About Youthful Praise
At the core of Gospel music is the Message -- messages of hope, love, redemption and salvation and its purpose is to give praise, declare faith and thank God. JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise fully embraces these concepts on their new album, AFTER THIS. “I want people to hear the messages first … I wanted to make a statement and say something instead of just captivating people with a beat or a dance,” said Hairston, long-time leader and director of Youthful Praise. To that end, Hairston wrote heavily on AFTER THIS, having 10 of the 12 songs written or co-written by him. Read more about Youthful Praise on Last.fm.
