J.J. Hairston & Youthful Praise are to the Millennial Generation what Hezekiah Walker and Donald Lawrence’s respective ensembles are to the prior generation of church folks who were raised on contemporary choir music. For just over a dozen years now, the Soul Train Award nominated/Stellar Award winning group has ignited a barn fire full of gospel radio hits that have become standard fare in Sunday morning church services (including many non-black congregations) such as “Lord, You’re Mighty,” “Incredible God, Incredible Praise,” “After This,” “Lord of All,” “Resting On His Promise,” “Bless Me,” “It Pushed Me” and their current Top 5 hit single “You’re Mighty”. Now, this exciting choir that’s shared stages with personalities as diverse as The Muppets’ Miss Piggy and Patti LaBelle is about to record their eight yet-titled live album to commemorate 15 years in the Gospel music industry on Wednesday, May 11th at City of Praise Family Ministries (8501 Jericho City Drive). The recording session begins at 7pm and is free and open to the public. The choir will perform past hits and feature some new songs as well.
