JJ Hairston And Youthful Praise Drop New CD October 28th

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

JJ Hairston sets the record straight about his continued recordings with Youthful Praise.   “People always ask me if I’m going to go out on my own and do my own thing. I think Youthful Praise is a part of what I do so I’d never make a J.J. Hairston record. It will always be J.J. Hairston & Youthful Praise.” Looking back, Hairston admits to never having intentions to lead the aggregation. “I joined just to sing tenor.  Youthful Praise taught me to be a leader. I didn’t form the group. It was already there when I got there but they made me a leader and that’s why I appreciate the group as a whole. I See Victory

Hairston and YP are excited about the October 28th release of their 7th live CD, I See Victory on Light Records. The 17 track disc features the choir and assistance from Donnie McClurkin, Karen Clark Sheard, Vashawn Mitchell, Jason Nelson and Deon Kipping.  Radio has responded to “It Pushed Me” as it  rose to #13 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart and “Bless Me” (featuring a rousing lead by Donnie McClurkin) is #27 on the Gospel Airplay chart.
