JJ Hairston Hosts New Sunday Radio Show

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

JJ Hairston is headed tJJ Radio Promoo radio; this time as the host of “Sunday Praise with J.J. Hairston” on Hot 93.7 FM (WZMX).

Hairston notes “it’s a huge opportunity to spread the gospel,” It’s a Hip-Hop station!  This is the first time this station has had gospel music on their station. So the fact that they’re entrusting me as the host and that they’re trying gospel music is huge! Many of the listeners don’t go to church so this program may be introducing many of them to the gospel for the first time and hopefully, eventually, to Christ.”

Sunday Praise will air from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. every Sunday beginning March 30th.   Be sure to look for JJ and the Youthful Praise ensemble on the BET Celebration of Gospel airing on April 6th as well as the release of their new single It Pushed Me hitting radio in April.

Merry Christmas!! Read About What Some of Our Favorite Gospel Artist Cherish About Christmas!

Sunday, December 25th, 2011

We asked these artists about some of their fondest Christmas memories, some of their Christmas traditions, and who they listen to during the Christmas season. See what they had to say-

MALI MUSIC

“There was a very special moment for me one particular  year in Georgia when I really felt the magic and the wrath of the holidays! I was very young and it was the year that my sisters and I were determined to make sure that we saw the gifts under the tree before we went to sleep. We took shifts for the look out! Lol! We had a little system and every hour one of us would walk down the hallway and check the tree! All of us had the same report, NOTHING!! It was so late, but we weren’t going to waiver. I dont know how or when we went to sleep, but mom and dad woke us up that morning.  We fell asleep on top of each other trying to hold out and were kind of in a pile. When we went downstairs there was an abundance of gifts! Everything was under that tree. I think I might’ve even seen Jesus under there Lol. That’s the year I received a bike called the “Air Assault”. I thought I was the man, you couldn’t tell me anything! I had no need to open anything else. I ran to the room and threw on some old wrinkled khakis, a sweater,  and my shoes were on the wrong feet. Momma was telling me to slow down but everything she was saying seemed like it was in slow motion. I had to ride this bike!We were in an apartment at the time and we lived up some stairs. I was scuffing those little walls up coming down the stairs. But I was ready! I finally got the bike on the street (after some needed assistance from Daddy) and I was off.  All the other kids were out with their stuff by then and I was ready to flex. The sunlight was gleaming off those silver rails, so clean. I was somebody and none of them could deny it.  I hit the hill and it was a really steep hill that we nicknamed “The Devils Backbone”.  I hit the hill flying!! The bike was so fast, it was amazing. Some of the other kids began to be in awe at how fast the bike was. I was proud, so I had to look back just to see their faces. I took my eyes off the road to look  at them and a truck was reversing out of it’s parking space. I did not see it in time and I hit the truck while going full speed. My front tire was wedged under the back of the truck, but my bike was still standing upright. When I came to there was an audience. The driver was terrified, and the crowd didn’t know what was about to happen. I hurt myself badly that day, it was embarrassing and a nightmare, but one of the best holiday moments EVER! These days on Christmas we have “The Wiz” on repeat the entire time. That’s our Holiday music. Peace and prosperity to you all!”

JJ HAIRSTON

“My dearest holiday memory was last Christmas because it was my newest baby’s first Christmas.  We have has become even closer since she was born, and it made the holiday so special. My wife loves Christmas music. So “This Christmas”, “Merry Christmas To You”, “Handel’s Messiah”, are some of the songs/projects that play in my house during Christmas.”

Y’ANNA CRAWLEY

“There’s an array of foods that are eaten with my family during the holiday season. Without a doubt my family’s signature white gravy, turkey, and for dessert peach cobbler. The Christmas playlist in my home consists of the legends like: Donnie Hathaway and the Jackson Five.”

MAURETTE BROWN CLARK

“I love celebrating the holidays with my family. Some of the best memories are the ones I am forming with my husband and children.  Our tradition is that we set up the tree and all the presents in our music room.  The night before there is just a tree.  We stay up all night wrapping gifts and on Christmas morning there are presents everywhere. They are big and small, and every child has their own wrapping paper theme.  Just to see their excitement coming down the stairs and running into the room to look for their “gift display” every year is the best!  It keeps me grateful that God provides for us. Call me an old softy, but I love the classics.  It isn’t Christmas until I have heard Nat King Cole singing “The Christmas Song”.”

AARON LINDSEY

I enjoy listening to old classics like Url Ides and Nat King Cole during the Christmas season. I also listen to Kirk Franklin’s Christmas album, Israel Houghton’s, and my Christmas project.”

Gospel Music’s Finest Perform in NYC to Celebrate A Thriving Harlem Based Church!

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Last night in the heart of Harlem(NYC) JJ Hairston, Damien Sneed, and Kim Burrell graced the stage at First Corinthian Baptist Church for the culmination of its Visionary & Dreamers Weekend.  Special guest Ayana George, also offered musical selections contributing to a beautiful array of sounds during the concert.

JJ Hairston served as Master of Ceremony and worship leader for the night’s event. He set the tone for a night of worship and honour to God and the Pastors (Michael& LaKeisha Walrond) that have worked tirelessly to create a thriving church. Ayana George was up first with a wonderful medley of the Forever Jones hit “He Wants It All“, and William Mcdowell’s chart topping single “I Give Myself Away“. Damien Sneed followed with his group of singers “The Levites“. They sang some well known hymns and an original piece. The musicality and vocal blend was nothing shy of amazing! Their performance was a definite highlight of the night. Last but certainly not least, Kim Burrell stepped onto the stage and inspired, encouraged, and pushed all in attendance to worship God. Her vocals are simply amazing and equally amazing is her ability to usher people into God’s presence. JJ Hairston wrapped up the event with the classic church “war cry”. It was a beautiful night and we’re looking forward to more appearances by these great artists!

Bishop Hezekiah Walker-Concert & Official Announcement of His Elevation to Presiding Bishop of the Pentecostal Churches of Jesus Christ

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

On April 24th, which is known by the gospel community as “Resurrection Sunday”, Bishop Hezekiah Walker and the Love Fellowship Tabernacle hosted morning and evening services at the Brooklyn Marriott in NYC.  We were able to attend the evening service where communion was served and the official anouncement ceremony of his elevation took place. The evening’s announcement ceremony was just a pre-cursor to the June 12th ceremony that will take place in Bridgeport, Connecticut. It was followed by a gospel concert featuring: The Love Fellowship Tabernacle Choir, The Nevels Sisters, JMoss, JJ Hairston&YouthFul Praise,  and Tye Tribbett. Bebe Winans was also in the house to help celebrate with Bishop Walker.  It was a wonderful time had by all! Congratulations Bishop Walker! We will remind our readers about Bishop’s elevation services as the ceremonial date approaches.
