MOSES LAKE — Rapper GAWVI, singer Christian Cuevas, rapper KJ-52 and speaker Luke Holter will be among the performers at the Fireshed Music Festival this weekend at the Centennial Amphitheater in McCosh Park. The music is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday.

This will be the second year that the festival is sponsored by Sendero Life Center, said youth pastor Freddie Prado. Fireshed is a Christian music festival “geared for students, geared for teens,” Prado said.

“We just want to speak the message of hope,” Prado said. “Our message is simply; there is hope.”

The goal, Prado said, is to make the Christian message accessible to the audience, “in a way that every single person can connect with. A Jesus that is available to everybody.”

GAWVI is the weekend’s headliner, playing the final set Saturday night. He is known both for his EDM (electronic dance music) and as a rapper, releasing three albums and 23 singles. He released his latest album, “Panorama,” in October 2018.

Singer Daniel Olsson leads off Friday’s lineup. Olsson describes himself as a “singer, musician, songwriter, follower of Jesus.” He’s starting a solo career with a separate band, but he’s also the lead guitarist for the rock group Citizen Way.

Speaker Luke Holter will follow Olsson Friday night, and will be speaking at Sendero on Sunday. Holter is a senior director of Prophetic Sheep Ministries, based in Houston.

Christian Cuevas probably is best known to audiences from his appearance on the 11th season of “The Voice,” where he was a runner-up. Cuevas describes his music as “a mix of soul, R&B and contemporary,” and himself as a “singer-songwriter.”

Veteran rapper KJ-52 takes the stage Saturday night. He has released 11 albums; his latest album, “What Happened Was,” a collaboration with rapper Poetics, was released in May. He appeared in Moses Lake last year, liked it and wanted to come back, Prado said.

Singer Peabod also will be appearing during the festival. Based in Seattle, he started as a folk artist and transitioned to hip-hop, with his first hip-hop album released last year.
