Mali also noted how scary some mainstream music is becoming, in his opinion.
"It's scary the way that [mainstream artists] are numbing the culture now, with clear and evident demonic manifestations," Mali said. "And every other week, there's another exorcism movie coming out. So demons are trying to show themselves strong, and it's their little time to do that. But they're not recognizing that the only other things that can come are angels. The only other thing that can come is God."
Speaking before the concert, Mali exuded excitement for the evening's concert.
"This is awesome," he said. "I'm so excited about tonight. I pray that everyone continues to pray for me. I'm definitely not in this for the same reason that many are—God has called me to be an artist, but I just was another guy wanting to sing my song, was writing music that I wanted to hear. A couple of people heard it, that turns into a hundred, that turns to a thousand, into millions. And now it has done so much for people's lives that they come out to hear it. I'm so honored, and I'm going to keep singing for what it's doing in the Kingdom."
The concert had a large impact on students who attended.
"Our prayer is that the concert would leave a deposit of God's spirit on this campus," Massiah said.
Though gospel music has not made its way fully into the mainstream, Mali will always keep the faith. "Just give it a few years," he said.
