LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A hip-hop artist from Henderson, Kentucky is using his music to spread a message of positivity and Christianity.

Dominique Cosby goes by the name Anno Domini, which means 'the year of the Lord.' Rap music is his way of sharing his experiences and life lessons with others, in hopes of providing encouragement and direction in their lives.

"I want to make music that provides hope for people," Domini said. "A lot of people hear more hard core rap, but it doesn't have hope in it. So our music provides an opportunity for people to have peace. For people who struggle with the same things we struggle with, we can put that in our music and hopefully provide and answer or direction for them."
