are truly saying.
Theres so much pop and dance music out there that send negative messages. I’m making music that enhances the experience of a listener who loves God, one that is both catchy and positive. I hope ‘Perfect Love’ will be the first of many dance songs to give hope, celebrate love, and help express praise.
Kat Krick just may be paving the way for artists in the genre of the coming age; music that faith-filled Millennials have been waiting for.
“Perfect Love” will be available on iTunes soon. In the meantime, check out Krick’s song, remixed by Mike Rizzo, here: Kat Krick – Perfect Love (Mike Rizzo Funk Generation Club Mix)

Driven by a desire to bring inner peace and tranquility to her readers, author Linda Garrett Hicks pens her new collection of poetry and prose Through the Storms: A Collection of Poems and Vignettes (published by WestBow Press) for readers from all walks of life.
Hicks began writing Through the Storms more than 50 years ago. Each poem has an accompanying footnote denoting the year it was written, and the events that inspired the particular poems are also noted. Her poems and essays communicate her thoughts on everyday highs and lows and the unpredictability of life.
The book is divided into five different categories: faith and inspiration; love and friendship; childhood home and mother; nature and creation; and vignettes. Hicks intends for readers to skip around so they may find the passage that speaks to them at any point in their lives.
I hope Through the Storms serves to remind that even though storms rage, hearts break and dreams die, the flowers will continue to bloom, Hicks writes. The breezes will keep blowing, babies will still smile and God will always love.
Through the Storms

Teams have been announced for the 2014 Beach Ball Classic, CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational, Carolinas Womens College Challenge and South Carolina Showcase. According to Executive Director, John Rhodes, this years lineup promises a glimpse of some of the nations top talent in rising juniors and returning seniors who are destined to grace the hardwood of the top colleges and professional ball clubs. We are the nations premier holiday basketball tournament for a reason, said Executive Director, John Rhodes.
Past tournaments have featured now famous players including Kobe Bryant, Jason Kidd, Ramon Sessions, Raymond Felton, and Ivory Latta just to name a few.
Since 1981, over one million fans have witnessed the Beach Ball Classic–a holiday tradition for local residents as well as the nations top high school players and their families.
The excitement and the attendance of these tournaments has continued to grow, said Rhodes. The addition of the CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational and the Carolinas Challenge has made a positive impact on sports in general and on our local economy.
The success of all three of these tournaments can be largely attributed to the support of the local community, tournament sponsors, and the volunteers who serve as Ambassadors to the visiting teams and their families, he continued. The loyalty of this community is definitely key to our continued success.
Aside from being the most successful high school sporting event on the Grand Strand and Horry County, and one of the most acclaimed high school tournaments in the nation, the Beach Ball Classic is widely recognized locally for its academic contribution. Since 1984, the Beach Ball Classic Scholarship Fund has awarded over $ 500,000 in college scholarships to more than 300 deserving Horry County High School students. Without the support of the community this would not have been possible, said Rhodes. This is something we can definitely all be proud of, he concluded.
