Jai had Aloha and Stone revved up in her performance.

P Dub gave a testimonial about his journey toward being a gospel artist and gave snippets of his secular songs "when he was in his mess."

Then he talked about asking God which path should he travel with his music amd when he got saved and how the Lord sent him a wife.

Dub said that he was there to help someone else rebuild their lives.

Up next was band, Juanita Place.
