Supaman! No, not the one from the planet Krypton, the one from Crow Agency in Montana.
Supaman, aka, Christian Parrish is a young Hip-Hop artist, Fancy-Dancer and Comedian with a positive message, emphasizing the importance of loving family, having respect for elders, and caring for ourselves. To do that, Supaman said:
We have to stay away from alcohol, drugs and influences that destroy what is good in our lives. Instead pray and look out for others, always pitching in to help wherever we can.
While teaching this truth to one of his young nephews, he told him: “You’ve got to be a Warrior.”
Supaman has gained quite a following after he became the 2014 MTV Artist of the Week for his video “The Prayer Loop Song,” which has been viewed over a million times.
I pray for the ones listening right now, struggling, who feel like giving in right now. I’ma pray for you, Pray that you come back home. I pray that you understand that you’re never alone; I pray for the single mothers and the deadbeat dads. I pray, pray for peace, I pray for change, keep on praying when everything stays the same. And I pray for the pastors in all of the churches. And those who cry following hearses, I pray for you. Pray for the sick and the poor. Pray for the rich man who don’t give to the Lord. And I pray for wisdom and I pray for power. And I pray for being ready in the final hour. And I Pray for those who keep judging men in the streets. And I pray for my friends and my enemies.
He often delivers his serious message mixed with comedy. “What is the Crow Nick name for a little person playing the Tuba?” he asked. Answer: “Little Big
Horn.” He explained what his Auntie said about his “cracy” uncles who would always come around the house, goofing off. “You are like Christmas lights, you stick together and you hang around the house all year long, some of them don’t work and the ones that do aren’t very bright.”
Returning to sober reality, he recalled: “You never know when your words are going to reach somebody in their darkest moments! I received this message in my inbox:
“Hey brother. Was sitting in my truck reading your post on suicide. I think you saved me bro…. I put the gun down & gonna face life head on. Thanks for being positive & all you do for our Native People. You really are a Supaman! Life? I can do this….. Stay Awesome brother! Much love & respect to you!”
“Then he sent this song to me. It made me cry, and I was thankful for all that God does behind the scenes everyday! Never stop inspiring and speaking life! All glory to the most high!! A’ho!”
