"Last year we had a lot of experiences in Africa, Nigeria and I wanted to record what happened. It is totally different
from what people think. That's how we came to "Miracle Worker',"
said Billboard Music Award winner JJ Hairston about the new album from the choir he directs,
Youthful Praise, titled "Miracle Worker" (James Town Music/Entertainment One).
The CD release on July 26, 2019 will be accompanied by a relationship book by JJ Hairston and his
wife Trina Hairston titled "A Miracle Marriage."
"It was the passion
for worship," he said about the Nigerian people. "We're use to ‘luxuries'.
Well to people in Nigeria its luxuries. They have no middle class you are either very
wealthy or poor, but the worship for God they're the same. That worship experience is
on a CD. You get to see what true worship is like."
The first single off of the project is the title track
"Miracle Worker." It was recorded in Abuja, Nigeria at the Coza Church. On June
22nd Grammy nominated JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise launched the "Love
and Miracle Tour" at Radio One Praise in the Park event in Washington, DC.
JJ Hairston said his passion for God and all He has done for him is the reason he is still
in the business of spreading the Gospel through music. He said the book came to be when he and his wife were
about to divorce and God told him to work on it.
About the book three-time
Billboard nominated Hairston said, "It was because we were literally in divorce court.
Had the paper work and God said to me that He did not forget me and together, with my
wife, we had to do certain steps. The book shows the actions we had to take." www.JJHairston.com
