I love the video, but I much prefer the version of the song he did on your show, it was faster and had a better rhythm. The "YouTube"  version is too slow!

Wow! Anyone still thinks that christians are boring and do not know how to have fun should check this out. A christian havinf clean fun without taking himself seriously. Of course, Chris August is one of my favorite christian artists, and I could be biased in terms whatever he decides to whip out with his God-given talent. I would like to send to him to a store in the San Francisco Bay Area called Sugar Palace so that he can acquire more collection of candies to add to his Forth. :')

I love this song, and the video! Chris is the craziest guy, and so funny!

One correction though, you're calling it the 'Candy Song', and it's actually called the 'CANDY WRAP'. Because he's "Raping" about candy, and since candy comes in 'WRAP'ers, it's the CANDY WRAP.  :o)

Chris gave those who bought his CD at WinterJam a free download to the song.

THANKS CHRIS!

Did you hear about 99.5 and their comments this morning? Disgracing Christians?  I think it is so discouraging.

Good morning Lisa and Eric...I'm commenting on the "glich" gas price tank..(I'm probably on the wrong page!) but if that were me...I would actually be one of those "good 2 shoes" that would get a store manager and say "Hey..just thought you might want to know....."  I live my life as though God sees EVERY single little thing I am doing....because HE DOES.  When I take my youngest son grocery shopping-he always has to grab a chocolate milk from the milk section and drink it in the store..sometimes he will even eat a donut from the bakery while I'm shopping...so when I check out...I hand the cashier an empty chocolate milk bottle and I tell her "charge me for one donut please"....I always get weird looks..but it's the right thing to do!!!   Smile

I hate to be negative, but I HATE the "Candy Wrap" song.  I cringe everytime you play it, which has already been twice this morning.  I don't find any humor in the song and would prefer you play music that uplifts our Lord Jesus Christ because that is why I listen.

awesome!

I'm sitting post diggin' some K-Love...always AWESOME music selection/programming (btw)..ALWAYS!!!

...& I hear check out Chris' "Candy" rap song. I'm from Arkansas & Chris is synonymous here w/ Kris Allen; he's hip & you might remember his American Idol success & Christian influences coming through in the contest too.

BUT I get my eyes opened when I check out the video, 'cuz no one can JUST hear the song. Although I must confess the faster beat version he demo'd on air for your show is by far much more "my cup of chocolate milk"! Dat's right...dude, Chris August, you ROCK!!!

Keep bust'n those rhyms out for those who challenge the christian concept of comedic expressionalism. I'm sure the BIG "G" upstairs is smiling & all that.

Can't wait to share the rap song w/ my sons, nieces, & nephews...a few coworkers who are musicians too & their kiddos!!!

I like this version but I definitely like the version he did on the show better.  Only 'cause of the crazy improvs that he did.  And the narrations about all the crazy notes or voices that he did.  I was laughing the whole way through!
