Dana Rice's Funky Faith is a tangy, flavorful collection of funk-infused spoken word pieces in which faith and life collide to bring about a deeper self awareness and social consciousness rooted in hope. Remember the story of The Little Engine That Could? Well this artist's story is an interesting twist on that one. You see in The Little Engine That Could, the engine was determined to perform and he wanted everybody to see it. But Dana Rice, that's a whole different story. This little engine could, but didn't want to be seen doing it. In spite of this there was always a burning passion inside to let the world know about the bodacious character called Jesus Christ. Like any fire, this passion got stronger and stronger until out of the flames burst her first CD, Funky Faith!
