Von Won refreshing entire Christian rap catalog before new album release

Some people don’t know what to think when they hear the name Von Won.

  • “Isn’t he that Houston cat who likes to rap about God as much as his jewelry?”
  • “I thought he was a pastor
  • “Didn’t he change his name? I don’t even know how to pronounce it.”
  • “He’s the guy who sang ‘Welcome to H-town’ on Lecrae’s mixtape, ain’t he?”
  • “Yes, but why does he have Scarface and other secular rappers on his songs?”
  • “Does it really matter? He started the Hunger Awards to feed the homeless.”
  • “I heard he almost died after a run-in with the police.”
  • “No, he was connected with Tre9 but now works at NGEN Radio…”

Vaughaligan “Von Won” Walwyn realizes his colorful life story and the pursuit of so many varied passion projects may have created a bit of a brand identity problem in today’s crowded music market.

As a result, he’s hoping the refresh and re-release of his entire Christian catalog (seven complete albums) will remind listeners of his history and prepare them for an upcoming collection of brand new music.

“I believe my fan base is a bit fragmented,” Von Won said. “God has allowed me to cross paths with and speak to people in all walks of life. But it feels like each one only knows a small part of my full story.”

“By updating and re-releasing my entire Christian catalog, I think they’ll get a glimpse of the bigger picture and be able to track my spiritual growth over almost nine years of music ministry.”

Each digital re-release will include new album artwork and a music video for its lead single. The schedule is as follows:

  • Rise To The Top – January 29
  • Answering The Call – February 26
  • All-American Felon – March 25
  • One City Under God – April 29
  • The Century Club – May 27
  • Shock Therapy – June 24
  • Grace Still Abides – July 29

The grand finale will be Grown And Saved. This album of all new music will drop upon the conclusion of the re-releases at a yet-to-be-determined date.

“I anticipate listeners will be reminded of great songs they forgot they loved or even stumble across some new psalms that really speak to their hearts,” Von Won said.
