09/04/12 KB, one of the hottest new names in Christian rap, will be performing in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14, at Eppley Auditorium on the Culver Academies campus.

“Back to School Kickoff with KB” is open to the public. Tickets are $5 and available at the door, which open at 7 p.m. The concert is sponsored by the Academies’ Spiritual Life department.

KB’s debut album Weight & Glory was released last month and sky-rocketed overnight to the No. 2 hip-hop album on all of iTunes.

The concert “is sure to excite back-to-school students, rap fans, Christians, and folks who just love a great show,” said Will DuVal, the Academies’ Protestant youth minister.
