        I’m not completely sure myself! Well, if you click on the song title you can go to the youtube video for it. I personally think “Messengers” by Lecrae would be a cool one for him. Check it out!

        (If the link doesn’t work, just type Lecrae Messengers in a youtube search.) “Callin’ all the Messengers…♪”
