Morehouse Alum Builds Spotify for Sermons!
Reader every ‘no’ isn’t a ‘no’. Sometimes a no means not right now. The amount of rejection that you have to get comfortable with is absurd but necessary. Don’t give up by anyone telling you no. It's called Roho. An online library where you can view sermons from America’s most prominent African-American church leaders, Dr. Otis Moss III, Dr. Marcus Cosby, and Rev. Cynthia Hale, just to name a few. Created by Nicholas Richards, a Morehouse Alum, Roho makes it easy for viewers to discover and share Christian content. Richards, a minister himself, says the idea for Roho came during a breakup when he went online in search of spiritual encouragement. He found himself on YouTube watching sermons, however, the sermons were constantly interrupted by alcohol ads.
Which as Richards states “In this particular context, that’s [the alcohol ads] not what I wanted to see.” During the same period, Richards had also started preaching and friends were asking for copies of his sermons. Richards believed that people not only wanted to hear his sermons, but also wanted to have access to all sermons. So, Roho was born. Last June, Richards left his job as assistant pastor at Abyssinian Baptist church and dedicated himself to building Roho full-time.
