Grammy-nominated artist, JJ Hairston, and his team of powerhouse vocalists, Youthful Praise

have garnered significant acclaim for their empowering sound that strongly resonates with its

listeners. Continuing to invoke encouragement and emotion amongst its fans - Hairston and

Youthful Praise are excited to share their upcoming album aptly titled “Not Holding Back”.

Set to be released first quarter 2021, the album consists of an organically composed list of 12 live

tracks - each with its own message, but cohesively gathered to directly touch his audience, as is

always the intention. During a time when the world physically took a pause and stayed in this year, Hairston did not retract from creating art for others. Instead, he took to the studio and fearlessly laid out his voice onto the medium he knows best: music. This new set of work promises to uplift its listeners to do the same - to combat the fear of being vulnerable, and illuminate the power of never holding back.

Adding to the album’s inspiring sound are a number of featured artists, some of which include the incomparable Kierrra Sheard, the always celebrated Travis Greene, as well as the album’s title track co-writers - Maverick City. Prior to the album’s full release in 2021, Hairston and Youthful Praise anticipate to release both its title track “Not Holding Back” and an additional single, later this year. With over 20 years in ministry, it’s no question that JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise have

achieved an undeniable mark within the Gospel music realm. Among Hairston’s previous

accolades are 7 Stellar Gospel Music Awards, a Billboard Music Award, and an ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Award. JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise were also nominated for a 2018 GRAMMY for Best

Gospel Performance/Song. Hairston currently has 9 nominations for the upcoming Stellar

Awards showcase.

Currently, JJ Hairston is continuing his devotion to a greater purpose alongside his wife, Trina

Hairston, having recently released a book “A Miracle Marriage”

together, while also serving as

Campus Pastors for All Nations Worship Assembly (ANWA) Washington, DC campus. Using his

own experience of growth, love and faith - Hairston is committed to deliver a message of

unwavering faith and love to all people, not just through music, but on all platforms. WITH JJ HAIRSTON
