Nelly Concert Cancelled by Ministers



Ministers from 20 churches have banded together to protest rap singer Nelly's performance at Arkansas State University on March 12, 2005

Rap singer Nelly's performance at Arkansas State University on March 12, 2005 has been protested by ministers from 20 churches, who band to utter their objection on her negative message songs to be delivered in their town. Rev. Adrian Rodgers of the Fullness of Joy Church frankly says those ministers' need to act against the concert soon as they learn some bad and dirty lyrics include in Nelly's songs.

Representing his other minister friends, Rodgers says their concern about the rapper's lyrics that include references to drugs, sex and violence and songs that Rodgers claims are demeaning to women. For such things, he and many other pastors encourage people in Jonesboro to not buy the tickets to the concert which may lead to problems.

However, Tim Dean, the director of ASU's Convocation Center, where the concert is to be held, says that there have been 5,500 tickets sold in line with the brisk ticket sales.
