With a hit single (and video) making its way through the social media world, XMAN Minsitries (Krosswordz, PS2, Xclusive) had everyone anticipating a great show. Add on some of the HD Platform’s HIP HOP favorites and it is a guaranteed party.


For the first time blessing the stage, MC LIFE translated his powerful testimony of gangs and anger into some hard-hitting music that kicked off the night. Joined on stage by G-LOC, the two shared their stories of how Jesus changed their lives. From G-LOC’s “66 Reasons” to MC Life’s “I Promise You”, the 2 MC’s rocked THE PLATFORM for the first of many shows to come.


“When I Say Jesus You Say Light Life”! KING D started his performance with one of the many reasons why he is one of the local favorites. His crowd participation and catchy hooks brings back that classic Hip Hop feel good vibe. Performing his hits, King D had the entire place dancing…and bouncing when he dropped a remix of the old school jam “Bounce, Rock, Skate”. If you’re looking for that old school hip hop vibe make sure to catch the MC who reps that Kingdom Dynasty, King D.


I think every man, woman, and child was “popping their collar and leaning to the side” after this next performance. THE SAINT brought his west coast sound and hyped every body up out of their seats. Tha Saint put together a nice set that he called his past, present, and future, taking the crowd through hits from his past and up coming albums. He definitely ended his set with a bang, debuting his new single “The Holy Ghost Walk” which I promise you, we’ll be seeing a lot more of. Yeeeee!!!


WOW! That’s how I can start describing the last performance of the night. XMAN Minsitries (Krosswordz, PS2, Xclusive) SHUT IT DOWN! Over the past year Krosswordz has emerged as a PLATFORM favorite and his position has only made him allow Jesus to flow through him more and more. Not only has he stepped up as an artist but now he is joined with the equally hot MC’s PS2 & Xclusive. The three had the place jumping as soon as their beat hit, and if that wasn’t enough, they were joined on stage by CAUGHT UP’s Stephanie Lozano-Quintanar, who shined bright in their collaboration “Letters to God”. But what everyone was waiting for was that fog horn, hand clapping, whistling synth, smash hit “Turn It Up”. The crowd went crazy as soon as they announced this song and I promise you, we’ll be hearing this jam for a while. GET LIVE! –Esteban

Alex Sanchez – “Keep God the Center”
“Keyed In” by Kyle Foster

Alexander Sanchez, a soft-spoken eighteen year old boy with a surprisingly big voice and an even bigger heart, has recently been capturing the attention on the HD Platform stage and other venues across the High Desert. Sanchez has been active in leading worship and performing in multiple churches in the community including High Desert Church, The Branch Christian Church, Sunrise Church, First Assembly of God in Victorville, and more.

His musical journey began at the age of 3 years old. His first instrument was drums, taking after his father and his older brother. “It’s in my family, it’s always been there. It’s something that is a part of me.” Alex recalls music being a considerable part of his childhood and continually looking to his family and drawing inspiration to pursue music and worship.

Throughout his life music has remained his constant passion and true love. “It felt at home. It felt right.” From a child following the footsteps of musicians ahead of him, to an individual artists writing, producing, and marketing his own EP entitled “Alexander”, Sanchez has grown as both a musician and a minister for the kingdom. “[I want to] encourage the church to worship.”

“[I want] to spread the gospel and show the light of God.” The whole goal of the EP and of his music in general is to glorify God and encourage a broken community. Whether taking the stage on his own or accompanied by a band made up of his friends, it is made very clear just how committed Alex is to conveying the love of Jesus Christ.

Alex Sanchez is a great example of success through hard work, practice, and exemplifies what a Christian musician is like and the struggles they overcome. “You’re going to go through a lot of rough patches…and you’re going to want to quit…but you have got to remember this is really your goal…and this is for God. He performs both on his own or with a band all around the desert, hoping to spread a message of eternal love and salvation.

His goals are to continue to play around the desert and touch lives with his music. His sights are also set on hopefully releasing a full-length album in the near future. In regards to those following in his path and looking up to his success, he offers this encouragement; “There’s a lot to learn. You always keep learning and you always have room to grow. Always take advice from the wise and keep God the center.”
