His latest video’s titled “Prayer Loop Song” and “Why” both have gone viral and have received over 2 million views on youtube and facebook which has put him in high demand touring extensively throughout the U.S.A and internationally.

"I strive to inspire & motivate while honoring the generations who've come before me through art, culture and design. My goal is to light up the darkness by igniting the fire for positive change in all of us through music and visual medicine. May we unite as human beings in peace, love, respect and honor"! -- Christian Takes Gun Parrish "Supaman"
